MISCHIEF MANAGED 🎃✨
This carving of #Hogwarts is the largest faux pumpkin I’ve ever carved at 2’ tall and is one of the most detailed. Only took something like 12 hours lol. I’ll post some detail shots soon 🎃

It was stressful, scary, nerve wracking and joyous day.
I sat in a doctor’s office for 8 hours with my 7 year old son who has a severe peanut allergy and watched him drink Kool Aid laced with - you guessed it, peanuts.
Immunotherapy is kinda new, takes 6ish months and is scarier than any Halloween monster for this mommy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every day we drink the Kool Aid, every week the peanut protein gets a bit stronger and at the end he will no longer be allergic to peanuts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was so proud of how brave he was and how excited he is to be able to eat/travel/do anything he wants. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We made it through the first day without a single hive. I had 4 epi-pins at the ready just in case. It’s going to get harder before it gets easier but man I will be glad to have that worry off my mind.
Oh and support the #tealpumpkinproject this Halloween, not every kid can do immunotherapy. I’ll always have allergy free things at my house for trick-or-treaters and always whip up new DIY teal pumpkins. These guys are over on the @diynetwork
