For Halloween I was Super Knitter, the supper hero of knitting. It was hard to decide what to be this year seeing as I had to wear it to work where I am a Montessori preschool teacher. So my costume had to be both kid interesting/appropriate but I also had to work all day in it. Oh, and no full face masks, scares the kids. It ended up being a great costume because it was a great segue to talk about where our clothes come from and how they are made! Everything can be turned into a lesson! Also fun to show off my new hat and other things that I have knit.
This is a photo of our pumpkin installation this year. First off my husband did a very silly thing. He was so excited about carving his pumpkin that he started carving it before he had even gotten the seeds and guts out. When he finally got around to cleaning out the inside I don't think he did a very good job because even by the next morning the squirrels had been gnawing at the eyes and mouth making his pumpkin look a little rabid while they completely left my pumpkin alone. So, running with the theme, Gabe quickly added stick arms and made his pumpkin look like it was eating my pumpkin's brains. Ah, young love! To make things even stranger, my stepmother sent me a picture of my dad's pumpkin and it looked just like my husbands in the style of turning the pumpkin on its side and using the stem as the nose. Creepy!
