Pumpkin Decorating

Decorating pumpkins is a must-do annual Halloween activity.

Mike's favorite pumpkins come from the pumpkin patch, large and heavy and full of their own character, ready for carving. The boys dig in, literally. I am happy to sit and watch. No thank you to touching the pumpkin guts!

Here's this year's jack-o-lantern creations.

Legos are a favorite toy here, so it was only natural to make a Lego pumpkin.

This one was nicknamed "Skeleton Pumpkin" by our boys.

My favorite pumpkin decorating involves cream cheese frosting, and pumpkin smells wafting from the oven. Find the recipe here.

The boys were eager to help with the decorating.

Then, they lost interest and Mike joined the decorating fun as well.

Of course, everyone was willing to join in the eating.

Pumpkins will always be an integral part of our Halloween, whether carved or eaten. We love them both.
