Last Minute Spooky Fun

We have been so busy that Halloween kind of snuck up on us. Tonight, we are going to have a mini get together and hand out candy to the kids. I made my own poison labels using clip art and a colored printer. My work […]

Pumpkin House of West Virginia

Every Halloween season Ric Griffith and hundreds of volunteers carve thousands of pumpkins for display at his home. The house is completely transformed into the Great Pumpkin house.
