Boo ! Happy Thursday…..
We’re starting to gear up for Halloween around here. The next door neighbors have set up a graveyard in front of their house with funny sayings on the cardboard gravestones…..and they have a scarecrow by their trees that’s lost his head – spooky! The little boys who live in the house are having a Halloween party so some of that decorating will be for that but the rest is just because there are a lot of little kids in our neighborhood and they will be making the rounds for Trick or Treat on Halloween night !
Mom bought some scary looking pumpkin faces printed on big pieces of plastic that she’ll put in the windows and with light shining behind them, they look pretty cool !
We have driveway/garden lights that are about 15 inches off the ground all the way down our driveway to the road…….Mom has some plastic orange pumpkins that she puts over top of the lights and it looks like a row of pumpkins all the way down the driveway in the dark. They look great too.
Do you get the picture that Halloween is a big deal around here? Well, it is. Tomorrow is pumpkin shopping day for my parents too. Today they couldn’t go – Mom had to go to the dentist and Dad had jury duty. Tomorrow is “find Sammy’s pumpkin” day. Yippppeeee!
I know not everyone gets into Halloween – but make an exception if you can and consider joining in the fun of a Halloween Pumpkin Decorating Contest ! I’m going to have two categories: Best Virtual Decorated Pumpkin and Best Real Decorated Pumpkin. Not everyone buys a pumpkin and carves it but some of you do – and those who don’t can create one with your computer or find one somewhere online that you like and use the photo for your entry! Fun? Of course it is! I’ll tell you more about the contest Friday. Yes there will be prizes for each category but you can only have one entry.
Happy Thursdays Guys and Gals……..
‘Til tomorrow – The Knight of the Night signing off……
Spooky Hugs, Sammy
