I enjoyed reading about your favorite time of the year. My favorite is Halloween. I have always loved Halloween and I am embarrassed to say I have more Halloween decorations than Christmas decorations. I love scary movies and all the things that go with Halloween, but I think it is my favorite because it is the beginning of such a fun time of year. It is just the "opening act" to Thanksgiving and Christmas. I enjoy decorating my whole house. I will swap out pictures, put fake spider webs all over the place, and set out all kinds of battery operated scenes. My kids and nieces and nephews love it! One of my nephews is a big fan and he remembers from the year before where I had something. If I change it around, he notices. I have another nephew that isn't too fond of one of my decorations. It is an awful-looking man/creature and the head makes a cracking noise as it turns all the way around. It is really scary to him. He hates it when I put it out, but he got me back a few years ago. Because of the sound it makes, he told his kindergarted teacher his aunt had a "crackhead" on her porch! That is what we call it now!
********** I am using Random.org and will announce the winner of the Target Gift Card tomorrow morning! Good luck to all of you who entered and thank you so much for participating! You can begin entering the Visa Card giveaway anytime after midnight tonight!**********
