We decided to take things slow this year...carve one night and light the next. The kids enjoyed it...and it made stretching the pumpkin activities to 2 nights easier.
When it came time to find some tea lights for the pumpkins, I realized we were out! So, the 2nd best option.....Birthday candles!!! They worked perfectly. I lit a candle, dripped some hot wax in the bottom of the pumpkins and then stuck the birthday candle in the hot wax and SUCCESS!!
I was surprised at how much they illuminated.
Leia climbs into the chairs on the front porch at any chance she can get. She's my little daredevil. She was a bit hasty a few days ago, and toppled out of the chair :( But she's learning.
