We're already halfway through October! We thought it would be fun to look back on the day the Great Pumpkin paid us a visit at our Minneapolis townhome. We hope you enjoy the flashback!
KATIE: Waffles, there's nothing great about that. It's a plastic pumpkin.
WAFFLES: But it's HUGE, Boss.
WAFFLES: And magical.
KATIE: Well if it can make you disappear, it must have some kind of magical powers.
KATIE: Waffles? Where'd you go? Waffles?
KATIE: Well who'd have ever thought that Halloween would be my new favorite holiday?

A few Octobers ago, when Glogirly came home with the big plastic pumpkin, it took Waffles all of 10 seconds to dive inside and hunker down. Katie has never been a fan of enclosed spaces, especially enclosed spaces inside giant orange plastic pumpkins. But when Waffles looked like he'd never come out, she became very curious. We're certain she had no plans on joining him, but more likely was peering over the edge hoping for a little of that Great Pumpkin disappearing magic.
Eventually, the treats came out and then it turned into a big free-for-all.
WAFFLES: Hey Boss! I got a catnip Greenie! What'd you get? Did you get something good?
KATIE: Freeze-dried chicken.
WAFFLES: We should totally trade.
KATIE: In your dreams, Waffles. That's like trading a Reeses for a measly circus peanut.
