Ds carved his pumpkin, it's 25lbs! Here's a picture of this years (a smurf) and last years (a cat).

Have you decorated for Autumn yet, inside or outside of your house?

 Haven't done much here but ds wants to make a scarecrow after we rake the leaves. Will have to look for some old clothes of dh's to use.

I can only carve a face and even then it's not a great pumpkin face lol.

Sounds like you got some things done before winter sets in!

Wow he has done a great job. I really only had the idea of a face in my head. Here the pumpkins are really hard so not planning on carving any. Lol.

Just wondering why you take down the screen door? One of ours broke and I am soooo missing it. Got to replace it soon.

Ok now I get it. Makes sense to put it away for the winter. We have fixed screen doors on the back doors but the one I use the most is broken. I mean the door itself is fine but the lock is broken so if it closes it is locked for good. I have it propped open so this does not happen while I decide if I am going to replace it with another screen door or pay the extra to get a really strong one that supposedly people can't break in. Thinking with no longer a dog that might be a better option so I can have a breeze coming in during summer...but ouch on the price...so still deciding.

Carving pumpkins are pretty hard here also, need to use a very large knife to just cut the top off so you can clean out the inside. When the kids were young I always bought them small pumpkins to paint and dad carved the big one. He'd let them help clean out the inside and we'd save the seeds to roast.

Oh roasting the seeds. That makes sense I was wondering what happened to all the gunk you cleaned out. Lol
