Nervous Jack

We carved our pumpkin on Saturday with the Donahoos and had a lovely time. This year we decided to make our pumpkin look nervous because he will sit on the front porch with our headless scarecrow. He's not headless on purpose (I don't like to do VERY scary on Halloween, just "deliciously" scary), I just haven't given him a head yet. I'll take any recommendations for a scarecrow head because I'm having a hard time.
The children love to help Daddy with this tradition! And I love roasted pumpkin seeds. Just rinse them, let them dry a bit (on a paper towel on the counter), throw them on a cookie sheet with some olive oil and garlic salt, back them for about 10-ish minutes (or until they smell done) in a 350 degree oven, and, Voila!, you've got a great, salty snack.

As I ate about half of the pumpkin seeds after inviting myself (and my family) into the Hills' house just as they were coming out of the oven (the seeds, not the Hills), I can attest to the yumminess of aforementioned pumpkins seeds
