I can't believe there are 6 of these movies now. Some of the songs for these movies are great! I would like properly pay tribute to this woefully bad franchise by carving a pumpkin and including songs from the soundtracks on my display list.

I was really burned out after last Halloween. I carved about 60 pumpkins and appeared in 3 major events in the area. I did make 3 large paper mache pumpkins this year, but I didn't start feeling the Halloween vibe until yesterday. I'm woefully behind this year, but I think the break will be good. I ...

I love your home decor and your carvings. And great job on the neep lantern. They are my new favorite tradition. I love the smell of them when they are burned.

I am literally going to set up a wall of flaming jack o' lanterns between me and the trick or treaters and then toss candy over the wall of flames.

I can get pumpkins to last a week or more by soaking them in a solution of water and bleach every couple of days. The only downside is that it turns the inside of the pumpkin white. I use 2 capfuls of bleach for every 5 gallons of water.

I just wanted to thank Lala for the generous gift box she put together. The entire family found something they really enjoyed. My favorite was the two-headed skeleton. My kids especially loved the candy and we all enjoyed the random body parts. It was thoughtful and fun! It was also nice to hear fro...

I'm glad you are starting to settle down after a turbulent few months. I'm sure you'll do great in your new role. You were obviously the best person for it. Congrats on successfully raising a kid. Having two smaller ones, I know it's not easy. Time to celebrate.

Welcome back,

Yeah...I can attest to pumpkin carving being a great distraction. My entire display was borne from a job loss a couple of years ago. I decided to do something for myself instead of others. It's led to a lot of happiness being spread around.

Big bump for a stingy jack pattern. Perhaps with the devil in a tree (with a marked crucifix) and jack laughing at him. I think this pattern would represent classic Halloween and stand the test of time.

This would be an awesome pattern...but I'm not sure how many people under 50 would get it.
