    • Of our many decorations for Halloween on our porch, including several marvelous bats hanging from the ceiling with glowing red eyes, and the giant (three-foot) furry spiders crawling across a 10-foot web, the mummy seemed to be the favorite of all our visitors. I like her (him), too. πŸ™‚

      • Oh, I see, it’s for Halloween !
        Sound you put quite an effort and the work !!! (Must be a fun πŸ˜€ )
        Over here in England, it is not a family occasion but an excuse for young people to
        have a crazy costume party in a Club (and get drunk :-D)

  2. I like the mummy too. How in the world is baby cheeks gonna sleep tonight with all of that scary evening’s activity! πŸ™‚ The three-foot spiders would cause nightmares for me!

    • Baby Cheeks zonked out within 20 minutes of her return home after trick-or-treating. πŸ˜€ She could hardly carry herself up the stairs after all that walking. It was a big night for her. She really likes the mummy, too. I think she likes the fact that she’s “in the know” about it being a decoration, while some of the other children who approached our porch were a bit unsure about it. She could be “the authority” when she assured them that it was OK. Unfortunately, since rain was forecast this year, we didn’t get out our fabulous, very realistic and creepy-looking wraith and a motion-sensitive ghost. Baby Cheeks is completely fascinated with our basement, (1) because she’s rarely allowed go down there, and (2) because all of these Halloween characters “live” down there.

      • Ah, the magic of childhood! I truly would like to meet Baby Cheeks! πŸ™‚

  3. Oh what fun! You went all out on the decorating – absolutely wonderful AND that mummy is most assuredly a highlight – what a GREAT idea! I hope your daughter had fun trick or treating – we sure had fun seeing all the costumes here (although Sam was mostly in the basement peeking around the corner!).

    Hugs, Pam

    • Yes, my little one did have a great time trick or treating, thank you for thinking of her. Our younger kitty, Atticus, hid up in his safe place on our third floor for the entire event, despite our sitting out on the porch so no one would ring the doorbell (he’s terrified every time the doorbell rings, poor baby).

  4. I’m wondering if that attracts more kids or keeps some of them away.

  5. A good looking mummy for sure.

    • Thanks! We brought him in from the porch last night, and he’s fitting in quite nicely now to our living room, so we’re thinking of keeping him year round. πŸ˜‰

  6. Love the glowing red light on the mummy . . . the spiders and bats must be awesome.

    • Thank you. Yes, we love our spiders and bats, too. We have a wonderful wraith and motion-sensitive ghost, too, but didn’t get them out this year, because of the weather.

  7. FABULOUS! I would love to see pix of everything. More pix, please!! (Yeah, even the creepy spiders). The bats sound great too. Love Halloween.

    • Thank you, Miss Maura. I’m glad you like our mummy. We’re big fans of Halloween. Because of the weather, we didn’t put some of our favorite decorations out this year (including a really great wraith, with heavy, clanking chains and a spooky, motion-sensitive ghost who spins around and moans when approached).

  8. This is so much fun! Because of where we live we do not get any kids for Halloween, so I’ve stopped putting up decorations. I really miss doing that.
