Over, But Not Yet Done

Looonnnnggg day.

Surprisingly, we didn't have as many Trick-or-Treaters as last year, so I have boo-koodles of candy left.

But the kids seemed to like the decorations a lot--even the tiny ones. One family told me they've come here every year since we've been here! All the kids seemed to know it was a Mad Scientist's Laboratory, so I was pleased to get the concept across.

It's almost 1 am, and except for a few little tea lights stil burning in the pumpkins, all is dark. I'm finishing up a mug of hot mulled cider, Tandi is out like a light in her crate, and when I get the energy, I'm dragging my carcass to bed.

So here are a few pictures from the night:

This is most of the main display after it got dark. It's lit by the green spotlights, and my friend is crouched down beside the table.

Puking Pumpkin and Friend:

Pinky, these are for you:

You may have the cutest Halloween stuff I've ever seen. Loved the one with the doll being eaten by the Jack O lantern.

That is SO cool! I LOVE the theme! I love the Ken doll hanging out of the jack-o-lantern's mouth.

FavoriteSon wanted to carve the puking pumpkin this year, but he got invited to a friends and skipped pumpkin carving for the first time this year. Maybe next year.

We have a pond on our porch and next year I want to get some dry ice.

I was wondering how your Halloween decorations turned out. They looked fabulous, especially spooky looking when bathed in green light. And the barfing pumpkin...icky but funny!
