With October right around the corner and the cold breezes picking up, it's time (if you haven't already) to start decorating for fall around your abode! Take something as simple as a pumpkin and spice it up. Rather than going right for the typical jack 'o' lantern, why not create something unique, fun, and special to delight your kids and dress up your typical decorations.
