Monster Mash Redeux

I started to laugh reading the comments so far!!! 

So many of you seem to think that we do a lot of Halloween decorations and go 'all out'.  Actually, and I don't know if this is a NJ thing or not, but for our town/area, our display is rather small and tame!!!  LOL

But, thank you for all the compliments, just the same!

Here is a picture of Frank with his light on!

This is a picture of the house front and bushes all lit up!  You can't tell but the lights are a mixture of dark purple, like this text color, and bright orange!

Here is another picture of Pumpkin, with a little decorated pumpkin that she got today at the local nursery.

They are both pretty cute, huh?  She named it 'Twinkle'!

My sweet little Pumpkin has quite a cold!  It started as a sore throat, now is the whole kit and kaboodle, runny nose, clogged ears etc.  In fact, I am worried about her ears... we will have to keep an eye on it!

We had a very quiet weekend.  Yesterday, slept late, worked on the decorations yesterday and today.  Went to Fuddrucker's with Ilene and Bob and kids.  Saw a cockroach.  Eww... won't be going back anytime soon!  Came back here, had some wine, chatted the night away. 

Today, got up and went to local luncheonette for breakfast with mom, dad, and kids.  Came home and took a nap.  Finished Halloween decorations, played cards with Pumpkin, did journal entries.

We will haveour 'family time' and watch tv all together in a few minutes.  We will watch AFV together, now that the  new season has begun!

My left middle finger is still swollen and sore.  Hubby thinks I need to get a cortisone shot.  I say - not gonna happen!  lol  I am really great with all kinds of shots and stuff, but not that kind!  Not yet anyway!   I will try to put it off as long as I can! 

Basically, my whole left side is all messed up again.  UGH!   It didn't stop me from enjoying the weekend though.  No, we didn't do anything exciting or strenuous, but with Pumpkin being under the weather too, it all worked out! 

Pumpkin is sniffling right next to me right now! 

By the way, the Jets lost.  Boo.  The Patriots are kicking the Cowboys asses up and down the field right now, and Tom Brady has a career high of 5 touchdown passes in the game!  Woohoo!  I hate Dallas... being a Giants fan... that is a given.  Giants play tomorrow!  Oh yeah, and Brett Favre won today, too!  Yeah!

be well,
Dawn

great decorations.. love 'em!  As for football I hate both  the pompous ass Romo made the comments about only losing to Buffalo if he went over the Falls... and Brady... grrrrrrr  I cheered for both to get hurt.  LOL  Kidding...  it's a closer game now obviously as 11 points isn't kickin butt Dallas has to have their d show up and stop 'em in order to have a chance....   I don't care who wins I hate both.  LOL
hugs

Aaaaawwww cool!!  Wish I could decorate.  With no kids and the temps continue to be in the 90's, it's hard to get in the Halloween mood here.  I am almost wishing to be up in northern NY. Well, almost, at least until the first freeze.  :-D

Thanks for th pics!  And,yes, Pumpkin's cute!

You live in a funny area.  No one decorates for Halloween around here.  One or two people but that's about it!  Your decorations are the bomb!

Hope Pumpkin feels better really soon, and that you don't catch her bugs.  They( the decorations) look really Ghoul at night, too.  Tehehe.
