When I was growing up, my dad and I had a Halloween tradition of driving around to find the biggest pumpkin possible and then carving it together. This weekend he was nice enough to pass along the tradition with Atticus and Norah. Atticus wasn't too sure about this new activity; he spent most of the time in his great-grandma's lap checking out the action from a distance. Norah, on the other hand, thought it was fantastic. A big orange thing to chew on! Something to stick her hands in! Gooey pumpkin guts to wave around!
This morning Atticus practiced his newest skill, climbing up into chairs, while observing the pumpkin from a closer proximity. Videos of his weekend will be posted soon.
