Halloween Has Been and Gone But Not Forgotten!

Here we were preparing for Halloween. This is one of the most important rituals-the pumpkin carving! It is messy and gooey but we aren't afraid to get our hands in it. In fact we will get up to our elbows in it if we have to!

However, we got two done and we ran out of steam. But that didn't put a damper on the decorating. We covered the widow in glow-in-the-dark ghosts. We hung a scary mask on the railing and we put ghosts in the tree out front!

Scared yet?

Well the part you don't see is the scary door mat that makes a creepy sound every time a trick'or'treater steps toward the door!A few costumed gools were spooked by it but strangely enough the little ones seemed to enjoy stepping on and off, on and off! Oh the horror of it!

If you weren't afraid before you should be now! This trick'or'treater meant business. Candy or else! So I let him have what he wanted and I was spared. Until next year when we will do it all again. I love this event. The whole neighbourhood gets involved-strange ritual but so much fun.
