Turtle loves Jack Skellington. He sleeps with his stuffed Pumpkin King every night; that’s how much he loves that thing. Out of all the cutesy stuffed Disneyana on that huge display they have in every Disney store, I let Turtle choose whatever one he wanted and the 4 year old (at the time) chose a skeleton. Uhmkay. I was thinking more Mickey Mouse but alright; we’ll go with it.
Anyway, because he loves that movie I wanted to surprise him with a Jack Skellington lunch.
Cream cheese and nori make Jack’s face on wheat with strawberry jam. I told Turtle to take Jack’s face off when he was ready to eat. A Jello jiggler bat, goldfish, teriyaki tofu gravestones, and the scariest thing in the box: SpongeBob berry applesauce.
We carved our pumpkins today too. Of course one of them HAD to be Jack.
If you look very closely in the first pumpkin pic you can see this one. I just didn’t have the right tools to make the inner carving thin enough but it looks ok in person.
Turtle also made a Captain Daddy jack o’lantern.
We went to the Boo at the Zoo event at the Maryland Zoo today. Guess how many animals we saw.
Zero. Well one really, but it was on the way out and it was a skunk. Very cute though. They were letting the kids check him out. He’d been de-whatever-they-call-it so he couldn’t spray. We had a great time there today. Turtle was in the costume contest. He didn’t win, but he was happy to get a coupon for a happy meal at McD’s (:-x), go trick-or-treating an extra day, and wear his costume another day.
