Halloween has never been my most favorite holiday...I'm fairly certain my mother and sister scarred me deeply when I was little with their creepy soundtracks of dragging chains and screaming that started on October 1 and played steadily until November 1. Our house was known to feature a graveyard of foam headstones with friends' names, skeletons leaping out of closets that literally sent children running into the woods, and ghostly decorations that caused the Jehovah's Witnesses down the road to finally give up on us.
Maybe because I grew up in such a creepy crawly-obsessed family, I have always been more partial to "cute" Halloween decorations. Like smiling pumpkin cookies and balloon ghosts rather than blood-stained candlesticks and bowls of eyeballs.
To celebrate my kind of Halloween, I've complied some of my favorite CUTE pumpkin carving ideas from this year. HAPPY Halloween!!
