pumpkin-related recaps

i’m trying not to smear chocolate on the keyboard while i dive into josephine’s stash of candy. (isn’t that the point of halloween? kids gather candy so parents can steal from their children’s trick-or-treating haul?) josephine was much more interested in dressing up than in the candy-getting part of the holiday this year. and who can blame her? the kid wants to be a cat and for two days (dance class on wednesday and halloween proper) she got to be a cat, paws and all.

she was very concerned about her face-painted whiskers and nose and kept asking “does this look ok?”. before we went out trick or treating, she wanted to put on the face paint by herself. i’m not sure this child even knows makeup exists, but i think i’m in trouble.

we went trick-or-treating with meera in her new neighborhood (she just moved — they’re going to be moving buddies). josephine was pretty worried about it all at first. the night went like this:

“i’m trembling all over!”

“mama, get the candy for me.”

“i feel scared of that [ghost, skeleton, pumpkin] even though i know it isn’t real.”

“this is more fun than i thought!”

i think the third picture down does a nice job of showing her trepidation.

staying on the pumpkin-y theme for a moment, here are some photos from our annual trip to the pumpkin patch with jami, ann and dylan. meera came along, too. (a recap of previous years’ photos is here.)

and now i have big decisions to make: does a twix or some m&ms go better with my morning tea?
