halloween house ....

one year, when i was working very hard at being an artist, my new year's resolution was to paint 100 paintings in a year ... i think i ended up painting 140ish ... and selling almost 100 .... in that era (as opposed to the economic recession AND older kids make you much busier era) i used to put each new painting on the mantle to try them out ... here's  a flickr set of the mantle metamorphosis .... so i'd study them a while .... now i just have one up there permanently .. the stuff around it changes, but the pictures been there more than two years .... 
 now we are ready for halloween .....
 we have more than our share of pumpkins ... most of those are from a dollar store run a dozen years ago ... got them for some game i was leading at the kids' school .... this year for the fifth grade party i've signed up to help with we are doing mummy relays ... the only party supply i'm in charge of is toilet paper ... that kinda cracks me up ....
 here's a picture of my front door ....
this is the first year that we've dressed up our pumpkins ... pumpkin witch, pumpkin pirate, and pumpkin zombie in chains .... from three different costumes, three different years, three different kids ...

Looks like you are ready for Halloween at your house. I laughed at you being in charge of the toilet paper. That is quite a job, LOL!
