Your house? I love it.
Yes sir... Thanks. Wouldn't you be so scared to visit?!
Mortified.I've never been trick'or'treating.
+JMJ+ You're too cool, Terry. Are those real skulls?
Nuns. Haha ... what order?
Wow... you turned it up to 11.
.... alright, Terry .... ya got sound effects yet? There is still time .... Know if I was younger I would be spooked .....Happy Haunting .... Hope you're handing out little holy cards for the young ones ... ya know like St. Denis, St. Lucy, etc.This is first year I did do one decoration ... though the candy has been set out ....
Love the nuns! Happy Hallows-eve!
awesome. You do realize this will DRAW people to trick or treat at your house, dont' you? Better have some candy on hand...just sayin'.
Terry, can I borrow that and decorate it at my parish next year
Oooo, yes.Next year, have one of the nuns pointing down to another skeleton (on the steps) with the question "Been to confession yet?" A little dry ice on the unrepentant should do nicely. ("Yes, children, he said no, and now he smokes")I live in the country. I have to decorate vicariously.
Are those active members of some of the LCWR orders?Sorry - couldn't resist.
Larry, if those nuns were members of LCWR, they will be wearing power suit or jumpsuit. These nuns are members of CMSWR.
Insecurity mocks women religious.Jackson I'm so tired of that.
LUV your decorations!!Sara
Your house is lovely. I can spot that Minneapolis stucco anywhere.
Insecurity mocks women religious.Settle down, Francis.
I'm settled- this is the internet, after all- but you're still an ass.
...but you're still an ass.I love you too, Thom.
We were going to trick or treat your house, but now I see our daughter would have been too scared to go up to your door. Bravo Terry, fine work (as usual).
But did you have Billy Idol's "White Wedding" playing?
Aneas - one little boy was too scared - I had to bring the candy down to him and then distracted him with some fireworks.
BTW - the nuns were inspired by the 'incorrupt' St. Catherine of Bologna - who sits in her abbess chair dressed in her habit. She looks like a skeleton to me.
Is the name calling really necessary? Isn't there a "Please comment with charity and avoid ad hominem attacks" admonition written in the comment window? Try looking for it.
Ah yes, it's much more civilized to passive-aggressively allude to Consecrated Women as skeletons.I totes forgot my traddy manners. :)
Thom - don't be nuts - it 'twas the eve of All Saints decorations and those were my saints - the one in black, though inspired by Catherine of Bologna is Therese - she corrupted entirely you know - she's with her sister Celine. The single figure is my homage to Billy Idol.Lighten up everyone. :)
Oh Terry I didn't mean you. I am nuts, however. :)
Oh - okay. Well, carry on. LOL! I'm nuts too.Believe me, I'm not taking this seriously anyway.FYI - that night after all the tricksters were home in bed - I assembled all the figures in the back hedge as if they were starring into the house next door. They stayed there all day. I have no idea what the neighbors thought... See - I'm nuts too.
