Scariness...

No, I haven't fallen off the planet. I've been busy. I seriously don't know how the supermoms out there do it. Life is just too crazy sometimes. Between soccer practice, cub scouts and life in general, I hardly have time for myself. I'm just now catching up with housework and have finally taken some pictures of my Halloween decorations.

Meet Matilda...




This was Matilda's mother, until she turned her into a pumpkin.

They are placed happily on my front entryway table.

This is Bruce. He is happy I let him stay inside this year.

This picture is for Shaila at de Bergs. She loves clocks and I promised her I would post a picture of my Halloween clock. At every hour it makes scary, haunting sounds. It scares me almost every time.

Here is my cat from Cherry at Cherry's Jubilee. He sits on my entertainment center.

This little lady hangs out in the bathroom. The one that gets the most action.


My MIL used to buy us stuffed Halloween characters every year. They sit inside this basket by the front door.



And now for the REAL scary stuff....


This is me 4 wheeling last
weekend.

Feel free to enter this photo into the next America's Top Model contest. I'm sure it's a winner. ;-)

While 4 wheeling with my family my youngest found a tarantula. He was so excited. My father, who is a real outdoors man, caught it for
a photo and then let it back into the wild. Now, that is scary!



Last but not least...

Taking a picture of oneself in the mirror seems t
o be the blog thing lately.

Plus, I really don't want you to remember me by the 4 wheeling picture. Yucky!

Love the hair....looks good. Four wheeling is fun but oh so dirty. We have quads and motorcycles and I've learned to be dusty for a little while. We have so much fun. I tagged you for a meme on my blogsite....Connie

What a fun picture of yourself through the cobwebs!
And I adore the new clock below! I wish we had a Hobby Lobby nearby - Michaels just doesn't have half the cool home interior stuff!

Chris said...

Really really nice Halloween decorations. Don't know about that tarantula, that's a little scary. Thta's a cute shot of you at the end of your post.

Hugs,
Chris

Connie said...

So you've got another Connie fan. How fun. I agree, how do these Mommy's do it? Not sure because I'm obviously not one. (You should see my house.)

Glad your back and the spider...oh my, I don't think I would have gotten that close.

Darlene said...

Hi Brandee,

I LOVE all your witches!! They are great. Your whole decorated home looks so FABULOUS!! I LOVE everything about it. That clock is really neat!

I can't believe he was holding that spider...YIKES!!!

I bet you had a blast 4-wheeling!!!

duchess said...

Love the decorations - wish I had those cute witches to put around.

That spider thing freaks me out and the photo in the mirror thing is harder than it seems. (you never know where to look.):)

Shannon said...

I love the picture with the spider webs!! :)

All your spooky decor is so cute! I love it!

Rambling Girl said...

Love your haircut! I remember you said you were getting it cut. We love riding our four wheeler in the woods behind our home. Just neat Halloween stuff. Matilda is cute!

KELLY said...

Just finding your blog, I love your decorations. I have never been four wheeling, but it looks so fun!

Lisa Ann said...

I love Matilda and her mother. Great decorations!

HeathahLee said...

Oh, my, that tarantula (the real one, not the one in the entry!) about did me in. He is one brave man...

Hopped over here from Brandi's place...I'll have to explore a little bit more! : )

Sarah said...

Your Halloween decorations are great! That tarantula wa scary...I would have freaked out...I am so not a spider person. :)

Meg said...

The taranchula (spell?) was too much for me to handle! I think it's hilarious that the clock sounds scare you every time! haha

Tamara Jansen said...

Love all the decorations....how do you store all these treasures when it's time for the next season?!

Mabry's gamma said...

Love the "scary" decorations and I love Matilda's name, she is cute.

On another note...I did not know that tarantulas were so light, for some reason I thought they were dark brown or black???

Strawberry Blonde said...

I love the four wheelin' picture. You look like a renegade bandit or something. Though, you do clean up nicely. :)

As for the Halloween spooks, great job. We don't decorate for Halloween, so it's fun to see others. I love your little old ladies. They make me smile and I would jump every time your clock went off, too. Scary sounds are, well, scary.

Sandy Toes said...

Amen sister! I have all that stuff too...if I die just bury me in my Town and Country!!! I have been crazy this week!

Love all your fun decor...I could do without the spider on the hand...aren't they poison?

Sarah said...

da Bergs said...

I LOVE Matilda, she is WAY cool!!! AND, of course the clock!!!

You are too darling! Did you get a hair cut? CUTE!!!

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

Of course I love ALL your haloween decorations especially Matilda :-) I think you are one of the most creative person I've encountered in Blogland with a really classy style. Entering your blog is like entering an upscale boutique store, with crafts beautifully and tastefully displayed. I love it. And I love that you included the 4-wheeling photo. It's awesome to see that side of you.

The spider. Aaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!! Not a big fan. Hate the crawly feeling on my arms!

Sher's Creative Expressions said...

Matilda is such a cutie witch!!

Love your hair for 4 wheeling too.

Blessings,

Sher

Ginger said...

Cute blog!!! I love how you name all your decorations...Bruce the spider? Too funny. I told my daughter about your blog. She is not a blogger, but read every one of yours and loved it. She thinks your home is beautiful. We both think you have a great personality that shines through when you write.

Ms. Tee said...

Oh, cute decorations - love Matilda the pumpkin. :) You're so adventurous to go 4-wheeling!

Laura said...

I love your witches! They are too cute and I love that you have named them, ha! I would never have been able to get close enough to that tarantula to take it's picture, yuck!

Have a great weekend!

Laura :)

Cherry's Jubilee said...

Wow........you got some spookilicious goin on! Love it all! cherry

Kitty Scraps said...

Looks like you were having fun 4 wheeling, I've never ever been, can you believe it?

And of course your home is amazing! I love your Halloweeen decorations. I'm so bummed I've not been home to decorate, maybe I can fix that this weekend. Love your self protrait!

Laura said...

Ooh, that's a good trailer! I cannot wait to see it, but I am still not convinced he is a good Edward. We will have to see. I noticed while watching, he has facial hair, I didn't think their hair grew, must have had it when he was changed. It will be interesting to see the criticisms that the movie gets, it will be very hard to match the book and please people. I'm sooo excited!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Your decorations are ADORABLE!

Love the photo of you~ you look so adventurous!

I am on post #99 so stay tuned. :)

Ros said...

Matilda's mother is my favorite... And by the way, I think you look like Kris Munroe on the quad sleuthing down a case for Charlie!

Kelli said...

Your decorations are wonderful...I love how Matilda's mother was turned into a pumpkin! LOL Oh, that spider is scary...no way would I touch it!

Tausha said...

Cute picture of yourself! Your hair is shorter than in your profile pic. It looks cute short.

I love your decorations, especially those adorable witches!

Susie Harris said...

Your house looks just perfect! I love all the spider webs...too cute. I bet the kids love coming over to play, smile! Oh girl we should both enter the contest. I have some great hunting shots of myself. Me and camo....to die for, smile~

momof3azkids said...

I can't believe someone was holding the tarantula! True scariness...I agree. Love all your Halloween decor.

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Your decorations are fabulous! I love how you put up "cobwebs" on the mirror, and also over the frames~ very cute! Everything looks wonderful. And I love the cat/box decoration! :)

Have a beautiful day! :)

Liz said...

What great decorations! But that tarantula... ugh. Heebie Jeebies. :)

Linda said...

Your decorations look great! I looked at the pictures before I read the text and I thought that spider was part of the decor. I can't believe he actually held it yuk!! Pretty cool to find one though I guess.:)
Blessings,
Linda
