I like Halloween as much as the next person.

I like to dress up (or rather, dress my kids up) and get free candy as much as they do.

The only thing I'm not that big on is decorating my house for Halloween. I used to go all out at one time with the fake spiderweb stretched all over the house, lights ...even yard decorations.


I just have a few trinkets here and there.

This year..something simple. Since I have the house (and not a small apartment) I really want to save all of the major decorating for Christmas.

I will always carve a pumpkin though.

Last year's pumpkin:

This year's pumpkin:

Yes.....It HAD to be a skull!!!

Yes...I used a template...what? I'm not an artist so I can't do one freehand but the kids love them anyway.
I'm considering doing a few more and putting them on display.

This looks alot better than 'mama kats bat'..which I kept looking and I didnt see a bat. It looked more like a hairbow.

Well thank you Jared. I did go and look for the "Bat" pic on Mama kat's page. After sometime...I found it and knew what you were talking about. It looked like a bow with a smile.

LOL I'm with Jared.

Who cares if you used a template? It still looks awesome.

Cool pumpkins!

See, now you're making me look bad.

You STILL have to be an artist to do that. They look amazing! I have never been good at carving.

Looks great! I did a Jack Skellington pumpkin one year. Sans template. It was really fun and came out quite well. Don't sell yourself short, I'm sure you could do one without the template. BUT, it's much easier to use them!

I'm too stupid and impatient to do that. I don't even know what mine looks like after I cut it.

But I still love candy.
