You just can't have Halloween without carved pumpkins.
This year, my kids conned me into carving fancy pumpkins. Forget about Jack and his grinning pumpkin face... Annelie wanted a silly, spooky monster and Gracie wanted a haunted house.
Gracie thought the pumpkin guts were absolutely revolting and couldn't wait to wash her hands.
Annelie thought the pumpkin guts were fantastic and couldn't slime her hands enough.
A carved pumpkin on a step isn't anything special on its own. But add in the darkness and a candle...
And of course, the best part of a pumpkin...
Roasted, salted pumpkin seeds!
Happy Halloween, folks!
