I'll be honest. I was a exhausted once Halloween was over this year. I think it had to with the fact that it was a very, very busy month with General Conference, Evelyn's birthday, a trip to NYC, 2 family parties, Em and her kids in town, lots of Relief Society responsibilities and then Halloween.
Despite our busyness, I didn't want to forgo creating traditions with my own family. We painted pumpkins, had a pumpkin-themed preschool, and cooked dinner in a pumpkin.
