Neighbors Jack-O-Lanterns

One of our neighbors uses the shallow carving technique to create beautiful designs. A real treat to see them lined up in the yard. 


The steps

 The little flags by the skeleton went across the steps and hooked on the railing. I think this was after the first batch of kids. Getting ready to put more treat bags out.

The kids and some gown ups were disappointed they could not come up on the porch to visit. It does make me wonder why I wrapped the ball garland with lights and then tinsel. It took hours to unwrap/untangle all of it and store it today. Rain tomorrow and I had hoped to take down the scarecrow and store him only I was tired after taking down all the porch decor.

The day after

It was a busy day getting ready for the socially distanced trick or treating. Blocking off access to the porches and setting up the candy area on the steps. The kids really loved carefully choosing the treat bag design they wanted. The neighbors were decorated with lights and they had a party for their first Halloween in the new house. 

There were only 3 houses with candy sitting out and parents were happy to see all of us so close together. The county health department advised that no trick or treating should take place this year. It was so dark with all the porch lights out. We gave out about 30 treat bags. No one was out after 8:30 so it was a quiet night.
