I have not written a Manic Monday post in awhile I think. Basically because they have not been all that manic. With the 2 older kids both in school on Mondays, life is much easier with one little toddler. At least when she's not trying to re-arrange the file cabinet drawers, climb into the fish tank, or color my yellow couch with a black Sharpie. All true events my friends!
However today, being a holiday - specifically one which follows 2 birthday parties on the weekend -which although fun, lots of fun: left me no time to carve pumpkins. 3 to be exact. Oh, and the one I am supposed to paint yellow to look like a Pokemon.
And my children are not content to have just some eyes and a scary mouth. Nay, Nay. The think my real name is Martha. Here are previous years pumpkins:

Left Brain cannot be "tricked" into such wearisome art:
And of course, we don't forget the treat. Why save such tasty fare for just Christmas?

So what challenging face will I attempt to carve today? Or, sorry -- 3 challenging faces since no child wants to be left out of the pumpkin carving
Have a happy and safe Trick or Treating Adventure!
