Here are some Halloween villages from Yankee Candle:



My favorite piece is the "Wretching Pumpkin Diner" on the right side of the picture.

Good evening,

It has been a long night, I made chili, cleaned up and then edited and loaded most of my photos on to my albums here at MMC for the Blossoms thread, I did add six posts of photos to the Blossoms of Yankee Candle.
I am beat, and I work early tomorrow.

I also watched the Red Sox win a heck of a game tonight, what a series so far, 2 1-0 games, and a third nailbiter of a game.


I hope you all had a great day.

Have a good night.

Then I killed some time walking through a pawn shop. You can get some killer deals on tools there!

I got home just in time to put on a tie and watch Jacob get inducted into the National Honor Society. It was a nice ceremony. After that, we went to Nancy's parents' house for supper.

I hope to cut the grass today. It looks crazy!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Congrats to Jacob! That's a great honor!

I hope we like it after all the work my husband did.
Not too much going on today. I already walked the dogs and went to the supermarket for a few things. I saw a gingerbread haunted house kit while I was there. I think I may pick one up next time, they are so cute! I need to get started on some household chores soon. And my daughter has a job interview at the outlets this afternoon and I'm going to take a ride with her. There is a Christmas Tree Shop there and I always like to walk around and see what they have.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
Hoping everything worked out with her interview!
