That's right, I'm probably one of the only mom's in the world who doesn't let her kids have candy, they rarely get cookies unless they are all natural, they don't really get chocolate, and they can no longer have red licorice (we've found red #40 makes them very cranky and extra whiney.)
Sadly the 2 pumpkins Jeremy carved were smashed in the street shortly after we returned from our candy adventure, while the 2 I carved were safe. I carved both of the kids' pumpkins. I can't remember the last time I carved a pumpkin. The kids picked out the shapes for eyes and nose, then A wanted her's to have teeth, P wanted his to have a tongue. Here's a glimpse of their pumpkins on the 30th.
