Welcome to the Graveyard!

Hi guys,  happy November to you all.
  This is going to be my last Halloween post for 2013 !  I had a great time making all of those cards and I am thinking I just might have to make it a yearly event of mine.
     I am busy collecting every ones names and then my youngest is going to help me cut them out and draw the winner(s).  As I am still not feeling tip top yet I am hoping to have that up for you guys by Monday,  but in the meantime because so many of you let me know that you would like to see the pictures of Jerry's graveyard I thought I would get the pictures up for you to see.
    We had a ton of trick or treaters and the M&Ms had their two BBFs come over and help give out candy and then they even went out for just little bit of Trick or Treating as well.  I love all of my teenagers. They are a great group of kids and I just love the fact that they hang out at our house.  :0)  Who doesn't love having 4 great teens around to call them Mom and give hugs when they are needed? lol... I love that they hang out here as well, then we know what they are doing and whom they are doing it with.
     Sorry, the sappy Mother in me just comes out and she is relentless when she does.  Anywho, even though I wasn't us to snuff I got to watch the kids get themselves made up and then both Madison and Jerry were sweet enough to get some pictures for me.  I hope you enjoy it. This graveyard is 100% homemade by my Hubby and the M&Ms. It costs next to nothing, but some cheap paint from Walmart and time on Jerry's part to set it all up. He won't admit it,  but he loves to do it.  We don't make it scary as I hate that kind of thing and there are a ton of little ones  that come by, so we don't want to scare them.  Its fun to listen to the parents chuckle over the names on the tomb stones while their kids get candy.  lol  It is so nice to hear them tell Jerry what a great yard he put together. My DH one of those guys that mostly stays to himself when it comes to anyone other than his family, so Halloween night is his time to shine and I just love it. :O). Plus I think it will make great memories for our kids about their Dad as well.  If you've lasted this long I just want to say "Thank you all"  I get to share my crafty side all the time, but now you know my DH has one as well.
     Wow, have I yabbered on.  Hope you all have a great Saturday and I will talk at you later.
