Next Dishcloth swapquestion

Every holiday has oddball things available to use for decoration, have in the house, or wear - some things are stranger than others. What's the oddest/strangest/weirdest Halloween decoration you have ever gotten for your home? Or, if you've never had a "wow, did I REALLY buy that?!" moment - what's the strangest Halloween decoration you've seen somewhere else?

Mine is this crazy witch. I love her the kids not to much. The first year of each of their lives and they see and hear it they scream.

The toilet paper has been around for a while. I have bought it before. My friends tepeed trees with it also.

Now Elizabeths turn

She has been so good lately with all her sisters attention here are some pictures of her. She is a spunky smart little girl. Does not take any shit from anyone; even her parents which can be a pain. She tells people that her name is ELIZABETH and if you can not say her whole name then you need to practice it. She is my snuggle bug and I get more kisses then I know what to do with.

Love you Elizabeh

Rachel Cheerleading For The Mohawks Midget Football

Rachel loves cheering. I tell people she was born to be a cheerleader. She has all the cheers down and you can hear yelling them out. I think her dancing for four years has helped.

Here she is cheering. She is the one in the middle.

This is her posing before the game.

Weekly Topic All HAllows Eve dishcloth Swap

Here in Atlanta, it's finally cooling down, and beginning to truly seem like fall. I sit now with windows open, and the air is cooler than usual, and trees are beginning to change. For me, cool mornings, crisp evenings, and trees in red, gold and orange glory are the very best parts of Fall - What are your favorite parts of fall? How do you know it's truly arrived where you are?

I love the cooler weather. Do not get me wrong I love summer but I was born in the fall and I love it. Doing stuff outside is so nice a long sleeve shirt and you are good to go.

Also love Halloween and Thanksgiving.
