Haunting Favorites

Hi Everyone~ I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween. My family and some friends had a wonderfully frightful evening. It was the first time my daughter wanted to "really" trick or treat and that added to the fun. It was a night filled with fun, laughter,haunts and LOTS OF YUMMY CANDY. Here are some of my  favorites from the past couple of  days.

Can you see this huge web??? It is hard to see, but it was a work of art. The spider was not in it at the time:) Like the webs, not so much love for the spider though.

A before shot. Loving the beach towel under it so we don't get pumpkin everywhere. Not pretty, but it does the job.

And we have seeds..... they need a cleaning
Cleaning the seeds. Pumpkin seeds are so yummy. Add some olive oil and sea salt, put them in the oven and they are perfect.
The final results... above is "Boofus ". This is Avery's pumpkin. He lost his nose, but I think he's cuter this way. Below is Blake's pumpkin. It is a monster carrying a woman. We like to think he is a "friendly" monster and is saving the damsel in distress.

Below is a picture of "Mummy Hot Dogs". My friend Melissa made these. The picture is not nearly as cute as they were. They were a hit.

My two little goblins
And no Halloween is complete without Almond Joys. They are the best thing ever!! Thanks goodness my kids don't like them so I get them all. We ONLY got 5 this year. There are only 4 in the picture because I ate the other one.

Thanks for letting me share a little piece of me with all of you
