Today we started our Halloween preparations. That included Costume making and pumpkin carving. I apologize that your program will have to be suspended, due to the Astros going into extra innings. Ok, I’m back. So, I am going as a vending machine for Halloween. I knew that it was going to take a long time to make, but I must admit, it took me longer than I had imagined, and by the end of the day, I wasn’t even half way done. All I had done was cut and spray painted the cardboard! Today, right after homeschooling, I went outside and started working on it again, I cut an painted a few more pieces of cardboard, taped some paper on cardboard, made duct tape numbers, and finally put some pieces of cardboard together. after about three hours of work, I made some serious progress. Now all I have to do is cut some holes for various body parts, put candy in the front, and tape a few more pieces of cardboard, and then I’ll have a vending machine!
as I clearly stated in the beginning of the first paragraph, we also carved pumpkins. I was never a huge fan of carving pumpkins, in fact it was just two years ago that I successfully carved a pumpkin by myself. This year was harder than most years, because I was constantly distracted by the Astros game, but I pulled through and carved a pumpkin!
