Halloween Costumes and Pumpkin Carving

Halloween weekend was fun since we had a costume party to attend. We're so bad coming up with costume ideas. We always have been. Our problem is we don't like spending a ton of money and we also don't have a lot of free time to make or come up with cheaper ideas. But after some brainstorming we both came up with some fairly easy costumes.

After realizing I could wear my own glasses with a Where's Waldo costume, I went on a hunt for a striped shirt. Surprisingly I found one quickly and on sale. So that was me done. Adam decided to be Ash (from Evil Dead) without the chainsaw hand. Though I insisted he find a Boomstick which we found at a dollar store. I'm happy with how easily our costumes came together. They weren't super original or completely authentic, but I think they're pretty darn good considering how much time and money we spent on them.

Our yearly Halloween tradition is to carve pumpkins which we did Sunday night after watching the original Halloween movie. Adam picked a super complicated design but it was worth it. Bowser looks amazing. Mine is a little more basic considering I needed some help with the carving and used my left hand when I could.

I'm a little sad the fall season is over here. Leaves are gone from the trees, pumpkin decorations are on clearance, and the chance of snow is high. But that also means I'm allowed to embrace the Christmas season fully.... so I apologize in advance if you follow me on any social media. Be prepared for Christmas everything!
