What’s the best part of carving jack-o-lanterns for Halloween?  Family bonding time?  Displaying your beautiful/scary/creepy/sweet/funny masterpieces for the neighbors to see?  All that, yes.  But my favorite reason?  ROASTED PUMPKIN SEEDS.

Lucky for me, this year all three kids picked out pumpkins to carve, so there will be no shortage of seeds to snack on.  And, we are going to mix things up a bit and try adding a few fun flavors to our seeds.  I’m thinking sweet, savory, maybe even a spicy batch for hubby.  Check out these 6 delicious ways to prepare your pumpkin seeds this Halloween!

Earlier this month we posted our list of Halloween Events around the South Shore , full of fun activites the whole family can enjoy.  But if you’re looking for something a little bit scarier, don’t worry, we have rounded up 10 of the creepiest, scariest Haunted House experiences on the South Shore (as well as a couple of drive worthy locations a bit outside the area)!

These haunted happenings are not for the faint of heart!  Keep in mind that many do have a minimum age requirement, although some locations do offer  a “lights on” experience for younger children on specific nights.  Enjoy! {keep reading…}

On Tuesday, October 21st, Stop & Shop is hosting their 6th annual Healthy Kids Summit at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.   This FREE event, geared towards kids ages 6-14, focuses on the importance of nutrition and exercise to a healthy lifestyle.

UPDATED:  The Summit has been canceled due to impending inclement weather. 

I attended the event last year with my three kids, and they had an amazing time!  Their favorite part was definitely getting out on field with the Patriots players, but they soaked up some great information on the importance of nutrition too!  (Read all about our experience here).
