#49 – Neighbourhood Halloween decorations tour

When I was a kid, my parents would take us driving around the neighbourhood on Christmas Eve to see all the best lights and I just loved it.  So we put it on our list to do with Henry.

We also noticed (around Halloween 2014 when we were walking, walking, walking trying to get our stubborn babe to come), that our neighbours did a great job with Halloween, so on the list it went.

What we didn’t consider is how darn creepy it made us feel walking around the ‘hood taking photos of our neighbour’s houses.  So here are the few photos that aren’t out of focus, have half a hand or are mostly sidewalk as we tried to take photos without looking like we were casing the houses.   This selection certainly doesn’t do the street justice, there were some spectacular displays.

Wish us luck for our Christmas jaunt.

#96 – Family Hallowe’en costumes

Is there anything cuter than a baby in a costume?   We were pretty excited for Henry’s second first real Hallowe’en (last year Hallowe’en was the day we got home from the hospital with brand new Henry, so we didn’t participate).  Best part?  Adam’s mother is an amazing seamstress and offered to make not just Henry’s costume, but ours as well.  And how amazing are they?  Let the wild rumpus start!

#13 – Roast pumpkin seeds

Carving a pumpkin and then gorging on roasted seeds afterwards is basically a perfect Fall afternoon.  Yum.


Details: We used this recipe from Oh She Glows as a guide.  The seeds ended up tasting delicious, but I think I did something weird along the way, as they are not golden, but sort of patchy.

#45 – Carve a pumpkin

We were really hoping to do this with baby present, but given that we are ten days past our due date, and no sign of his arrival (we’re just as frustrated and bored as you’d expect), we decided to just go for it.  We’re pretty pleased with our little pumpkin, and are hoping this baby arrives by Hallowe’en to enjoy it!
