What is a Minion’s favorite Halloween treat? A Banana!




We bought a fat orange pumpkin
The plumpest sort they sell.
We neatly scooped the inside out
And only left the shell.
We carved a funny funny-face
Of silly shape and size,
A pointy nose, a jagged mouth
And two enormous eyes.
We set it in a window
And we put a candle in,
Then lit it up for all to see
Our jack-o’lantern grin.

daddy&daughter concentrating on the messy, messy, messy, sweet!

Is that Minion looking for a banana from us?

Pumpkin pumpkin round and fat.
Turned into a jack-o’Lantern
Just like that!

daddy&daughter’s First Jack-O-Lantern!

hugs n’ blessings to all those creating precious memories together

scooping through the messy, messy, messy, sweet !

“For we are God’s masterpiece.

He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,

so we can do the good things

He planned for us long ago.”

Ephesians 2:10
