Happy Day of the Dead! Now’s the time for you to go visit any family members buried in cemeteries. Clean up their gravesite and leave some pretty flowers or a little pumpkin.

Check out these lovely Day of the Dead skulls and skeletons. You can’t deny they are perfect Halloween decorations. Or in my case, year round decorations (in my world, everyday is Halloween) – here’s one I picked up one summer at the beach with friends.


Some fun skulls I found on the web:

We interrupt our regularly scheduled program…

Look what the UPS man just dropped off:

caramel apples from Sherm Edwards Candies

Yummy caramel apples from Sherm Edwards Candies. It’s probably too late to order some apples for yourself but they’ve got a ton of other tasty treats for you. Everyone at OrangeYouGlad loves getting packages from Sherm Edwards!

Thanks Dave!
