Halloween Countdown: Our Family Pumpkins!

Good Saturday morning!

It is a busy day in the Duffy household as we gear up for our annual Halloween bash—about 20 people will be at our house tonight indulging in spooktacular treats such as Grandma's famous spider cookies, Dad's meatloaf hand, Mom's devilled eggs, and a pumpkin cheesecake with icing spiderwebs that I garnish with adorable little spiders. (Keeps the squeamish away!)

But last night, we carved our pumpkins, and I have to admit, we did a pretty good job. Dad's Grim Reaper is impressive! One of the pumpkins had gone rotten so Amelia and I took turns carving the spooky Jack-o-Lantern—you can't even tell, right?

But the star of the night might have been Mom's spider. She did a great job, don't you think?

Afterwards, she made pumpkin seeds, and Dad turned on The Nightmare Before Christmas. He was asleep before the end, but that's okay—we've all seen that movie a few times.

Take a look at this year's pumpkins below.

Mom's creeptastic spider!

Dad's awesome grim reaper!

Teamwork! The Creepy Jack my sister and I carved!

Gotta jet! A busy day of Halloween party prep. I'll share some pics from the big event tomorrow. Right now, I have to go help Mom hang spiders off the mantle. *shudder*

Have a spooktacular Saturday! #5sleeps
