Pumpkin Tangle 2014


Happy Halloween, Everybody!!

Comments on: "Trick or Treat at The Boo’s 2014" (42)

  1. Thanks for the big fright this Friday morning Sammy! I much prefer the beautiful spider and the pumpkin .. lovely picture!

  2. Awesome! Happy Halloween x

    • Do you celebrate it?

      • Ooh we do! This year Isobel is a bit too old for trick or treating with me and friends but a bit too young for going on her own. We’ve always been in the past, we’ve dressed up and gone to the houses that are decorated – there’s not many but we find some. I love it. It’s not very big over here with a lot of houses putting up signs for kids to stay away. I’m still dressing up though in case we get some kids to the house ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’d love a Halloween in the US because it looks like such a big fun holiday!

        Is it as big as the movies make it out to be in America?!

      • I think it depenfs on the neighborhood. Ours doesn’t get trick or treaters but sometimes a little vandslism! Boo ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        There are lots of kids and cul-de-sacs where my g’kids live so it’s usually lots of decorating and everybody out on the streets. Some parents dress up and some turn their garages into haunted houses, which the kids love. A very festive. Ight and
        lukily this year very nice weather for tonight.

      • Well we also had lovely weather but no trick or treaters so we have sweets galore!

      • I hope you bought your favorie kind since you’re now obliged to eat it !

  4. Love the spider ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. So much for my lame tombstone and spider-webbing on the porch…

  6. You too, Sammy!

  7. What a fun decoration…that giant spider!!

    • Thanks, Paula! Our son goes wild at Halloween so every year he’s in the garage designing and erecting something new for weeks ahead of time. Then he starts in on his costume – always a hoot!

      Stay safe!

  8. Eeeek! Spiders! You couldn’t get me within 100 miles of that house.

  10. donna like donna like donna like ack hate big spidees on houses.

  11. LOVE the spider!

  12. That spider…..I mean I know it’s fake, but the idea of a spider, even a fake one, that big on my house….*shudder*

    The pumpkin on the other hand is gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you, Celine. About halfway through the evening, I realized that a different spider – that jumped at me and trick or treaters every time I handed out candy – was going to give me a nightmare. I had so much fun! Our son is very creative and all the parents said their kids couldn’t wait to trick or treat at “the spider house”.

  13. That’s one huge spider! Thanks for stopping by on my blog, feel free to follow. I’m a new follower now. All the best.

  14. Look out Spiderman! Your spider is so black and fuzzy I could almost be convinced to be friends with it. Almost … ๐Ÿ™‚
    I love the fall tangle too!

    • ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks, Kirsten. I wonder where the spiders are nesting until next year ! They were a big hit with most kids but we did have a few tears!

  15. Wow what an amazing tangle tingle lol that is truly spectacular. How long did it take you? Is that your house + spider! Sheesh I mean seriously how big??? Lol

    • Thank you, Justine – I worked on it multiple evenings. Next time I would do the web differently and a bigger spider ๐Ÿ™‚

      That is our grandkids’ house. Our son made three huge spiders and some smaller jumping ones. It was the hit of the neighborhood!

  16. Obviously I’m catching up and I’m late for Hallowe’en, but that spider is amazing. I can see why it would make some kids cry. I think it would give me the willies too!!
