Now We're On Display!

Shortly after I came home the other day to a backyard full of pumpkins, an idea was born. Following our neighbor's advice, B decided to create a display in our front yard. As you can tell, lighting was not on our side. It was almost 7 which means basically dark around these parts. But, I did manage to get some pictures.

First it started with two pumpkins:

But that wasn't enough for B:


Another pumpkin was added into the mix, off to the side temporarily:


While B pondered a strategy:


And then did some heavy lifting:


The night started looking spooky (and this picture is out of order but I am too lazy to go back and correct it):

Until there were four pumpkins:


Then in the daylight the next day, there were six:


Inviting, isn't it? A path of pumpkins to lead you...



That pumpkin on the top is HUGE even if it is all dented looking. B estimates it to weigh 250 lbs. P.S. B is STRONG:


I love the rainbow of colors/shades in this line:


And, of course, since Halloween is upon us, it was time to change the M&Ms:


On a final note...if you have been a reader of this blog for any length of time, you have probably guessed that the display you see above is not the final display. You would be right.

Stay tuned.




*No one stopped by to say anything about our display. Boo to all of them.

**However, B did manage to scare the crap out of two teenage girls that were taking a picture of the pumpkins by yelling from my office "WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING?"

***B then managed to become creepy old guy by then saying to said teenage girls "There are more pumpkins in the garage."**** Uh, huh.

****In B's defense, there are more pumpkins in the garage and the door was open.

*****The girls, however, did not know this.
