Congrats to the six winners of a set of Kollage double points! Those who entered the contest told us all about their favorite or least favorite Halloween decorations. And the randomly chosen comments/ers are:
My all time favorite decoration is the jack-o-lanterns I carve to set along the walkway to my front door. Most are done with patterns so the flying witch is usually placed closest to the door so it goes with my witch costume! - Kay L
My favorite Halloween Decorations were the huge balloons that Mom hung from the overhang near the front door --part of the "TREAT" was to be able to take a whack at one balloon with the stick. If you were lucky, there'd be some change amidst the candy and confetti -- not so luck would be finding the one that hid the water balloon! Our house was a hit for many years. - Leslie Fehr
Carving pumpkins. Now that my kids are older, we don't do it anymore. Miss decorating.- Suzan Tiemroth-Zavala
My favorite Halloween decorations are leaves on the ground that trick-or-treaters shuffle through on their way from house to house!- Teresa
i'd egg the spider/spider web decor put up, if i could stand to look at them to aim. i'd like to win a set of square needles and give them a try; thanx for the chance to do so. - Rita in Alaska
Worst decorations ever: plastic blow ups. - Allise

It's going to be a busy week here- I swear, when I was a kid Halloween was a one-day event. MAYBE two, if there was a school costume parade in the hallways. Now? NOW? Three to four evenings. And we aren't even going to the Zoo Halloween anymore b/c they have it just during the day and SOME OF US WORK WEEKEND DAYS, mean zoo event planners. Now, I'm not complaining about the candy, really, as James is much too young to eat 4 days worth of candy and it has to be eaten by someone. Or sometwo. Joe and I have an unspoken deal that he gets the peanutbutter/peanut candy and I get the cookie/wafer type candy. Think Reese's vs. Twix. But by the end of the week, I'm going to need an evening just to sit on the couch and veg out with my knitting. And likely a new project as I'm closing the toe today on my Halloween socks made from this.
What's happening to trick-or-treating for those of you on the east coast? Has the bad weather hit yet and are you hoping that its gone by the 31st? I hope everyone stays safe!
