Default Halloween 2011

Here's a link to my photobucket pictures of this year's Halloween extravaganza. That is Mike in most of the pictures, but Fred is the one helping him in a couple and doing "the wave" with the witch coming out of the cauldron. Mike made the silhouettes out of plywood and painted them. The wood cost $10. We saw similar things in a catalog for $40 each section plus Shipping and Handling. Mike's are much better!

You would be surprised at how many people in Australia think that Halloween is an American extravegance until they find out that it actually started in Europe as All Hallow's Eve. True story.

Like the pictures though Priscilla . Darling child has a camp on that weekend so might get some lollies for them to have a treasure hunt with.

You'd be amazed at how many things we get "blamed" for, Jube! Thanks for the compliments, folks. We do enjoy it!

Look! We had snow for Halloween. And, you can see Jenn and Mike's awesome costumes! We kept power, but no internet or tv from Sunday am to Tuesday am. Not fun, but I can live without for a few days. We had to get plowed out, 5 inches of very heavy snow.

the snow makes the cemetery look muich more realistic!

Unbelievable that in such a modern country it can so easily happen that you're without internet, power and such if mother nature cracks her whip

I agree, Hans. Granted, a lot of trees come down on wires. However, that is part of what the power companies are paid to do - keep things cleared and safe. Days and often weeks without is not really acceptable.
