In my role as Wonderful Aunt I kind of started a Halloween tradition with my nieces and nephews. Every year (with the exception of 3 when we couldn't manage to coordinate it) for the past 15 years, we have decorated pumpkins. I say "decorate" because we don't carve. I refuse to be responsible for one of the munchkins losing a finger, and there's a very good chance that I would cut off one of my own, so early on we decided painting and gluing were the way to go.

We have had cowboy pumpkins, cheerleader pumpkins, vampire pumpkins, clown pumpkins, fisherman pumpkins, construction worker name it, we have pumpkinized it.

This year?

I love being an aunt. :)
