monster mash

halloween will soon be upon us, and cory and i have definitely been getting in the spirit around here with a little decorating and pumpkin carving.  we are ready and all stocked up with a bowl full of candy for the little trick-or-treaters (unless i eat it all before thursday, not kidding).
our pumpkins turned out pretty well this year if i do say so myself... cory went with a scary evil pumpkin, while i went with a more goofy, lighthearted approach (inspired by some people i saw at the state fair last week, except my pumpkin has more teeth, haha)!  all carved free handed, of course... we don't need no stinking stencils!
and one of the best things about pumpkin carving... roasted pumpkin seeds!  my secret ingredient is a pinch of chili powder in addition to the salt and pepper (it gives them a little extra kick)!

happy halloween!
