All good things must come to an end...

After weeks and weeks of decorating and preparing for our Halloween party, it's officially over. I never give the outdoor decorations as much "blog time" as I do the indoor decorations, so it's only fair that I leave you with a few last exterior shots and a short video clip. Chris is the master behind the outdoor decorating. Love ya, honey!

(Josie has her "tough" bat girl pose down pretty good after weeks of practice)

(Note that Chris has carved their names into their pumpkins)

(I love this shot of Josie peeking over the fence)

(This spider is twenty feet wide and made of lights, garden stakes and an old card table covered in black fabric and duck tape. The eye balls are glass baby food jars filled with more miniature lights. your heart out!)

(The spiderweb pumpkin is always one of my favorites)

I say this every year after Halloween...anyone interested in helping pack up our stuff?

It was all so spectacular it must be kind of sad to have it all over. Putting away all the decorations is always a big job.(-:

I must say, I am sorry to see Halloween go because it has been so exciting seeing all your Halloween party preparations! I put all my Halloween stuff away today, and it was kind of neat to reorganize everything. Happy November!
