Our plan was to make a Vampire Bat Jack O Lantern. BOOM.
Alex sketched it all out on paper first and was really excited.
Me, being a good mom took more of a support role and let him carve it by himself.....
Well... it wasn't looking quite like the vision in his head and he got disinterested when it started to look like a big hole and not a cool vampire bat.
Cause once you make a cut on a pumpkin there's no taking that back!
THat's when I got creative. I had an **IDEA**
Alex is a lego nut. There is not a room in this house untouched by his obsession. So I told him "Let's turn it in to a monster cave. You build a lego house for this and I will make some little bats we can hang from the ceiling we'll fix it up and make it look real cool."
His eyes lit up at the prospect of turning this into a lego project! Off he flew to make a lego house!
He was so proud of our creation by the time we were done.
I even carved a little hole in the back and stuck a light through so you could see in the cave.
We ended up getting the award of "Most Magical" pumpkin.
His details on the house were awesome. He made a door, put a spider and web, a snake head and mismatched the Lego's so the house would look creepy and old.
What an awesome kid.
