I have to say I don't know what happened to October? With the blink of an eye it was over. It did however go out with a banging snow storm. Atleast during the storm I was able to get some things done I wanted to accomplish before Halloween.
I had bought a bunch of pumpkins that I wanted to carve. Here in Warwick you can't carve a pumpkin too far before Halloween, the second you cut into that thing the deer verge on your house and eat up the pumpkins. This year I had them eat pumpkins that weren't even carved, that was a first.
I also made some pencil packs for my boys to share with their friends at school. I didn't want to send in candy since I knew there would be plenty after trick or treating. I was pleased with how they came out.
