Happy Halloween

For this year's Halloween our older son decided he wanted to wear a costume that he had worn before, that of a headless man!

This was it! (remade for this year):
He got so many compliments his dismembered head nearly swelled with pride!

...and this was his brother (with a titchy bit of special effect):
The headless costume was made from a cardboard box tube that has a hole cut out for the head.  The shirt and jacket are put around the cardboard and false hands made from gloves are attached to the sleeves.

I took a small group of boys round the houses, but we were very good and only went to houses displaying pumpkins.

We displayed our own this year. It was from a design we've seen on the internet:
Yuuuuuuuuckk!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Thanks for looking and for any comments,
