Happy Halloween!

Halloween is here and I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren on this holiday! Today I carved pumpkins with my grandchildren, Mansi and Raghav. We do this every year and it’s become our tradition! Mansi, my 8 year old granddaughter, wanted to carve the pumpkin herself using a knife, but I, of course, did not let her handle the carving knife! She was a little upset about that! The pumpkins turned out great. We saved the pumpkin seeds and plan to wash them and roast them in the oven. Mansi reminded me that next year we have to carve another pumpkin for her 9 month old cousin (the newest grandchild of mine!) Rhea.

Keeping with tradition, the kids will go trick or treating with their Chacha (Uncle), Chachi (Aunt), and cousin sister Rhea. Alex and I will stay home to pass out candy to the kids. Maybe I will bake some Halloween cookies for the kids to enjoy.

My elder son and daughter-in-law are back from their short trip to India. The house is so quiet! I got used to the sounds of the kids, especially Raghav, who used to love to wake me up in the mornings in his adorable way! I can’t wait until Rhea spends the night with us! She is very cute and extremely active. In fact, her boundless energy reminds me of my younger son (her father). He always kept me on my toes and so does she!

I am very blessed that my children and their families live close by to me. I get to spend a lot of time with them and enjoy my grandchildren growing up!

I will be coming up with some menu ideas for the upcoming holidays.

Until then…Happy Halloween!

    1. Halloween. There are lots of different kits, but all of them have a pumpkin saw in them that is very child safe. They tend to run about $4 and solve the problem of giving a razor sharp knife to an 8yr old

  3. Manjula, you can buy “pumpkin carving” kits at most grocery stores around Halloween. There are lots of different kits, but all of them have a pumpkin saw in them that is very child safe. They tend to run about $4 and solve the problem of giving a razor sharp knife to an 8yr old.
