Then as a peace offering, they left this................
I on the other hand, left millions and millions of these...............
If anything, the culprits may have twisted their ankles while tossing the toilet paper through my trees by stepping on my lovely walnuts.
So all day I have been wondering, who did this??? Some crazy friends of mine, high school kids from our church, someone I don't know??? Then, my sister calls me tonight to see what my son thought of the tee-pee, and she spilled it....SHE was the one that tossed toilet paper around my yard. And to make it worse, she taught my two nieces how to do it!!! They and my brother-in-law were in on the mission. And even better, they did it at 8:30pm while I was baking my focaccia!! They walked by my windows and saw me baking in the kitchen!! Hmm!! I'm taking back the focaccia I gave them. In return, they can have that toilet paper cardboard roll you see in the above picture....and a nut. :)

We had treat cones for all of the kids. They had glow in the dark bracelets, pumpkin gum balls, Halloween pencils, pop rocks and gift certificates to McD's. A big hit!
All of the kido's sitting outside eating the food, or at least I think they ate.
My sissy and her best friend.
My sister and girlfriend inside the "Haunted Shed" touching Joe Corely's body parts. The yucky worms that ATE him! (cooked spagetti with oil)
My son, niece and two other friends.
Joe Corely in the no flesh, but bones!
If you look close, you can see my Mom standing in the window. She was safe inside away from the walnut tree, in fear of stepping on a big nut (or getting clunked in the head with a nut). She was watching the screaming Haunted Shed.
The donut game. Can you see the falling powdered sugar from my son's face??
Making SMORES by the fire. PaPa (my Dad) was in charge of the goods. That way no child ended up with too much of a sugar buzz.

His class is creating a photo story to describe "A Day In The Life Of Me". Each child gets to bring home a camera and take 10 pictures of themselves and their daily life. My son wanted to get a picture of his whole family since we were all together. It took probably 10 minutes to gather the whole group. As soon as you would have three, one would leave to go find the other. Then another would mosey into the living room after everyone kept yelling at the top of their lungs. FINALLY, everyone arrived, but then we couldn't figure out how to work the camera. I kept pushing the wrong buttons which would take pictures of the group, minus me. My brother-in-law (the technical savvy one of the family) decided he better take a look. He finally got it and before we knew it, the camera's timer was going off and it flashed the second he got back into the group.
We were all laughing so hard, it didn't turn out the best, but you know it is a picture that best suits us. A bunch of goof-balls that love being around one another and enjoying all of the little bits of time we get with one another. I would share the picture with you, but I look the worse out of them all.
I hope you get to spend fun times with your family too.

They had the pretties Mum's too, so bright and full of fall colors.
The kids not only enjoyed picking out some pumpkins, they loved playing in the hay maze.
I liked this big guy....is he an owl???
After we left the pumpkin patch we headed for Amish country. There are some of the neatest groceries with home baked goodies and other treats you must try. On our way to one of them, we passed these fellas. They were standing next to the fence as if they were waiting for someone to come by and visit with them. Or, they were watching the horse and buggy rush hour go by. Either way, we all had a good chuckle.
Our day to the Pumpkin Patch was a lot of fun with new memories had. I know we will go back. That big chubby pumpkin is still calling my name. :)
