Halloween Ideas

Also, the cliche Halloween party where you and your counterpart rack your brains trying to come up with creative costume ideas never makes for a pleasant evening.

Last year, however, I came up with a great idea.  I took my girlfriend to a local pumpkin patch/farm where we enjoyed a relaxing day “pumpkin pickin”. While there, we carved the cutest jack-o-lantern with big hearts for eyes and large lips (think Rolling Stones) using paper stencils that I prepared beforehand.

The stencils were really easy to make. I just traced them on paper. She really loved the fact that I had planned out the stencil idea before hand, and my efforts were rewarded with a big kiss.

Then, when it got a little darker outside we went on a romantic hayride that stopped along the way for a marshmallow roast. Who knew snuggling in the hay was as much fun as a roll in the hay? And, to be able to enjoy some s’mores with your significant other really is an experience to be cherished.

Afterwards, we enjoyed getting lost in a corn maze where we occasionally snuck in a kiss or two as we hid in the stalks.  Finally, I brought along a couple of silly masks that we later donned and stopped by our friends for some trick-or-treating.  We shared our candy just like little kids when we got home.  It was a return to childhood almost.  It really was a great Halloween.
