Front Porch Decor

Each and every year—that's 18 years of parenthood—after Halloween, Randy and I boldly declare:

"THIS YEAR we are going to throw the pumpkins away before they rot!"



There's always next year.

And I must say, we should start carving our pumpkins in September so that they develop this amazingly creepy look by Halloween.

  1. LOL! We put ours in the backyard near the compost pile to watch it biodegrade.

    On the brightside, the cat legitamatly has fur. :)

  10. I love how creepy they look. They compost even better, by spring you'll see just a lacy outline.

  11. Very creepy! I like Lisa's idea of the compost pile. I remember reading about a pumpkin burial, too. Things to consider for next year. ;)
