Happy Halloween!

We're gearing up for a night of trick or treating, even though a certain someone has a belly ache and has stayed home from school today. We'll gather candy and eat it later, I guess. It's been a long time since I strung up ghosts that flew through Mom's yard, freaking out young and old alike. So, it's been fun spooking up our windows and carving our pumpkins. The photo below of all the lighted eyes was taken from the street. I used the six windows in the master bedroom and front parlor as my palate for spookiness. The two little faces seen in the bottom right hand of the photo are the two jack-o-lanterns spooking the top step of the porch. (Double click it to enlarge it for better effect.) The second photo is a close-up of our two scary sentinels.
















It hasn't snowed for a hundred . . .

As you can see from Mr. Scarecrow in the previous post, we got a little snow earlier in the week. Below, I post a little video of the first snowflakes, which you can barely see, but whose soundtrack makes me smile . . .
