Snack-O-Lanterns and Mummy Pizzas

Ghoulish ghosts, beastly bats, creepy critters.... they are all invited to my house this year for Halloween.
We have a lot of fun with Halloween every year.  It's always been one of my fun favorites.
What will we infest our entrance with this year?  I don't know, but it will be startling for our trick-or-treaters.
I love to go crazy with haunting treats in October.  Witchy pancakes are green (and pumpkin spice ones for Mama), pizzas look like mummies

and oranges are transferred into jack-o-lantern serving dishes for fruit snacks.

I got these ideas from Family Fun
This year we have costume ideas organized and started. 
Drew was easy.  He has held fast to his truck idea, so I found a monster truck costume that we'll spruce up with details.
Emma, well, her's is a bit of a funny story.  A couple of weekends ago, when we were at the 4th Annual Beautiful People Eat Pork party and  Emma was being a fussy eater (imagine that).  The only thing that perked her up were cookies.  She shunned away from BBQ, beans, potato salad and even apple pie.  Cookies were her only interest.  She would grumble and fuss, "cookie" and sounded just like Cookie Monster.  So that's it.  She's Cookie Monster.
I'm making that one, so you'll see pictures when I finish.
Well, I'm off to do more decorating.  I love to hear about fun Halloween ideas.
What are some of your favorite Halloween ideas?
