Spooky Mondays - Ghosts of Halloweens Past

To start off my first Spooky Monday hosted by Wendy at Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland.  SPOOKY MONDAYS can be anything spooky, or halloweenie, or fall.  I decided I would visit some past Halloweens - maybe I need to go through the non-didgital photos to find more Halloween things.  But first up a photo I took of a photo from my childhood (the good ole sixties!).  That's me on the right as Cinderella with my syblings.  I can remeber how excited I was to have a store-bought costume!

I love carving pumpkins - around here it is so humid, that it can be touch and go how long a pumpkin will actually last once it's carved.  Usually I wait until a day or so before Halloween before carving, but I think the one below I actually carved for my neighbor (she's a vet) a couple of weeks before Halloween.

Finally, my favorite one to carve - I think I have carved this same one almost every year for over a decade- The Headless Horseman!

Please visit Wendy to see all the other participants for Spooky Monday and join in on the fun yourself!
