Preparing for Halloween

We've had this little skeleton body for a while. Last year, we got an oversized pumpkin and he just kinda looked odd.
Then, we got two small pumpkins that the kids decorated and then it was a two-headed skeleton pumpkin. Kids didn't care though. They were proud of their work!
This year, however, I decided that I was tired of this poor little guy not being used for his full potential and I warned the kids that Mom's pumpkin was going to be his head this year. Not theirs. I think I might have hurt their feelings, but I don't care....Mr. Skeleton looks so great!
The white pumpkins were the rage this year and I thought maybe I should just pay $2 extra and get it. And I'm glad I did. No orange pumpkins heeerre! 
I was inspired by the movie Nightmare Before Christmas and my "Anything Skullified" Pinterest board
I grabbed my trusty acrylics and paintbrushes and got to work. It was pretty fun!
Plus, you know how much more awesome this little guy is? I can use him for Dia de los Muertos and I am ever so excited about that....
Now, when they boys walk to the front door, they don't fight about whose pumpkin get to be the head.
This momma reigns on Halloween!
