Punkin' Report

I have dramatic news from the Jack-O-Lantern front!  For openers, I always make the same face each year on the pumpkin.  But this year is different - you will note a jagged smile now replaces the curved mouth of other years.  Then, after I put it on the front porch, I got an idea to find one of my quartz lights, and a blue colored gel, and decided to light the porch with it, for a more dramatic effect. Pretty cool, huh?  But guess what - we only got 5 children!  And that was from one visit - the neighbor next door and her friend.  Now who is going to eat all the Snickers bars we bought?

Cute pumpkin. Like the cool blue. I only had @ 2 dozen kids - looks like I'll be snacking on Milky Way and Reese's Peanut Butter. Think I'l throw some in the freezer so I won't eat them all at once :-) bak

Very cool lighting & pumpkin. I only had 10 children - 3 groups.
I already ate a lot of the candy!

We only had 4 kids. We have Almond Joy to trade (we get that because we don't like it and so we don't eat it)

You both did better than we did. We were ready too. Cut out the pumpkin. Had the candle in place making it so welcoming. Front porch lights on with a basket of assorted candies eagerly awaiting little hands to grab them up. How many came? ZERO
