Boo! Happy Halloween!

Around my house, we like to carve pumpkins for Halloween. We also hand out full size chocolate bars, because that's how we roll around here. And for a couple years, we got crazy with decorations, but not so much anymore.  Now it's pretty much just our pumpkins announcing that we are open for some trick-or-treating.  Sometimes we use stencils, sometimes we make our own stencils, and sometimes we just freehand it and see what happens!  I want to share some of our pumpkin works of art over the last few years.

My faves are the "uncarved" jack-o-lantern and the nephews. Which one is your favourite? Are there any pumpkins you have carved that you are particularly proud of? Have a safe and Happy Halloween everyone!!
