I think I did a post on this last year about The Pumpkin House. Which you can read about it Here!
The pumpkin house was on the Today Show this morning & on Ellen last year. Ric Griffith (The now Mayor of my home town) has done this since I was little. This year I believe he's having 3,000 pumpkins!! It's always been a tradition since I was little to go trick or treating then go see the pumpkin house. Ric's youngest daughter & I went all through school together. In grade school the entire school would walk over & each carve our own pumpkin to display. He always has lots & lots of volunteers. It's such a big thing around here & growing more & more every year! Now the traditions are a little different. Matt's mom loves to see the kids dress up. Also loves showing them off to her neighbors (LOL!!) Although it's a little drive for us we always take the kids up there for trick or treating. It's a pretty hectic day for us. We first stop by my moms house,then my grandma's & head up to My MIL's. We usually go to the Pumpkin House the day after trick or treating here. Which is usually a little less packed. People come all over to see it every year! Matt has been gone (Iraq) the last 2 years at this time so this year is special. I think we'll pack up & see the pumpkins on his night off this week. I'm really looking forward to that. A tradition I did as a child that now my kids are doing. My how time flies!!!
