Sandy: We have great memories of Halloween when the children were young. For many years we would go house-to-house with our friends in their neighborhood in Palo Alto. I would look forward to making costumes for the kids, whipping out their fantasy character. The most difficult to make was Lumière from Beauty and the Beast. While in First grade, my son had such a strong desire for a “Mohawk” haircut that I agreed he could have one for Halloween as long as he had the Mohawk cut off by school on Monday morning. I’ve never been fond of cutting faces into pumpkins but the picture is my attempt using my left hand. Considering my pumpkins never looked great, this is pretty good. The oyster knife, zester and natural blemishes of the pumpkin helped. It was suppose to look like a zombie but he looks too happy and silly.
