  6. They are all so awesome, I can’t decide which one I like better or which one to start with. I was at my Dollar Store on Friday and they only had the mini pumpkins in right now. I stocked up on some scary decorations for my daughters first apartment which she loved them all. I’m going to check back this week to see if they got the big pumpkins in. Thanks for the awesome round-up!!
