October's accessories are in full force at our house. Last night we carved, then ate dinner by jack-o-lantern-light on the porch. Seth prayed over the food and asked, "bless that Lucy will like my scary pumpkin and that it will scare her away." They both picked out a face and Craig was our carver. I scooped out the seeds, etc. onto a paper bag out back while Hazel sampled. Lucy yelled, "Hazel's eating the junk!" I saved the seed part of the junk for fresh roasted pepitas spiced with a bit of Tony Cachery's. We even let the kids stay up until 6:30 so they could view the final product in all its spooky glow:
No wonder everyone loves October.
