A squash is a squash?

Our Halloween creations!
So we realized this year that getting a pumpkin in Hawaii is a feat.  Or at least the kind of thing you have to plan ahead for.  I saw the pumpkins in the supermarket a few weeks ago and thought, "Psh!  We're going to the pumpkin patch!"  Well.... we went to the pumpkin patch on the second day it opened and.... NO pumpkins left!  Eeek!  Well what is a mommy to do???  My sister told me to carve a butternut squash.  I think she was joking.  But I did it.  AND IT WAS SO CUTE!  It was a pain to carve, but I think I may do one from now on!  I love the shape of it- so unique!  We also had to carve our little decoration pumpkin- Now I'm glad I went nuts buying pumpkins for Kekito this year.  Otherwise we'd have had the lone Butternut.

Our other Halloween creation was a bundle of window decorations made from construction paper!  Kekito had so much fun coloring them all in.  And even more fun peeking at them through the window everyday!

What fun things did you make this year???
