We have been getting our Halloween on, though!
First I got a little crafty with some friends and made this little witchy thing, that now lives on top of my fridge. It's not typically my thing, but I had a really fun time and am quite pleased with how it turned out.
We went to a pumpkin patch in search of The Perfect One,
And to a corn maze.
We made paper pumpkins - again.
And we took this little train driver out trick or treating.
But not before he had spent some serious time driving his train on the pipes outside. Priorities.
Espen and his loot.
It's really true that holidays really come into focus when you have children of your own. I've always thought Halloween was fun, and have gotten into dressing up and decorating before, but it never really meant much. Seeing the pure joy and excitement on Espen's face tonight, though, made it about so much more than pumpkins and candy. It's fantastic to be given a second chance to catch a glimpse of the magic in the world that only children can see.
