Growing up I never celebrated or even acknowledged halloween. I was told not to open the door if any children knocked for trick or treat. Due to that Halloween is a holiday I’ve never really been fussed about. However since having children my partner was excited to take Ahaziah trick or treating. Personally I have no issues with Halloween. I know everyone has their own opinion but for me I don’t think it is anything negative as such, it was just a holiday which I didn’t celebrate growing up.
was the first year we did anything for Halloween, I stated that there was no way I would be knocking on anyones door saying trick or treat so I left that for my partner. However, since I love to be creative I thought I would carve my first ever pumpkin. Ahaziah really enjoyed it.
Micaiah was able to join in this year. The previous year we carved the pumpkin and baked biscuits so I did the same this year. I love personalising things so I carved “Zai Cai” on to the pumpkin instead. It gets better though.
I think my creativity got better. I showed the boys examples of different pumpkins for them to choose from. Ahaziah choose a face and Micaiah choose a Bat and honestly seeing them light up in the dark (picture is at the top) it looked so cool. I wonder how they will look this year.
I want to conclude and say don’t let your childhood, or other peoples belief or opinion get in the way of letting your children explore and create memories in their childhood. I let the boys choose what they wanted to carve this year. Ahaziah wants a skeleton and Micaiah want Chase from PawPatrol. Watch this space to see how it turns out.
