A Halloween “Cutie” and a Winner…or two!

Earlier this week, I shared a few pics of some Halloween decor in my neighborhood….

…..such as this one:


Last year it also had a giant spider and its “prey”

……and today I saw this….eeekk!! The big spider is back!


The spider has flashing red lights and moves up and down…


And then I found Casper…the friendliest of ghosts!!!


Later, my little “cutie” came by before heading out to Trick or Treat with her friends….

…..she was excited to show me the costume she designed herself!!..A girl after my own heart!!

She is “Princess Pikachu”…..she loves Pokemon!




And now I would like to announce the winners…yes winners….

  14. Those are some scaaaary houses!! 😉 I like the spider idea…very creative! Your little one looks too cute — Princess Pikachu is a fabulous idea for a costume. Happy Friday!

  15. Awww she’s such a cutie! Great family pictures! And I love your big spider!!

  16. Aww, what a cutie, for sure! Love the Halloween decorations… What fun! Looking forward to your Christmas decorations!Have a great weekend.

  17. Congrats to the winners. Cute princess!!

  18. those are the greatest decorations of the spiders, and that ghost is awesome. I can’t believe every time I see a new pic of Graylyn, she looks so much older! Loved her costume. She’s beautiful.

  19. Oh my goodness! Your pics are great of you and your family. I’m loving that first pic of the giant spider with the guy rolled up in a web. Hilarious! Those are some creative people. Congrats to the lucky winners too!

  20. Oh Shirley, you’re granddaughter is just a doll — so cute!!! I love the costume; it brings back memories. Our son and his friends LOVED Pokemon for many years; hard to believe he’s a senior in college now.

    I love the cute “Casper” ghost. Believe it or not, that was one of my favorite cartoons when I was growing up. But — the spiders are too much for me. I guess I’m an arachnaphobe because I really, really hate spiders. They scare me to death.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  22. Your princess was very clever with her costume, and much more fun than Random.org! 🙂

  23. Congratulations to the winners 🙂 And Shirley….I had to comment! They left the prey on the roof! I couldn’t help but love it and be repelled all at the same time 🙂

    Have a wonderful day rock star!

  24. I just reviewed your October posts, and I was struck by how beautiful your photographs are and how far you have come from the hatching of this “blog business”. I enjoyed reading about the feature on Blogtalk. It is interesting to follow your path from tentative beginner to big-time conference organizer and Blogstar. Thanks for the valuable information and interesting stories, my friend!
