Hallloween 2012

 My husband took pictures just before I took everything down for the year.  He loves taking pictures.  That is a good thing because that is what keeps me from posting more.  Both my husband and Candice could eat, sleep, and drink photography.  Not a true love for me.  What is?  Decorating, creating, business, and grandbabies.  Photography is a true "barrier to entry" for me right now.

 I absolutely love this cabinet.  It is so much fun to change things up in it.

 Candice and I decked out a few crows that partied at our house this year.

I had lots more up and a bunch more that I didn't put out this year.  Sad to see it go but we will enjoy the breathing space until we pull out the Christmas decorations.  With all the snow, it feels like they should be out and up.

We had a lot of snow Friday night.  We heard tree branches breaking all night long and the power was out for most of the night.  The temperatures are in the 20's.   We spent all morning yesterday shoveling snow, cutting up tree limbs and branches and hauling it to the compost station.  The back yard is still a war zone.  We lost three big tree limbs out of the Mulberry tree.  It might be the end of our Mulberry.  We need a chain saw and tall ladder before we deal with it.  Once again we were reminded of the saying, "Don't mess with mother nature."

We lost about half the fruitless plum in the front yard but I'm not so sad about that one.  There is a lot more light in the living room now that the sun can shine in.  Of course, I can see how dirty my windows are now too.  Good thing I bought a window washing from Groupon.  He is supposed to come and clean them on December 18.   What are the chances that will really happen with this freezing weather and snow?  I sure wouldn't want to be doing it.  He had such a big response, that he had to schedule two months out.  Burrr!

We attended the BYU vs Idaho football game.  The benches were covered with snow a foot high and it was 25 degrees but BYU won by a long shot so it was good.

Please leave me a comment and let me know that you dropped by.  I would love to reconnect.

I love seeing your Halloween decorations every year. I don't know how you do it though -- all that decorating and undecorating is so much work. Those crows are just toooo cute!!!
