Pete and spider

We took more steps in getting our house decorated for Halloween today. This morning Pete Petersen came over and started helping Elaine put up some decorations – the ones requiring use of a ladder – while I was at a doctor appointment. They got quite a bit done by the time I got back, but there is still a lot to go, I am sure! Continue reading Looks Halloween-y. Surgery followup. Dinner planning. George Immerso birthday.

skulls
The stack of skulls is out of the box

It’s time to be thinking of Halloween decorations for the outside of the house and we took the first steps today. Pete Petersen came by and pulled out the under-deck storage tray where we store many holiday items and Elaine and I took out the Halloween stuff. One box was too heavy for either of us to lift, so Pete also took that one out and removed its contents; that was the stack of skulls you see in the photo. We have lots more to go!

Many residents were out front of their houses to watch the parade go by; Elaine and I as well as a couple of others had bags of candy which we handed out to the watchers. Some folks had young kids visiting, and they were excited to get the candy. Continue reading Halloween in the Park. Moon Valley Cafe.

Hallowe’en season is here, and decorations at the Violettes now show it. We dug out decorations we used last year and Elaine has added some to them for this year. A notable addition is the large witch on our deck. I know there are yet a few more to put up and I am sure Elaine has some in mind beyond what I already know about. That’s a given! Hallowe’en is a fun time to decorate, and is a popular holiday in general. Elaine gets excited about Hallowe’en but it seems she got started later this year than usual. Probably because we took that trip to Wyoming a short time back. Continue reading Halloween decorations. Newsletter. New webs.
