Hey, you decorated! We just put the scarecrows and pumpkins in the garden. :)

Yeah, I decided to do something this year. The scarecrow is new, and the 'witch parking' sign. Since we don't get any trick or treaters, I haven't done much in the past, but some of this stuff I can leave up through Thanksgiving!
