I think we came up with a new tradition this year. Carve the pumpkin on Halloween Day. She woke up this morning asking to watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown to get some pointers for her masterpiece. It was nice to spread the spirit out over the whole day. At least it was nice to eat the freshly roasted pumpkin seeds all day (I tried sprinkling them with garlic salt, you know to keep the vampires away, very good).
