Nothing like waiting until the last day to carve pumpkins. :) Worked out though.

I normally try to do a Samhain observance the day before Halloween because that night is just too full of other amp. :)

The chickens are wild for the dried dill seeds!
We went to a local pumpkin patch since I didn't have pumpkins to carve yet.
|Is that a headlock or a hug?|
|I could not believe Orion wanted to ride the ponies! He has not done that for YEARS!|

I have always wanted to visit the "tunnels" under Portland, so I thought the special Halloween season version would be fun. There was alot of really interesting history on the tour, but later somebody told me this company's version is mostly bunk, and they weren't ever really any tunnels. So not really sure what to believe about that, but it was still fun. :)
|This was supposedly an opium den. There was also a story about a woman who was murdered who sometimes appears in that window. Woooooo!|
|This was some crazy boxer that I already forgot the name of. :) He used to have fights down in the basement and was allegedly involved in the shanghai business as well.|

|I found this cute and easy craft online. It is just magnetic paper that I painted and cut into pumpkin shapes. The kids have had alot of fun with them.|
|Orion made this one and insisted it stay exactly like this lol.|
|Another fun and easy one! Just some white cardstock and streamers and a marker.|
|My favorite craft from this year. Some dowels and cheap white fabric and stuffing - a ring of dancing ghosts!|
