This little post is only a prelude to the next. I had to address a tiny issue in these pictures.
Can anyone tell me what this child is wearing?
She is carving a pumpkin, yes. But does this task require special attire? Has she taken the goolish season so literally that she must immerse herself into the festivities with such ardent enthusiasm?
A closer look reveals its shinier aspects. It could be fashionable, even.
Perhaps she is developing a ritual costume for pumpkin carving.
Is this her attempt at nouveaux fashion?
She might be trying to impress a friend.
Though he doesn’t require any encouragement.
Maybe she is trying to match his look. Black top.
A plastic sack is as appealing on this child as any other top to her friend.
Oh wait! That IS a plastic sack, isn’t it?
I know. This is her attempt to protect herself from those flying seeds and pumpkin strings released in the process of pumpkin slaughter.
She did a great job. Will show you later.
I love her ingenuity and creative nature and, as her mother, have to brag on it.
She is just my little piece of heaven today.
