Pumpkins, Nudists and Halloween 2016

In Motherhood, Parenting by Jen19 Comments

I have to admit to sometimes being a bit of a Halloween scrooge, because after the over abundance of parties, trunk or treats and ALL of the obligations, I mean hoopla that precedes the big day, I am kind of done with the whole thing by the time Halloween actually gets here.

But this year actually was quite fun, because my 3 year old finally figured out the holiday that is Halloween. The last couple of years she had mostly been dragged along by her older brother and sisters, but this year she was soooo excited. I think besides the food, the best part of any holiday is seeing my children’s reactions to it.

So today, here is the JENerally Informed 2016 Halloween Recap!

Some of you may have amazing pumpkin carving skills. Sadly, I do not, but Jen’s Guy more than makes up in that department.

This year our 3 year old told her Daddy that the pumpkin had to be scary.

Here’s a  joke for you to use next year. You are welcome by the way…

Why did Dracula’s mother give him cough medicine?

Because he was having a coffin fit!

Ready for another one? Just say yes, OK.

Who won the skeleton beauty contest?
No body.

What would you call the ghost of a door-to-door salesman?

A dead ringer.

One more. What do skeletons always order at a restaurant?
Spare ribs!

P.S. The 70’s dress my teen is wearing, was my costume one year when I was about her age. Crazy!

She also had a full crew of M & M’s that went trick or treating with us. Cute!

Last Halloween thought for you before you go. Do you ever wonder if living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween?

Well that’s all folks, hope you had a fantastic Halloween!

  1. This cracked me up! I, too, can be a Halloween Scrooge. My kids are only in it for the candy, which only makes for a miserable meltdown. I’ll live vicariously through your fun pics!

  2. Looks like you had an awesome Halloween. I love cheesy jokes too so you can guarantee I am going to remember that. Oh my word, that outfit. That must have been so cool and kind of weird too. I’m mostly just impressed that you still had it around!

      Why thank you, I think everyone needs good, clean (really bad) jokes for every holiday and occassion. I have an arsenal of them on the ready for when my kids are having a grumpy day, because you just can’t hear something like that and not get a little goofy, right?

  3. You know, this was the year Des figured it out too! And he’s really figuring out Christmas. I’ve been waiting for that!
    haha, maybe nudists dress up for Halloween – as clothed people?
    The M&M shirts are awesome – they look like the retro logo. I dig that.
    I love that your oldest is wearing your clothes!

  4. Hi Jen, your jokes alone are pretty scary! Your whole family looks lovely and it’s nice to see your little one has now got hair (I was a touch worried for a while). I love the 7th photo down where she appears grinning in the background like a small apparition !

    I love the dress you wore that now fits your eldest. Time flies!

    1. Me too, although it’s unruly and all scraggly, but at least she has some! She is the penultimate photo bomber and appears in pretty much every picture. Strangers pictures as well are not complete, unless she is in them!
