In my 10 years of living in America I carved pumpkin only once. Until today.
Each year, I had struggle to really enjoy this time of the year. As they say, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and I came to USA as a grown woman, fully formed and rooted in my culture and traditions. It was hard to simply switch from one to another, and “just have fun”.
Each year my husband dragged me to go trick-or-treating, and I did… in rain and cold, too.
The things we do for kids…, and husbands, right?
This year Halloween came from nowhere. I think being busy helped me not to stress about it. I haven’t have much time for that. Instead of stressing and complaining I have been enjoying my kids and their excitement. They’ve had the best time ever picking costumes, going to pumpkin patches, and bragging about carving the pumpkin. Not to lie to you, I think I was asked about the carving more then 30 times today…
So today I had some one on one time with that darn pumpkin, and here is a short documentation from it. Plus some extra photos of our Super Hero Girl.
I don’t know how I’m going to feel about Halloween next year, but so far I’m having a good time…
What about you?
