Today I ordered 30 pumpkins.

Yup, it has leapt up on us this year, and we are a little surprised about it all, but the Halloween party is upon us and we are NOWHERE near as organised as we should be....

I have ordered the pumpkins anyway, and I did manage to purchase a derelict house we can use for the venue.  Should be quite spooky, even if they do have to go to the apartment to pee.

Bwah hah hah hah hah!!!

That's a lot of pumpkins. Do share some photos with what you do with them.

Brilliant. We used to do Halloween parties with the Martins when the kids were small , and one time the adults jumped out going 'boo' and scared Erin into bursting into tears. Renditions of the Mad Professor's Daughter by Allan Ahlberg with torch works well too (though not with non english speakers probably)

Sounds like fun. I suppose you'll eventually OD on pumpkin pie, though, so be careful.

Any party that doesn't have a bathroom on site sounds pretty scary to me!

"I did manage to purchase a derelict house"!? ROTFLMAO!!

Please don't tell me that you are going to have to carve 30 jack-o-lanterns for this shindig....

Nelson's body parts! Great game (or somebody suitably Spanish) We made poo pudding out of chocolate Swiss rolls and Angel delight. The kids refused to eat. Ahh Good times! I'm going to the opera this Halloween - how things change!

Beth, should be a good one! I hope.

Bodhi, each kid carves one and then takes them home. We carve two bigger ones before they get there.

Helen, poor Erin, I gather she has since recovered!

ElP, most of the pumpkins go to new homes!

JG, ahhh, they're young....it's only 2 hours...

Hula, for the local kids it is becoming quite the tradition!

Beth, I thought it was pretty good planning on my part. I will do the bulk of the carving on the thirty odd pumpkins, it is a little hectic.

Boo, poo pudding sounds EXCELLENT!
