    2nd Sat in a pumpkin
    3rd Fake cloth pumpkin hat
    4th Same

    8th Fake plastic pumpkin head (couldn't find one big enough anymore)

    10th Sadness. Even fake wouldn't fit.


    Also, can I just say that I love the insane person commenting on the post on CRAFT? If someone does call protective services, it was probably that loon! :P

    Oh, goodness me, that is absolutely hilarious, genuinely laugh-out-loud.

    It lightened a grim day.

    I trust this is the start of a life-long starring role on the site?

    Tooooooooooo cute!!!!! :0)!!!!! Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

    Here's a finger play I used to do when my children were young (author unknown)


    Three  little pumpkins sitting on a gate

    The  first one said "oh my it's getting late!"

    The second one said "let's run and run and run!"

    The third one said," It's Halloween fun!"

    Shwwooosh went the wind
    and (clap hands together) out went the lights,

    And the three little pumpkins rolllllled out of sight!
