Dem Bones, Dem Bones

Today us girls had to go out to the post office to mail some Halloween swap bottles. Since we were out, we stopped for our free Starbucks - only good for the rest of the week as the grand reopening is planned for Saturday. Then we trade free coffee for coffee available for twice as many hours a day - in particular, after sunset. It seems a fair trade.

We stumbled upon some Halloween decorations on sale (Already! Apparently they're in a hurry to start stocking the same aisles with Christmas decorations) so we decided to pick up a few more things for the yard.

Joli helped us sort out the bones.

The head bone's connected to the leg bone, the leg bone's connected to the hand bone, the hand bone's connected to..... uhm..... another head bone. So, not a complete skeleton. Still, fun to play with.

Here Grammy, let me give you a helping hand. HA! Get it!? A "helping HAND"! I crack myself up.

The yard looks really great now. I wanted to take photos to show you but by the time we were finished up -

It was dark already.

Still, I took a couple of photos anyway.

Don't they look like they're really lit up inside in this night photo? I wish we had someone standing near them in the picture so you could see how huge the one in the middle is - it's easily over three feet tall. Lisa filled these all up with leaves she raked out of the front yard. And the tree hasn't even dropped a fraction of it's leaves yet.

I'll take more photos tomorrow in the daylight. Over at Laume's Studio there are some photos of inside decorations.
