Last Day of Blogtoberfest!
Tonight was Hallowe'en night, and we have been back from taking our son out trick-or-treating for a while.
Yesterday the weather was warm (66 F), windy, and very very rainy, flood advisory rainy.
Today the temperature dropped to 44 F (about 7 C) and it stayed windy. Brrr! That was some cold trick-or-treating. A lot of people left their porch lights off, and it looked like a lot of people stayed home or went to Halloween parties.
Those of us who trooped from house to house agreed that it was cold!
We left our jack o'lantern burning while we were gone.
It was a little different this year. Actually, it's been a little different ever since our son got old enough to voice an opinion on how it should be carved. (One year we had Godzilla and a lobster!)
This year it was the game character from Fancy Pants Adventure by Brad Borne.
Our son looked at the computer and drew a Fancy Pants guy about two inches tall, and I scanned his drawing, scaled it up, and carved it into this year's pumpkin.
I had never done the shading technique before, but it came out well enough - the kid was happy, so I'm happy.
After I took pictures, I emailed them across the room so our son could send them to Brad Borne.
Technology. It's amazing stuff.
