Happy Halloween.

At the end of September I saw the pumpkins go on sale and wondered to myself whether Ali would still be interested in Halloween, being as how he is 8 now and everything.
So I bought a big 'un and he was so excited. 

Bearing in mind that he does not tolerate photo shoots, snaps, portraits or indeed the camera anywhere near him without a scowl, I was astonished that he wanted me to take his photo with his new pumpkin.

I used them here for this challenge class for the UKS Cybercrop.

Quite quickly I could see that we would need another pumpkin. I could tell this because I found him in the utility room with his pumpkin and a screwdriver somehow managing to make a hole and extracting the seeds which he then insisted on planting in the garden. We explained the pumpkin growing cycle to him and he has agreed to hold off for a bit.
So I bought him another and it has been hidden in the shed.
The dressing up bag has been raided.
The lounge has been decorated.

Cobwebs have been strewn from the light fitting and spiders attached.

...and scary movies acted out.

I used these photos for a challenge class from the cybercrop at UKS.

Finally, I made him a wreath to add to his decorations which was from a challenge on UKS.

I would like to say a big thank you to my teamie Maria who sent me these halloween papers from Fancy Pants last year, they are gorgeous and I have so enjoyed using them.

So I think we are good to go now. I am off to find the haribos.
