a Spider, a Web, and a Pig

This year we started getting into the halloween spirit by carving a pumpkin with Amanda and Zeno last week over a bowl full of chili and again this week by carving a round zucchini- Gio wanted to carve a ping-pong table and this is what we came up with (we did our best).

Little Lottie was really afraid of this huge pumpkin, she did not want to be near it!

For breakfast we had Pumpkin Pancakes with Cinnamon Syrup YUMMY!

In the afternoon we were invited to a Halloween- Birthday party for our friend Carter, he turned 2. It was a perfect occasion to plan costumes and be creative! We had a good time!

We went as Charlotte, Wilber and the Web! It was very fitting for us! I made our costumes with things we had around the house, with the exception of Gio's nose and ears- I cut up a hand puppet from IKEA for that!

Happy Halloween to you all!!!

It was so funny to watch little Charlotte the spider crawl across the floor-- all legs in motion on Skype. Thanks for sharing your festivities with us

I'm glad you celebrated even though it's not an Italian tradition! Your costumes looked great. I love the web idea and that the spider is carried by it!
