We have decoated the back table for some fun tonight. Our centerpeice is our fabulous haunted house made last year out of diaper box! We have added new things this year, the most spectacular is the large black kitty....a painted gourd by my DIL's mom!  The grands and I have crafted the other new items....purple bat and spider from craft kits at Micheals.

Anyway, while we are trick or treating, my daughter will be home making our spooky dinner (mainly for kids and grands), of BBQ worm sandwiches (made from boiled strands of hot dogs), apple monsters, and cheese witch fingers! For dessert, pumpkin bread with whipped cream, and sprinkled with Reeses Pieces for prettiness, and hot chocolate.  It is supposed to be down to 64 degrees by 9pm!

I wanted to show this really strange thing I found (actually 6 of them), that looks like a lantern....with a ball on top, and roots!!! It felt a bit mushroomy to me when I pulled it out. Has anyone ever seen anything like this????? Super si fi, if you ask me!

Well,  I hope everyone who celebrates Halloween, has a fun amd safe night!

Love all your Halloween preps, especially that spider!!! As for the weird mushroom looks like a seed pod that has burst and maybe just softened??? Maybe the seed itself had taken root? Apart from that, I have absolutely no clue.

Your halloween decor looks like fun. The mushroom looks like an inverted earth star. Hope you had a great night.
