Happy Halloween

This year, I'm getting ridiculously excited about Halloween. Never before have I marked the 'holiday' (it's not really a holiday) in any way at all. Of course, when I was about ten, I did go out trick or treating with my brother and sister, but that's as far as it's ever gone. I can only attribute this excitement to having a child - there seems no other logical explanation for it.

We're even having a party on Saturday (although, admittedly, H won't be enjoying that. He'll be in bed). It will be a BBQ - not very happy about the forecast of rain, but we're English, so we won't let that stop us - and the pumpkins have already arrived. I've got two templates to attempt - a witch and some bats. Photos of these will follow, providing I manage to complete the lantern without ruining the whole thing. I'm going to make Halloween cupcakes (any excuse) and try and find some spooky sound effects to play.

Overall, I think it's going to be lots of fun. I haven't gone as far as decorations but who knows? If this is a success, maybe I'll get some next year...
