This is Seth on his 19th birthday.
I have made a pumpkin cake for him for many a birthday.
One thing about having a Halloween birthday is you always have a theme to build your birthday party around. When Seth was little all the kids would wear their Halloween costumes to his party and we'd have a hayride. We did bobbing for apples one year, but all the kids got wet and made a fat mess so we didn't do that again. I remember the year I attempted caramel apples and all the caramel slid off and puddled around the bottom of the apple. I tried to make it sound gourmet by calling it "Apples on a stick in a bed of caramel"! Basically it was a recipe fail!
One thing I love about Halloween and Fall is decorating. Actually I love that about every season, but there is something about the colors of Fall that makes me happy. When Seth was born on Halloween I started collecting pumpkins and Fall decorations. I have as many decorations for Fall as some people have for Christmas.
We are enjoying having a wood burning fireplace in our new house.
Luke wanted to carve the jack-o-lantern all by himself this year. I think he did a great job!
Bring on the trick or treaters!
Happy Halloween from Louisiana Y'all!
