It’s that time of year again.

We have a slightly competitive family. So every year the knives come out for the pumpkin carving challenge with my oldest brother.

Really, it’s just an excuse for us all to be big kids.

S1 loves it too. A quiet sunday afternoon carving pumpkins.

In fact, every year she lights them and puts them outside to invite in trick or treaters…

in 4 years in the street we are yet to have a single on visit but that doesn’t deter her at all.

I love that about her. Always the optimist.
