View from INSIDE my bedroom this month.

Spooky Porch Update

So after about a week of moping and saying he 'didn't think he felt' like decorating this year.

My husband got over it and did this today.

This is the newest addition to the family.

The kids have dubbed him Flat Stanley

He's as tall as me

My carved and lit pumpkins

I generally hate spiders but don't mind them outdoors so much
especially light up ones in cool colors like purple and green

I think the weird hanging insect looking thing reminds me of summer and mosquitoes.
Here in Illinois they can feel this big some nights

The skeletor guy accidentaly gets left turned on some nights and I have the pleasure of hearing him moan while he glides back and forth on his zip line

I just call this guy rabid bat

we've had this ghost/pumpkin combo since our early married days
before kids and ghoulish stuff took over

light up spider webs book end each end of the porch

Flat Stanley behaving

Still to come....

Some spooky additions to the 2nd floor

Stay tuned
