Costumes I pretty much had made in advance, but pumpkin decorating was something we mostly did “on the day.” Once we carve them, they start to decompose, so we made it our tradition to care on Halloween. So many wonderful moments. If someone else would do the digging out, I would carve and decorate pumpkins all day 🙂

I’ve never heard of anyone waiting until the day of Halloween to carve pumpkins, Seana. I love that!

Brittni

Such cute ideas, even if they are last minute! Sometimes that’s just the way the cookie crumbles! Thanks for sharing…I may just have to give a few of these a try with my kiddos!

We actually did the Knit Pumpkin project couple days ago. It turned out really great.
