Movie Night - Spookley the Square Pumpkin

This is our last Halloween movie night!  We had DVR'd Spookley the Square Pumpkin when it aired on the Disney Channel.  It is such a cute movie!  Ashlyn loved it and it let us talk about how you shouldn't treat someone badly because they are different from you.  Fun with a lesson built in... love it!  Anyway, we did a bunch of pumpkin related things, which would make these ideas great for The Nightmare Before Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown as well.  Here's what we did.

All pumpkin themed, of course!  Dinner was a pumpkin shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's.

We had pumpkin pie smoothies

and mini pumpkin pies for dessert.

Since our house is all decorated for Halloween anyway, we didn't worry about that.  We had a couple of fun things to do, though.  First, before dinner, we went around to our neighbors and handed out some of the mini pumpkin pies as well as some dog treats since many of our neighbors have a dog.  I punched holes in the paper plates and ran some ribbon through it to dress them up a bit.

We also carved a pumpkin.  Ashlyn helped clean it out.  She kept saying how gross it was, but she had a lot of fun doing it.  Aaron tried to do a T.A.R.D.I.S. carving I found a template for, but it didn't quite work out, so here's Ashlyn's pirate pumpkin that she did last week.

Well, that's the last of our Halloween movie nights for this year!  We will probably only have one movie night in November, but I'll spend that time getting really great ideas ready for our month of Christmas movie nights in December!  Send your requests in now!
