We are interupting this Half Term break at the cottage for
- A Halloween Party and Trick or Treating with the neighbours back at home
- A trip to the dentist for me including root canal treatment (ouch)
So while I am at home I will share a few halloween pics, a pumkin carving layout and ……..a turnip!
First my kids in their Halloween costumes:
Some scary witches
who can’t stay scary for long!
and then a very happy little pirate.
On Sunday, after a walk on the beach we did some pumkin carving. The journalling was written and typed in by my younger daughter – a digi-scrapist in the making?

It took so little time in comparison to how long it took us to hollow out a turnip (YES – TURNIP!) when we were children. Pumpkins hadn’t reached the shores on Ireland in the seventies, nor had most of the halloween stuff now available. For us it was a turnip, an old white sheet with holes to be a ghost, and some bobbing for apples!
I mentioned this a while back on this blog, and received a lot of comments and some hilarity on my turnip, so when purchasing our pumpkin, I could not resist a photo of a turnip to share.
It brings back many a memory of aching hands and bent spoons and we spent hours trying to create a lantern. I was not tempted, even for a second, to try to recreate the actual lantern, so a photo of an intact turnip will have to suffice.
So which would you choose – a pumpkin, or a turnip – the decision is yours!
