Pictures of pumpkins before 10.

I've had a really busy day shopping for food and sorting Pats and Niall out to go Halloweening. They are out now. Patrick is with his friends and Niall and his friend Alfie have my husband trailing behind them. He doesn't want him there because he thinks he is old enough to walk the streets at night but he had no choice.
I'm off to next doors party for a few hours soon, but will come back at 10 for the draw.

Had loads of kids knock already and now totally out of sweets, so they are getting skeletons instead. And its only 7pm already. Wish i had bought more now.
I also made lots of printouts for the little ones to make halloween decorations when they get home. I made them look like scrolls. I've heard loads of them say to their mum i've given them treasure maps and they have been all excited with them, lol.
Oh to be little!

Here's some pics of the pumpkins i carved with Patrick. Had a little bit of a fire happen too with one of the candle jars and when i moved it the whole jar exploded.
So i put it out with water and the kids going by loved all the smoke which looked like a cauldron.
Heres some pics.

    We've had a lot of children knocking too, we've not run out of goodies yet, but hard to eat your Chinese meal and answer the door! lol

  3. The pumpkins look amazing nikki and love all the jars too, bet the kids thought it was brilliant at your house! What a cool idea to give them printables, always good to have something for them to do when all the fun of trick or treating is at an end......theyll be back in their drones next year as word goes round!!lol Kate and John xx

  4. Amazing jack o'lanterns! I wish there was a lady like you on my block when I was little...

  6. Love the photos nikki,especially the pumpkin with the sick.....eeuuw ! LOL
    Last night we were the street that halloween forgot and I have a whole load of halloween goodies left uneaten !! I think this was partly because I had no time to carve my usual pumpkin and we have lots of scroogey neighbours LOL

  11. Hi Julie.

    At least you have them to eat yourself. I'm quite a chocolate and sweets fan so could eat them no bother.

  13. Hi Susan. I wish there were nice houses when i was a kid too! It really wasn't a happening thing here when i was a child, so my mum always held a party with horrible activities.
    Plus she made a money cake and you would pray you got all the 10p's, lol.
    I think money cakes are an irish thing and nothig to do with halloween.

  15. Hi Michelle.

    Hope they didnt empty the sweet tray. I like a few spares for myself.

  16. Hi Julia.
    Not too great treasure because i had to be stingy with the sweets.
    I did buy enough, but during the week my own children have been pinching them unknown to me.
    Hope you had a nice night!
