Happy Halloween???? And Ben

A P.S. added to the front of the post - as sometimes when I add to the bottom my readers skip it - thinking there is nothing new.

Here is Ben in his Zoboomafoo (you may Google now - I'll wait) costume - made by his mommy - isn't she clever?

Smiling happy boy - all ready for trick or treat!

Just look at those big eyes!

And with the hood down - because sometimes a boy gets hot. . .

And a frowning, growling lemur - because he doesn't have any treats,
and everyone knows a lemur needs a treat.

And now back to our regularly scheduled Halloween???

Just had to share this photo with you. We were taking a drive the other day and came upon this. My guess is that the grandkids helped to decorate.

Ben is out trick or treating tonight - downtown, at the fire hall and at his preschool.

Jahn is sick so we took a bag of treats and toys out to him, since he couldn't go out in his Indiana Jones costume. So sad to miss trick or treat and all the fun carnivals.

We are still waiting for our first trick-or-treater - or any trick-or-treaters - we don't get many here - maybe 3 last year. Wish we would get hundreds - I love to see all the kiddies dressed up in their cute costumes.

Happy Halloween!!!!

That is a very weird but exceedingly cool jack o'lantern snowman. Or whatever it is!

We "never" get trick-or-treaters here...yet tonight I had FOUR!!!

Love that pumpkin person. I agree with you. It looks like the kids help decorate. What fun!

Pat said...

NAH...I think it was some adult trying to be "clever" and do all his (not HER, of course) decorating at once. The grandkids would have told the adults that this was WRONG....hehehe

This isn't just totally hilarious, it's completely sends the torturous message that all of us need on Halloween. It had to have been the kids that helped for sure!!!

I went and looked up Zoboomafoo. How fun. Gee, wish some lady whose name starts with a "J" but shall remain nameless takes a camera class... i'm just sayin' (carefully so I don't get smacked)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, look at his cute costume! He's a very handsome lemur, he is!

Hope he got lots and lots of treats!

He is just the cutest Zoboomafoo I have ever seen!!

Ben is just stinkin' adorable! Those are some cute kissable cheeks!!
I bet being sick on Halloween is the worst day ever. Poor Jahn!
Mr Pumpkin is hilarious. I'm glad you got the picture.

Purple Pam said...

I love the added pix of Ben in his costume. What a cutie! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Gee, I haven't been by to visit in awhile and here you have been super busy! I love everything! The unusual pumpkin display---the bat bowl----the three sisters block---wow!

Ben looks so cute , his mother did a terrific job on the costume. A jack o' lantern snowman , now that's creative (LOL).

We got NO trick or treaters.....have to eat 2 bags of snickers ourselves. Well, somebody's gotta do it!

Nishant said...
