Ghosts of Halloween Pasts

Becka and I are participating in this year's SITS Halloween Celebration at SITS so today I am going to take a break from our Preschool Activity week and highlight some of our Halloween treats from a past year.

Remember this pumpkin?

I think Becka did a wonderful job painting her pumpkin, giving it a little different face than the traditional jack-o-lantern.

And here is a video of the stunt my husband and I played on trick-or-treaters last year.  We painted his whole head grey and white.  It helped that his hair was shaved.  
This is a video of me approaching him (16 sec long)

And here is a video of John tricking a few neighbors (12 sec):

We tricked every single trick-or-treater!!!  Some kids approached very apprehensively while others had no clue my husband's head was alive.  We even got our 16 yr old babysitting neighbor startled.  She had a whole conversation with me before she realized the head on the table was alive.  It was a lot of fun. 

And here are a few fall decorations and links from past posts that highlight the fall season!




Thanks for stopping by everyone!
Happy Halloween!!!

I would wet my pants. I'm not the person you want to scare.
