I never carved a pumpkin before. Even when I lived in the States, we never really got into Halloween. Shame actually, because I think it’s quite a fun little celebration. Although people tend to over commercialise it sometimes. But carving pumpkins is definitely one of the fun parts of Halloween. Something you can do together without having to spend oodles of money.

Max’s school is doing a pumpkin afternoon on Friday. We carve pumpkins at home, take them to school and they will light them at assembly.

Here’s our attempt:

Not bad, ey? I always liked Nightmare Before Christmas and Jack was always one of my favourites! There’s still an other pumpkin waiting to be made, so we’ll have one at home too.

I wonder if you’re doing anything for Halloween…
