It’s tough being a kid in our house at Halloween. My husband and I both love this holiday and we have forced our love on our kids since they were wee little ones.
You get thrust into pumpkins for the sake of cute pictures!
Iris at 5 months old began this tradition
Bency at 4 months old getting the pumpkin shot
Cesar at 1 month old being shoved into the pumpkin…have to keep tradition alive!
You get laid in piles of leaves for the sake of cute pictures!

Bency at 4 months for his leaf photo op
Poor Cesar at 1 month keeping up the tradition and hating every minute of it!
You are expected to help decorate the front yard with whatever crazy ideas your parents have.

When your Dad is an expert pumpkin carver; you must follow in his footsteps and create many pumpkin masterpieces starting at a very early age.

Lastly, the hardest part of being a kid in our household is your Mom makes you wear Halloween clothes ALL month long!
