Halloween Countdown T-Minus 5 Days

Words can not express how we love Halloween aboard our boat. The Halloween love has been brewing and it's reaching a fever pitch as we prepare for our annual party for Z's little friends.

This weekend we went on the pumpkin hunt. Of course "the" pumpkin implies a single pumpkin. Oh no. That would be a lie. We harvested a gaggle of gourds. And though I love the classic, round, orange pumpkin, I have a weak spot for the ugly, gnarly, off color ones. Zach calls them zombie pumpkins - the grays and whites and ones covered with warts. The weirder the better, they all found a home with us.

I love decorating with pumpkins on the boat and for the party because they are they ultimate biodegradable decor. When we're done we either eat them, or bring them to the woods for the critters to devour.

We'll be sharing our Halloween fun all week! And if you have some fun traditions to share, let's hear them.

I like ugly pumpkins too. I generally have to settle for small ugly gourds because the kids want to carve everything in sight. :) I can't wait to see what you guys are up to this week!

We love pumpkins here too! We have a slew of pumpkins and gourds decorating our front porch. :)

pumpkins and gourds are great decorations! We grow them in the garden and our pumpkins turn out far less than perfect...which we love!

Love all of these Halloween posts! We are big Halloween nuts, too. Looks like you have the makings for a great party. Have fun!

I recently came across your blog and just wanted to let you know I absolutely love it!

BTW--that photo of the 3 pumpkins with the boats in the background is incredible.
