Did anyone put up Halloween decorations? Or brought pumpkins? Tell us what have you done to your house or apartment?

Today, I brought 3 pumpkins (all three for 10 bucks!)*on the way to work* and straws for my front yard, I'm going shopping tomorrow and get some Halloween decorations for my windows and front door. ;)

I have bought 3 sorts of mini-candies (Snickers, 3 Musketeers, and Amazing M&M bars) for work tommorrow as a special treat for my department. :) I just put it in a jack-o-lantern bowl and will set it out in the morning. ;)
As for Halloween night, I don't know yet, but I am thinking of getting out my VHS copy of "Psycho". :) It's just another day for me, ya know. :)

always go to pumpkin patch or apple orchard whenever its nice out. Take some good pictures of kids with pumkins.

Always buy pumpkin 2 week before halloween, and will start crave them 2 or 3 days before halloween.

Take kids to haunted hayride, its fun!

(decorte, i don't but have jack o' latern with light in it)

I haven't done anything yet. I probably won't do anything except get involved with other groups with their Halloween events. :)

:angel: I don't have too much in the way of decorations. I did buy some bear statues dressed up as witches, and my dad went to his friend's farm and bought Tiger a pumpkin. I am going to try and go this weekend to buy more decorations. The candy I will get before Halloween, as I am afraid I will end up eating them myself. :lol:

I rather to have poreclain things to keep for every years than have real pumpkins. I would like very much to have real pumpkins but I'm only one in family who like to eat pumpkins... :( Why should I eat all of them? My children want to have real pumpkins to decorate at our garden with candles. I told them who should eat pumpkins after finish done with pumpkins to decorate at our garden? They replied: "Of course You". I told them that I can't eat ALL of 2 pumpkins, it would be good if they helps me to eat pumpkins together like soup, cakes, etc. They said No Way. I told them again that should we throw vegetable away to rubbish bin after finish with decorate pumpkins? They said again... No Way and waste... (We did that at 2 years ago... awful... I has to eat all the pumpkins alone for all the week... :barf: because I don't like waste if I threw it away to rubbish bin.)

I started looking around for Halloween stuff this week.. so I'm sure I'll have decorations up soon! I'm going to get 3 Pumpkins.. one medium for me, 1 small for my daughter and a large one for my honey.. so we can each carve our own pumpkins.. I love carving!

We started making autumn dishes such as curried pumpkin soup, cauliflower and potato puree soup flavoured with coriander and garan marsala, etc... It's so nice to take comfort in warm dishes as the days are winding shorter and colder.

We probably will just make jack o lanterns, that's it. Local Walmart sells decent sized ones for 2$ a piece. Smith's sells them for 15 cents per pound. We'll investigate which is a good price and get some soon.
