Sunday six, Brought to you by the wonderful Kelly.
Well, we're getting close to Halloween, so let's talk Pumpkins! Played by Rainbow man(6.12) and Blue Boy(4.7) for obvious reasons I did not attempt to ask Stuperman. He's a big grouch anyway, and who really wants more pictures of him crying?
1. What is a pumpkin?
Rainbow Man : It's a giant orange thing you can eat and it grows in the ground. It's seed is called a pumpkin seed.
Blue Boy : For putting halloween candy in
2. What do you do with a pumpkin for Halloween?
Rainbow Man : We cut faces out from them and then we put a light in it.
Blue Boy : We hold it and ring the doorbell and they give us candy.

Rainbow Man : Yes. You can put a light in it.
Blue Boy : We can go to another house and ring the next doorbell.

Blue Boy : From the pumpkin store.
5. What color is a pumpkin?
Rainbow Man : It's orange.
Blue Boy : It's green and then it turns yellow, I mean orange.
6. What shape is a pumpkin?

Blue Boy : (draws a circle in the air with his finger)
By this point it should be pretty obvious that I love Halloween. Not just the costumes but the candy. I wish I could find a photo of the first "real" carving I did for halloween. It said "Baby's first pumpkin". Looked just like this one. Rainbow Man had turned one three days before. Candy is my favorite food group, and because I hate exercise, it is really really is starting to show. But I could care less. Especially those wee little bite size chocolate bars. Or Glossets. OMG gumballs and suckers!Life is freaking good round halloween. Plus the kids go to bed at eight and I steal all the good candy. How much longer do you think I can get away with it before they notice and cause a stink?
Also the smells of halloween, the raw pumpkin as you carve. The spices. The pie.... just the general excitemnet leading up to it. It seems so much more oure then the material excitement that leads to Christmas. The kids are more concerend with the costumes then the candy. I just love it. Plus My wee little rainbow Man was circumsised at three days old ~ on Halloween. That's just funny. Brings a new meaning to the words "Trick Or Treat"
