I made this picture just as large as I could, so that you can see the many details that went into this Halloween display in Salt Lake City.
Notice the sails on the windows, the chain above the entry, and the ships lanterns.
The pirate theme for Halloween, is right on the mark.
I'm sure a lot of thought and a lot of work went into getting
this Halloween display, just right.
We wanted to have a little getaway, and enjoy the Fall weather, and just spend time together before the holiday season begins.
We had so much fun together!
We drove around the old neighborhoods and took pictures of great old houses.
The blue house above is just scary looking, but it were renovated, it would be gorgeous.
Looks a bit Halloween~ish now though.......
Old houses, old neighborhoods, and old buildings make me smile.
I just love old stuff!!
We shopped at City Creek Center, and ate lunch at The Cheesecake Factory.
It was our first time eating at The Cheesecake Factory.
Our daughter had gone to The Cheesecake Factory in Ohio, and she told us that we would love it. We did!
We had their grilled chicken tostada salad, and split a slice of pumpkin cheesecake.
If you've never been to The Cheesecake Factory, be warned... they serve huge portions and one dish easily can be shared!
We also got a jump on our Christmas shopping at City Creek.
It's a nice feeling to have a bit of shopping done already.
It was just 33 degrees this morning, and that was the thermometer on the porch.
Once you stepped off the porch, it was even colder.
My sweet husband snapped these pictures of the moon last night.
They are not super clear, however, if you look to the right of the moon, you will see what looks like a tornado funnel.
It was just a really neat cloud formation.
So glad that he got the picture of it, when he did.
On the way back home, we stopped by Costco, and stocked up on Halloween candy.
Last year, we had over 150 trick or treaters!! What a surprise that was after only having less than a dozen trick or treaters when we lived at the homestead.
Last year, our daughter had to make an emergency candy run, because we had more trick or treaters than we had planned on.
This year, we are ready for them..... I think......
Wishing you all a great rest of your week, and a Happy Halloween.
Just think, in a few days, it'll be November!!!
Attitude of gratitude ~
~ Feeling thankful for these last Fall days.
~Grateful for an amazing husband. I am so blessed to be married to my very best friend! He indulges me, and doesn't mind me asking him to stop the car just so I can snap a picture. What a guy!!!
~Feeling grateful that all the winterizing around here is done. I just have to plant garlic this afternoon, then that will be the last Fall chore on my list. Oh... and straightening the storage room, but that shouldn't take long, or be too bad.
