My 2nd Favorite Holiday Come and Gone...
You know, it is just not the same, when your kids are to old to go Trick or Treating. But since Halloween is my 2nd favorite Holiday, we try to go all out in other ways and have lots of fun just the same. We made our tunnel of dead trees and put lights thru it, and lots of cobwebs. This year we expanded it to go all the way down our walk, to the sidewalk. It was a beautifully spooky sight. This year we all made gravestones for the front yard. The Girls wanted a coffin to lay in, so we built that too. The kids had fun laying in the coffin and scaring kids as they came by. Denver wanted in on the action as well, he wore his trusty trenchcoat, and put on his scream mask, and stood with his staff on the front lawn. He made a great statue, until people came along and couldn't tell if he was real or not. Until he growled at them and scared them to death. Kelly and Bill handed out candy, I did a little visiting and overall we all had a fabulous Halloween. Pumpkins were carved, kids were scared, the yard looked spooky, candy disappeared and a great time was had by all.
Pumkin carving for Family Home Evening...
Carving is always fun, until someone cuts a finger off... Oops!
Spooky, Don't ya think???
