Wow its hard to believe today is November 1st..feels like we should still have some October left and then go into November..Today I am removing my halloween decor and putting up what little Thanksgiving stuff I have..here is last nights photos of the house..I lit luminaries in the front and the little houses on the porch..(next photos) and put various luminaries in the yard up front and by the grave markers...it looked really festive last night..there was only my neighbor and myself (I think) that was passing out candy..it was neat to see the kids across the street getting candy as well..reminds me of when I went and the neighborhoods were filled with kids..since this is a rural setting..we don't get that..so it was nice to hear and see..and the weather was good..no rain in site..it sprinkled earlier in the day..but was purrfect for the kiddies.
with the flash..I also had my strobe light on the 3 witches on the side of the house..that strobe light was awesome!!! it really set the mood for these 3 beauties..next year I need to get a cauldron and dried ice and that strobe light..but we got lots of compliments from the kids that they liked our decor..that is nice to hear especially from kids..makes it all worth it..doesn't it? we had 24 little nose goblins last night..they came late like 7:30pm till about 8:15pm and then it was all done..
our friends the Hogans from church came after "trunk or treating" at the church..and so glad they did..here is little Nygel in his dinasaur costume ( this is the little guy I got to see being born in may of this year)..he is a chubby little thing..
and he smiles all the time..which adds to his boyish charm and makes him irresistable..(mom is holding him)...
here is big brother Naylin being held by his dad..he is alittle flying monkey.;) love that face..
and here are the big sisters..Nykol in white and Nataly in red..they don't look very scary do they?
now...that's better..;)Nykol has oatmeal and glue on her face..her mom did such a great job on their makeup..and those kids got some serious candy too..
I was surfing someones Pinterest a couple of weeks ago and found some great fall decorating ideas that I wanted to share with you all..this one looks like Cinderella's chariot..
these last two are my favorites.;)
I really want one of those wooden pitch forks..never seen them in these parts..well the weather is glorious..I raked up more leaves yesterday..(hey my special garden had to look nice last night)..not that anyone could tell in pitch black darkness..but it needed to be done..as we are getting rain starting tomorrow night for the next 10 days..so its gotta be done before they get wet and soggy..
we are having my hubbys buddy over for steak dinner tonight..and I am working on more projects..I hope your first day of November is a pretty one...its a bit cold..think I am going to light a fire and take the chill off.
Have a great day everyone.)
