Halloween Without the Ick

I used to love Halloween.  Especially when my kids were little.  I loved dressing them up and making their costumes, taking them through the neighborhood and then finally, weeks later, insisting they throw all that disgusting old candy out before their teeth rot and ants invade…….ahhh memories.

Anyway, I’ve come to loath Halloween the last few years because frankly, it’s gotten DISGUSTING!  Dead zombies with maggots and severed limbs and uggg…you get the point.  I just don’t get it.  I don’t like horror movies either, so it makes sense.

The one thing I do like however is PUMPKINS!!  How can you not?  If you don’t like pumpkins, you’re dead inside.   I love pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin spice and pumpkin seeds.  This year, I’m going to really do some fun things with pumpkins and thanks to Pinterest, the ideas are flowing!

Here’s some of my favorite pumpkin decorations that I can’t wait to do!
