Halloween Decorations

Halloween Pumpkins, Corn husks and stalks, mini gourds, orange ribbon, apples, all good things to decorate for Halloween.   We all like to have fun decorating with all the fall bounty that is available.  I need to ask you to be careful and take your time.  This morning my daughter was at her church helping to decorate the fellowship hall because tomorrow is Homecoming Day at her church.  In her haste, she fell over a large pumpkin located on a walk way and hurt herself quite badly.  She fell on her face and hands.  She has a knot on her head, her eye is black, her chin is badly bruised.  Has a big knot on her elbow and broke her right hand.  She is very lucky that  she  didn't do more damage.

Again, I urge you to please enjoy your decorating but be careful in all you undertake to do. It is so easy to get in a hurry and hurt yourself.  Please have a wonderful day and be careful!!!!!!

I forgot to mention, she is the Church Pianist.  Good Luck!!
