So this week we went to a local farm and did some pumpkin picking. The kids really enjoyed it! While we were at the farm, we watched a pumpkin carving demonstration and got some great ideas for how to carve our own pumpkins.

My husband and I really enjoyed the corn maze they had at the farm. It was quite a challenge getting through it!

Speaking of corn mazes, I did a little research, and found a list of some really cool ones throughout the country. (Thanks to for the great info!)

  • The Farmstead Corn Maze & Pumpkin Festival, Meridian, ID
  • Great Vermont Corn Maze, Danville, VT
  • McCall’s Pumpkin Patch, Moriarty, NM
  • Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, Lancaster, PA
  • Frederica Mesa Farm Fall Festival, Avondale, CO
  • Scott’s Maze, Mt. Dora, FL
  • Sever’s Corn Maze & Fall Festival, Twin Cities, MN
  • Treinen Farm Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch, Lodi, WI
  • Cool Patch Pumpkins, Dixon, CA
  • Connors Farm, Danvers, MA

We also started decorating the house. I looked around for some new ideas for making the house extra creepy. Here are a few that we’re going to try (I found these on

  • Board Up Your Windows
  • Cheesecloth Lawn Ghosts
  • Front Door Flies – Attach fake plastic flies or other creepy insects around your front door handle.
  • Glowing Eyes – Cut the eye shapes out of the side of the cardboard tube, insert glow sticks into the tube, and duct tape up the ends.
  • “Hand”y Hallway – Find some hand props and mount them to your hallway walls for a spooky walk down the hall.

Let me know about any great corn mazes you’ve seen, or how you’re decorating your house.

Have a great day!
