...Happy Halloween! I love fall and Halloween time!!! Tomorrow will be my third year in my house and my first year to actually hand out candy!!! I've had to work the past two years so I'm super excited. Matt and I got full-size candy bars to distribute so we don't get tricked. Tomorrow, we're going to get a straw bale and he's going to dress up like a scarecrow and scare the older kids...we can't wait!!! Before the trick-or-treaters arrive, we had to do a little preparation:
First off, last night we went to the hospital to visit my dad and a little witch made a visit.
Here is Matt trying on the witch hat...he's sticking with the scarecrow thing!
Today, we decided to carve our pumpkin and Matt had a helper named Shadow.
Isn't he a good helper? He ate the pumpkins eyes!!! Yes, this dog will seriously eat ANYTHING!
Here's my family proudly displaying their work of art!

Of course we saved the seeds and are roasting them right now! I found this sweet website that gives a variety of recipes for the seeds. We tried the Halloweeny and they taste like cinnamon toast bread! So I hope everyone has a SPOOKTACULAR Halloween!!! Be safe and be careful!

I love pumpkin seeds, but never have the patience to clean them. Enjoy and happy Halloween!
