Happy Halloween




 


Mouse by the GB

Bat by the LB

Owl by the Bear, with bonus cobra (scroll up to jack-o-lantern group photo to see)


The jack-o-lanterns are carved, the costumes are ready, and the pumpkin bucket full of Halloween pencils is ready for trick-or-treat time (yes, I am that neighbor who gives away pencils, but you should see how popular they are!). Yesterday, we carved the pumpkins on the back patio, leaving them on the edge of the raised planter bed with tea lights inside for the whole evening so we could look at them from inside. Tonight, we'll eat Papa Murphy's jack-o-lantern pizza for dinner, move the jack-o-lanterns to the front walk, don our costumes, and set off for another Halloween in our lovely neighborhood with friendly faces and sweetly spooky sights.

Happy Halloween wishes from our haunted house to yours!
Signed,
A mountain man, a black cat, a spider and a 50's girl.

  4. It sounds like all is ready to go at your house! Question - who gives out the pencils at your house if you all go trick-or-treating together? :-)

    BooOOOoooOOOoooOOOoooOOOooo

  6. Your neighbourhood Halloween sounds like a friendly, cosy affair. Great idea to give away pencils. We didn't have a single trick or treater here (it's all old people where we live) but I know lots of my friends were out with their kids in costume having a great time. I hope you all have a lovely evening. x

  8. I'm not usually a fan of spiders but I love those spidery lights. Hope you all had a great evening. We didn't get a single trick or treater here which means I'll have to eat all the choccie I bought in for them.

  10. Hope you all had a good time! We hardly had any trick-or-treaters here at all. I have a lot of candy left, so it's going to work with my hubby.

  11. Fabulous pumpkins! Pumpkin carving is one skill I have never quite got the hang of... We went to Brick or Treat at Legoland for halloween and the day was finished off with an amazing fireworks display. We live in a block of flats and I don't know many neighbours so we don't go trick or treating....

  15. I enjoyed seeing your creative pumpkin carvings! I was driving down to CA on Halloween and I only saw a few adults in costume at various restaurants...no children and no lit pumpkins, so I'm especially glad I got to see your glowing pumpkins. xx
