On Thursday night I carved my little pumpkin from Sainsbury's--the patterns with the carving kit were too big, so I had to redraw a smaller version and carve it from that. Turned out pretty well. I roasted the pumpkin seeds on Friday and they were fantastic! Friday night we went to the movies--"An American Werewolf in London". The reviews made it sound more funny than scary, but it was pretty scary, too--lots of gore with very fake-looking blood. Still, it was perfect for Halloween, and it had some scenes on the North Yorkshire Moors, so that was cool.
On Halloween itself, Saturday, we watched the Disney version of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and went out to dinner, then on to Fab Cafe. It was a fantastic place to go for Halloween--they really get into it. The staff dresses up, the place is all decorated, and they give out free snacks and drinks! We had a great time!
