Here we go! Today is Friday 13th … And another Friday has arrived to show off some of my Jack-o-Lanterns from the year 2013. Some I’ve carved for our local “Family Fright Night Campout”. And a couple of pumpkins, I’ve carved for Halloween night.
Could Be Halloween
Yowling, prowling, growling cat
Why do you switch your tail like that?
Why do your eyes flash gold and green?
Could be–must be–Halloween!
Slinky, inky, blinky cat,
Why do you arch your back like that?
What scary creatures have you seen?
Could be–must be- Halloween!
Since the temperatures dropped 40 degrees from yesterday, it was perfect weather to set up more Halloween decoration in the front yard this morning. We sat up the “Graveyard”, and put the ceramic pumpkin in the front garden. Finally we found a good spot for Mr. Skeleton. He hangs out in the graveyard and keeps an “eye” on our visitors.
On October 1st, Kevin and I started to install the Halloween decoration and lights in the front yard. We are not done, yet. But I wanted to make sure, we had something out by the beginning of the month of October. Since I was painting the walls in the front room, the furniture were still in the garage and blocking the entrance to the attic. Now, the furniture is back in the front room, we might work on the graveyard tomorrow. It supposed to be cooler anyway. That’s perfect weather to get the Halloween decor ready. And on Halloween I’ll bring the bigger items back outside. I captured some photos of what’s out in the front yard so far.
And it is already Friday, again! This week, Kevin and I were really busy: We sat up the outdoor Halloween decoration; I painted the living room walls; and on Wednesday, Kevin and I went to the Bret Michaels concert. The week went by in a blink of an eye.
Here is Part III of the pumpkins I’ve carved throughout the years (2011 – 2012). And I’ve just noticed, we are halfway through the “Pumpkin, Pumpkin, Pumpkin” series.
When witches go riding
And black cats are seen,
The Moon laughs and wispers
‘Tis near Halloween.
Hurray! October has arrived. It is my favorite and busiest month of the year. Both my girls are born in October; the State Fair of Texas began a couple of days ago; Halloween is only 30 days away; some of these weekends will be spend in a pumpkin patch; and the weather is being a little bit cooler. I love October! And I will blog about our fun adventures throughout the month.
