My October One Roll, One Day photo project post is late because I shot on literally the last day of the month: Halloween! The holiday wasn’t quite the same as year’s past, but our kiddos still had fun!
Pumpkin carving is a tradition that stayed the same, and was a highlight of the day. Malcolm asked for a scary face and Celia wanted a silly one. The kids enjoyed digging the “guts” out of the the pumpkins. I drew the faces, and Matt did the carving. For the first time we baked the seeds to have for a snack! The day mostly included normal Saturday things like scooter riding, fruit cleaning, and just hanging out being silly.
We are fortunate to have a couple neighbors on our “quaran-team” who we got to share the fun of costumes with. We are also lucky enough to have other neighbors who made the day exciting with decorations and treats. Candy collection looked a little different this year, but the kids actually enjoyed the new ideas! A couple neighbors got creative with slides and tubes for distributing candy in a socially distant way! Some went above and beyond and set out individual bags for each kid! I did miss the anticipation of ringing the doorbell and waiting; the “trick or treat!”; the casual banter about costumes. But overall I’d say it was a success (and by success I mean the kids snagged some Reese cups for me to devour after they went to bed.)
