For Halloween my mom tried out a new decoration during trick-or-treat time. It was toilet paper rolls with eyes cut out (and the occasional mouth) with a glow stick inside. These were tucked into the bushes and we so much fun!
I have a couple of bins of pumpkin decorations – some are specific to Halloween and some can stick around through Thanksgiving. These witchy frogs are usually on the mantle but this year I decided to put them on my leaf-candle-plates as though they were on lily pads. I really liked it! They’ll be going back to this spot next year.
Each year my mom and I carve multiple pumpkins. Our ambitions sometimes exceed our skill – and we generally use patterns from the easily available books. But this year I decided to make my own and carve a pumpkin for my favorite team. Risky business because most people around where we are do not root for the Broncos. In fact, one kid was almost denied candy for insulting my pumpkin (by my sister, who joined in the fun this year). He decided he liked the pumpkin.
