My Pumpkin Patch
From left to right, there is Hungry Pumpkin (C1), Peacenik Pumpkin (C2), Teenage Cool Pumpkin (M), and Vampire Pumpkin (DJ). I finished the last hat with a couple hours to spare and the kids added their own touches, such as orange and black fingernails.
The kids scored at least 5 pounds of candy apiece and had a great time walking around the neighborhood with their friends. Many of the neighbors got into the spirit by playing weird music or dressing up to give out candy. The church on the corner did a "trunk or treat" in the parking lot and had a table where the kids stuck their hands into pots of gross stuff for prizes. The whole night was like a Disney Halloween -- nothing too scary, just lots of fun with friends.
