PHANTOMS IN THE PLAYHOUSE?

I am trying to catch up
since our seminar weekend.
I off-loaded the pictures from 
my camera today 
AND
it appears that there might be a
Phantom hanging out around 
The Playhouse.

Do you see it here?
Is it in the window?
Nope!
Why are they laughing?
Do THEY see the PHANTOM?

Is this the phantom?
Nope!
That is just Papa/MyHero.
He is in his 2nd childhood and
has taken up volleyball.
Is the phantom IN the volleyball?
Nope!

Now! Do you see it now?
Look at that black arrow-
Upper left hand side of the picture.
THAT is what makes this a PHANTOM!
When we hung the skeleton up all his limbs
were hanging down straight.

We didn't notice that 
THE PHANTOM
was waving at the camera
until after we took the pictures.
Now you know why I decorate for FALL
instead of Halloween.
Weird things happen around here.
That waving skeleton is 
kinda creepy, huh?

Not NEARLY as creepy as THIS though!
Click on image for a tutorial.

I'll be creeping around to visit you myself later
to say BOO!

You don't suppose the phantom has one of those innocent little girl smiles, do you? Maybe they were pranking their grandparents? Very cute!

Oh my, Diana, that is kind of spooky...The wreath is indeed creepy - I think my sister would like it. She loves Halloween. :)

Adorable, sweet girls! You sure have some cute grands.

It is very creepy at the Playhouse, but it looks kind of fun too! Lovely FALL decorating.

Susie said...

Diana, I love your play house. The girls seem so happy. I think maybe one of them has made the skeleton wave. Hope you aren't getting snow. It looked pretty close to you on the weather map. xoxo,Susie

So cute and creative! Ha, the Phantom around here is the "not me ghost". Apparently, he is to blame for everything!!

I see the phantom- very spooky! The girls are adorable! I love your hero for spending time with them too! I think I could live int the playhouse; it's so cute! You might have to call ghost busters first though.

Beth said...

I saw the phantom! Very creepy.

Your granddaughters are just so darn cute!

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

OK Creepy....Jordan (my oldest) and I were looking and looking trying to figure out what the heck you were talking about...time to say bye bye....

Ricki Treleaven said...

I love reading books about creepy characters, but I don't like seeing anything creepy like your phantom skeleton! But I do like seeing Sweet Cheeks and her minions!

I wish we lived closer. I think you and your grand girls would love to visit our Halloween party! Sweet cheeks and Josie could stir up trouble all night long!

The girls look like they know something that we don't know! Every playhouse needs a phantom!

Linda said...

LOL I did see the skeleton's arm, but I read/skim kinda quickly so I thought it WAS in the window. I am thinking the girls may have had something to do with the 'phantom'.... :-) grands do that once in a while.

Amber said...

I much prefer Fall to Halloween, myself. It makes it hard since hubby is a giant kid and likes to "go all out" so a few days before Halloween, we'll put the spooky stuff out. Apparently our end of the road is where they all come because the neighbor puts out all the stops. Greeeaaat.....

Angela Ryder said...

Awesome! I bet you and hubby played that up with your grandbabies!!! LOL!!--Angela

My Garden Diaries said...
