We've been painting them too for a long time.. love your layout! I'll have to get one done with some old photos...we haven't painted this years though, they are sitting on the deck with the mums and other fall decor! It's just been so busy!

but it is a lot easier too then carving...less bugs, less mess....my girls don't like the "icky slimey stuff" on the inside! After halloween we toss them into our natural trash heap...branches, leaves, yard clippings....make sure they are cracked open.. and the squirrels and birds eat it all, including the seeds! I keep hoping one year at least a couple seeds will sprout in the spring!
edited to add a picture of my little one... and to say you can also paint TWO faces on each pumpkin! we usually do that.. Katie likes to do one side scarey and one side funny....
