A booing we go.......

Last night we went 'booing.' It was soooooo much fun. Unlike some folks, we place the gift and then ring the doorbell and run. We almost got caught last year! This year we didn't.....we were ready and knew which way to run.
Yes, I'm 48 and still giggle as I bolt through people's yards and avoid sprinker heads while running. All the while, hearing my husband say "look kids, mom runs like Timmy Turner's mom!" HAH! Of course, I had to hear that 3 times....once for each house we 'booed.'

Since I felt MUCH better, I got much of my decorating done.

Meet Frankie.

We've had him for something like 8 years! We also had a witch but she died....I don't remember how.

Here are the Halloween place mats the kids made in Pre-k. They are my favorite Halloween decoration.... The kids get excited each year when we bring them out.

These next two pictures are window peepers Curly Girl made when she was 7 or8.
She did them without a picture and I think they are so good.
I remember asking her why she made them 'peeping', and she just thought they would' look neat.'
They are faded and hard to see now, but still one of my favorite decorations.


Boo! I see you!

Val- We ring the doorbell and run, too! It has to be a bit spooky to be a true "Boo!", in my book!:) Love your decorations! Lori

Sounds like you're having lots of fall fun! We've been booing our friends next door for the past three years. We live in a rural area so we don't have many neighbors but since we're great friends with our neighbor we boo each other every year. The kids love it and are surprised by the package and Halloween goodies. I guess we should get going and get our boo package ready for delivery.
