Hello my friends! Thanks for stopping in for a visit! We had a nice Halloween, it was fairly quiet for Dayle and I but the boys were invited to a friend's house from school for a party so off they went to that in the evening. They came home tired from running around like maniacs.. lol. Yesterday I packed up all the Halloween specific decorations, left out the Autumn things like pumpkins and set out the turkeys and pilgrims for the next holiday - Thanksgiving. There was some weak sunshine in the dining room this morning and Buddy found a warm spot in a ray of sun. Don't mind the oven racks that I noticed after I'd taken this photo. Dayle took them out of the oven to bake some mac and cheese on Saturday. :-)
Kristi gave me the pilgrim couple last year.
It's amazing how the Indian corn lasts from year to year. The big pillar candle is spice scented. I will light it each evening.
I love this big old clear glass turkey candy dish. I might have to fill it with some fall colored candy!
I'm not sure how long ago I found this pair of small glass turkey candleholders, but they are just neat. Here's a closeup of one of them.
How about some photos of our Halloween? I got this spooky photo of a ghost bride decoration we hung up on the gazebo. Kind of funny as the wind would blow her around and I'd wonder who was out there! :-)
Here is Hayden in his costume.. he is fascinated with "bony guys".
Caleb was some sort of ninja. See the sword he has aimed at his brother? He had way too much fun with that sword and I had to confiscate it a few times. :-)
My daughter posted a photo of our two granddaughters on Facebook.. so I stole it to show you all how cute they looked and how much they are growing up. Amy said she would be bringing Jenna and Paige to visit us this summer, so that is something to look forward to. :-)
My hibiscus is blooming today.. oh how I love that tree!
I won't be swimming this week. I have come down with a cold. So, I'll be sitting by the fire and possibly putting a few more rows in the wedding blanket. I do hope I can say it's finished soon so I can move on to my next project -- crocheting two pairs of pink baby booties for two little girls to be born to my niece and my cousin's daughter. :-) I hope you have a wonderful week ahead! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
