Thanks, Dawg and Kayelle!

Kay, "disturbingly tres chic" is the most apt description I've heard - I'll pass that on to my daughter! And yes, a tiara would be perfect. The Lovely Ladies will probably change and grow throughout the years.

My daughter and SIL are both artists, so they have that creativity goin' on. I'll try to find the ghouly hitchhiking ghosts Steve carved and painted for an entrance to their Halloweeny home.

The NICU nurse called him "Kirk" (Douglas) when he was born.
"Kirk Douglas"....that's perfect, CG! I have a candle and a straw scarecrow on my front porch, and called that good.

That's a really spectacular pumpkin, CG! I was never very good at it as hard as I tried.

The Halloweeny entrance to their front yard - SIL Steve carved, built, and painted everything but the humans. lol




Just one more, then I'm done....I don't want to be boring....just want to share some fun pics. They had a lot of trick or treaters coming to their house, and this little girl loved the ghosty window.

Spike tonight mentioned when it was just too dangerous for kids to go trick or treating. Razor blades, acid, and all sorts of other horrible things that had been put in candy in the previous year. So the city we were living in held a huge party for the kids in the two movie theatres in our town. He even remembered the movie they saw and some of the acts that were shown. Like a great magic show whereby the magician brought kids up on stage to help him. Spike got to be one of the kids. Fortunately, today sanity has returned to Halloween and the kids are allowed to have fun once again and be kids.
