Hey all! I stumbled upon this website yesterday when searching for pumpkin carving stencils...and I knew I had to buy them and join.

A lil about myself.
my name is Rebecca from NJ.
I'm 24.
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday EVER!
Unfortunately, I still live at home and my parents would not let my sisters and I decorate this year so I am quite bummed about that.
Although I did put up some small things in my room...

I look forward to meeting a lot of you and getting great ideas for when I get my own place and have my own parties!

Mom just doesn't want us to decorate for some reason.
She said she doesn't like the way my sisters and I do it, and would have to do everything over...total lie! I love being creative and crafty and my decorations and placement are great (IMHO)

My sisters and I already carved some pumpkins last night.
I did Freddy, My sisters did the Joker and David (from the Lost boys) and my dad did Michael myers...they look fabulous!

I think I am going to get a few more pumpkins and do some more!
Besides, I like the pumpkin seeds as well :)

OMG my parents would kill me if I did that...haha.
My dad would get a kick out of it...but mom would not be a happy camper and might not talk to me for a while...

Hmm...now that I think about it... :lol:

at least you get pumpkins...and if you dod it the night before while they sleep i highly doubt your mom is going to redo all the decorations on a friday :D....wait though before i star putting crazy ideas in your head i do not condone nocturnal activites for people under the age of 16.

Welcome, Blue! Nice to see yet another newcomer to the forums this year. Sorry to hear that you can't decorate like you want but at least you have your father on your side. Maybe after a few pumpkins carvings your Mom might cave in and let you decorate some more.

She caved in today and said I can decorate outside :)

After seeing the links for the fence post coffin on another thread.

I told her to watch out...we might be missing sections of our fence by the end of the month... :lol:

Well at least she caved a little......What I was going to say before I read that was:
"When Mom says NO and all else fails........ASK DAD!!!! :D "

And since Dad helped carve he might be able to talk some sense (or in our case here nonsense :lol: ) into her.
