Happy Halloween!

Last week a little girl and her mom rang our doorbell; she was selling chocolates.

Naturally, hubby succumbed (okay, I would have too if I had answered the door).

After paying, her mother asked "So, are you doing a pumpkin again this year?"

I had to laugh. I guess the neighborhood has come to expect my annual carved decoration. Each year I do at least one real pumpkin, carved and lit up on our porch to greet young Trick or Treaters. This year is no different.

Yep, Indy is all set:

It looks better lit up

I seem to have also passed on the tradition too.... daughter came by last night and we carved one each.

In past years, I have also done foam pumpkins that can be re-used year after year. Like this pair of Jacks:


Or Dracula

I have decorated with both vintage and not-so-vintage Halloween items around the house:

So we're all set. We'll put in a pizza, sit down at our "Nightmare" adorned table, throw on a spooky movie and wait for the kiddos to arrive.


  1. Love your pumpkins and decorations! I should get some of the fake one and carve them. I only bought 2 last year to decorate but didn't carve.

  2. Love your pumpkins! Happy Halloween to you, too!
