Spooky decorations

Biscuit asked if we could put up outside decorations for Halloween this year. And since I love holidays, I said of course we could. I already had a box of Halloween and fall decorations in the attic, so I dug them out.

We have a couple of light-up pumpkins, a couple of scarecrows, a small bale of hay, some light-up skeleton heads, a string of pumpkin lights, a string of ghost lights and some fun blinking lights that look like assorted pairs of eyeballs that we hang in our shrubbery.

We got everything put out and plugged into a timer. Now that it's getting dark earlier, the lights are starting to turn themselves on by the time we get home.

It seems like more and more people are putting up Halloween decorations these days, so on our way home the other evening, we took a cruise around our neighborhood to look for ghosts and goblins.

We came upon our house from the backside of the neighborhood, and I said, "What kind of crazy people would let monsters live in their shrubs?"

"Hmmm," Biscuit said. "I'm not sure. Let's investigate."

I pulled into the driveway, and we got out.

"Mom!" Biscuit said. "WE'RE the crazy people!"

Here are a couple of pictures of our decor, along with a video of the monsters in the shrubs.

These pumpkins are made of
soft foam and are reusable.

The scarecrows are stuck into a
hay bale covered in fall leaves.
