Happy Halloween Weekend

Happy Halloween to all you Spooksters and Goblins.  For the first time in a long time we are going to have a 70 degree day for Halloween on Monday.  Woooo Hoooo!  It usually is rainy and cold and the little ghosts and goblins have to cover up the sweet costumes with coats or worse bring umbrellas.

This Halloween will be a good one in Chicago Land.

My pumpkins are ready to be carved.

My mum is opening up and embracing fall.  My last surviving flower from summer in this watering can is still hanging on for dear life!!!!

The trees are starting to finally turn.

Have a wonderful weekend and a safe and fun Halloween on Monday.  My granddaughter Abby is going to be a purple witch and her little sister Charlotte is going to be her black cat.  Should be fun.
Happy Halloween.
Kris

  6. Pumpkin carving is always fun... so glad this year your weather will be nice and give you an opportunity to meet some more neighbors. Supposed to be good weather in Philly and hopefully not too chilly�� How cute a Purple Witch and her Black Cat... cute,cute, cute! Time to rewatch Practical Magic in time for Halloween. A favorite movie for me. Take lots of photos Kris and share with us.

  15. It was 70 degrees here today and just beautiful. But tomorrow it will be back in the 50's and I think it will be spring before we have a day like today again. It's wonderful you will have such warm weather for Halloween!

  18. My friend, enjoy a wonderful time with the children and we had 70 degrees yesterday with falling leaves! I think it's supposed to be unseasonably warm for our Halloween too; that is a bit different from our typical SNOW fall on Halloween! HAVE FUN!

  19. We're going to be warm and dry too (90's). I can't remember our last cold Halloween (you're happy, I'm pouting) ha. Your mums look so pretty and that tree! Oh my, just gorgeous.
    Aw, your grands are going to be adorable! Hope you'll get to share a picture of them!
    Enjoy your lovely weather!

I can't believe that your leaves are just turning ours have turned and gone but the weather the last few days has been like summer. I love a long Fall. Have a fun filled long weekend with your family. Love ya, Jo

  33. How cute that your granddaughters are going as a witch and a black cat! Love it! That seems really warm for y'all this time of year. We're going to have a high of 86 on Halloween. That's a bit too hot for all the costume clad little ones. Maybe people should give out Gatorade with the candy. Lol!

  34. My grandgirl is too old to go trick & treating...I miss those days!!!Have fun with your grands!
    warmly,

  35. Wow, Kris, 70 in Chicago and we are going to be 86 which will be a record. Crazy crazy weather!

  36. Hi,
    We are to have great weather as well up here in Northwest Wisconsin. :-)

    I love the idea of the purple witch and black cat, how fun and creative.
    Have fun!
    Trick or Treat,
    Carla

  37. It sounds like you'll have perfect weather for Halloween, so I hope you're well stocked with candy for the ghosts and goblins! We're a few weeks ahead of you weather-wise, so our trees are almost bare and we raked up the rest of the leaves today. I hate to buy too many bags of candy, since we don't get many trick-or-treaters and I end up eating the candy bars myself.

    Your home looks so festive with your flowers and outdoor decor!

  38. Happy Fall, Kris! Yes, its very warm here.

    Love the ideas for your granddaughters...how fun!

    We need to get together! ;D

  44. So glad to hear Halloween will be good weather for all where you are. Is quite nice here also (here is few miles west of Grand Junction, CO). We've been having such lovely weather, Fall is more like Indian summer. Daughter and I both commented is like San Diego weather (lived there for 21 yrs.long time ago). Since then have lived in MT, KY and here.
    Hope you had fun Halloween along with pleasant weather.
