Kelsey is a little bit timid about being around pumpkins. I did try putting peanut butter on them...she licked them a little bit and then backed away. So, I just left them out and ignored them. She did get brave and sniff them briefly.
I did manage to get a few pics this year where she didn't look completely freaked out.
I tried putting the pumpkins outside for pics and she did a little better this way.
Mom, if you put a Zuke's on it I might like it a little bit more.
I had wanted to have Kelsey dress up as a pumpkin in past years (Pumpkin was one of her nicknames before I came up with her name), but have been frustrated with the costume sizing. The smalls are way too short and the mediums are way too baggy. So, I gave in and got her the small this year.
Success! We have a picture of Kelsey in her costume with a real pumpkin (and she doesn't look freaked out-but she still isn't convinced that pumpkins are okay). She was so adorable in her little hat and was so good about keeping it on for pictures, although she takes it off when she thinks we are done.
These are the pumpkins Kelsey and I carved...a few days after Halloween (I was a little under the weather). We only had 9 munchkins come by this year...4 were babies/toddlers and 5 were under 7 years old...so they were all really sweet. The little ones really loved seeing Kelsey all dressed up and she wasn't as scared this year.
