A couple of weeks ago the two oldest grandkids and I made a scarecrow who looked very similar to this one on the porch (only quite a bit lumpier). "Papa" acquired the 'look' last night and placed himself on the porch right before the grandkids came to trick-or-treat (we had some communication with their mom before they came). They commented as they came upon the porch that "There's the scarecrow we made." Only after ringing the doorbell, the scarecrow came to life and made three little kids jump and scream!! What fun - they'll remember that forever! We're on to Thanksgiving! Happy Fall!!
