Bittersweet

ChickenFried and BigD had planted pumpkins behind the house a few years ago when ChickenFried was about 3 … but a little too late to have any for Halloween.  BigD didn’t want ChickenFried to be disappointed, so he bought a few pumpkins and placed them under the plants.  That night he took ChickenFried down to “pick the pumpkins.”  I had video recorded this with a commentary voice-over explaining what we had done.  

ChickenFried got an MP3/video player for Christmas, so I loaded a few of the home videos, including this one, on his player.  When he got to that part of the video I heard him say “awwwwww” in a sad little voice.  Then he busted out laughing.   He knew he had been tricked and was a little sad they weren’t really his pumpkins, but thought it was absolutely hilarious we had tricked him.
