Our story

My family—wife Gina, daughters Zoe and
Lucy—and I are big fans of Halloween.
We love decorating the house so much
that my neighbors have taken to calling
me the Clark Griswold of Halloween. But
here’s the story: While we put in effort,
we don’t have much free time to
transform the house for All Hallow’s Eve.
What family does? As an artist and a dad,
I’ve come up with a few simple steps to
make our place a destination for trick-ortreaters and, in the process, create some
outstanding memories for my family.

Finding gourds



10 Making Merry

Cooking and crafting for the holidays.

When I go to the pumpkin patch with my
family, I don’t just look for the perfect,
most orange pumpkin. I look for
pumpkins and gourds that already have
personality. I encourage my girls to look
at some of the oddly shaped gourds and
ask them what kind of character they see.
Is there a sad, scary, or happy face there?
Don’t choose the pumpkins, let the
pumpkins choose you!
