Halloween Cake!

Russ and I are going to a Halloween party and I thought I would put my new cake decoration classes to the test. I wanted to make a Halloween cake and I could not for the life of me figure out what to put on the cake, so Russ went on the Internet and found a cake with these goblins on it, so I thought that looks simple enough. So here it is! My first Halloween cake.
We hope you all had a very nice Halloween!
Love, Lisa & Russ!

House, Before & After

Can you see what Russ had done today?
Some guy came by and asked if there was anything that we needed done around our house that he could do for us and Russ said, YES! You can cut down this tree.
I loved that tree, but it was messy.
It was a holly tree and it would drop sickers and berry's all over the ground.
And it was rubbing on the roof. It does look better. Now my fountain will not get so dirty.
Anyway... It's gone now.
