A Haunting We will Go...

So once again much fun was had on Halloween this year.
There was the carving of the pumpkin by our in house master pumpkin carver...teen boys are always SO thrilled to have their picture taken...

The Traditional dinner of brains and bloody worms...

accompanied of course with toasted pumpkin seeds...

We get an heirloom pumpkin from a local farmer every year so we can eat the yummy insides....
by the way, have you noticed that all canned pumpkin comes in 15oz. cans now a days?And all my old recipes that call for a can mean a 16oz can so I save the extra cooked pumpkin in frozen 1oz. packages...
This is a huge pot but of course it cooks down a lot!

Living on a dead end street means we don't get many trick-or-treaters but we decorate the place up and have a grand old time visiting with the neighbors. I hope your Halloween was loads of fun too!


  1. I am tagging other FaeTeam members. If you want to play see my blog:


  2. You guys seem to have so-o-o-o much fun at Halloween, with lots of buildup etc. We just don't celebrate it at all here. It's just another day that passes by without notice. Your son did a great job on that pumpkin, BTW.

  3. Impressive pumpkin carving!
    Happy Halloween!

  4. great job on the wolf carving :)

    I'm glad you guys had such a great Halloween!

  5. Great picture! Looks like you guys had a great time. I never get trick or treaters either, so I spent the evening down the street.

    Mmmmm pumpkin seeds!

  6. Fab mantel arrangement!
    We had a grand old time celebrating Samhain - we did our little sunset ritual before the guests arrived and the boys enjoyed the lighting of the candles (pyros...), We had a little party so the kids got to go trick or treating with other kids, and we got to hang out with other grown ups, so a good time was had by all!
    Excellent wolf - the Beast has outdone himself - but would it kill him to smile??? Ack, teens!

  7. I Love pumpkin posts! Hey. Great job on that article for the Storque. You really did a fantastic job.

  8. Your son is a great artist, just like his Mom. He may not be smiling but at least he agreed to being posted on your blog, I wish mine would! :)

  9. is that a fairytale pumpkin? The light orange ones?

  10. Yes! Of course, since I'm named for Cinderella, I'd have to have a fairytale pumpkin!

  11. The master pumpkin carver did an amazing job!
