the night we ditched the pumpkin walk

Since we're at a new elementary school this year, we were all relieved to find that the new school has a pumpkin walk.  That's cuz we have a family tradition of ditching it.  And then having a bigger, better party at our house.

Or a party at our house, anyway.

Last week, Kate ran into the house after school shouting, "Yeah!  It's the pumpkin walk tonight!  That means we get to skip it!"

If you know us at all, you know the story.  It all started out because I was too lazy to help the girls carve extra pumpkins for the pumpkin walk.  And it was cold.  And it just didn't sound very fun.  So we bribed them with a party.  Same thing every year- donuts on a string, pin the nose on the pumpkin, and silly pictures of the gang. 

It stuck.

Plus, I get to eat sugar and kiss my man all at the same time.  Bonus for me!

Samuel is already a fan.  Turns out, he didn't think the pumpkin walk was worth all the hassle, either. 

We're pretty relieved we won him over so easily.

'Til next year, pumpkin walk.  You're always the best night we never had.
