Our house isn't huge into Halloween, mostly because we don't do junky candy, but we DO love costumes. And high quality organic chocolate. Usually our entire family dresses up as some sort of theme. One year was the Duck Dynasty crew. The year before was Wizard of Oz. And before that was my favorite so far - Pirates of the Caribbean. Our first year doing an ensemble was Star Wars. And most recently was the Peanuts Gang. I'm trying to talk them into Harry Potter, Back to the Future, Minions, or Hunger Games for this year!

Well slap me thrice and hand me to my mama!

We also love carving pumpkins! Well, ok, not really. The carving part kind of stinks actually. But the end result is worth it. We get a lot of ideas from Pinterest, and I have a bunch of boards with both carving ideas as well as ensemble costume ideas, so if you are interested, keep reading! Without further ado, here are a few of our favorite carved pumpkins from over the years.
