I’ve been distracted, so H.o.p. pulled out the ghosts and bats and cobwebs and plastic pumpkin lantern and green eye lights and pulled me away from the computer and purely at his behest we decorated, spreading cobwebs across the doors like fragile, moon burnt curtains. I like them and am almost tempted to leave them up.

H.o.p. Bids Adieu to The Child Experiments

H.o.p.'s 2010 Halloween

View On White
From The Child Experiments series.

H.o.p., at twelve years of age, determined that he was no longer a child and “The Child Experiments” series should have this, his 2010 Halloween costume, as its last update. And I agree with him. The majority of “The Child Experiments” photos were done between 2004 and 2007, most being in 2006. H.o.p., of course, was always playing and “experimenting at” but the making of the occasional photo record had run its course before 2008.

H.o.p.’s 2010 Pumpkins – 4 Views

This year we have 3 pumpkins for the windows. H.o.p. designed the faces for all three, and on the 3rd one he had 3 faces but I was unable to get a decent pic of the 3rd face–not that these are decent pics, taken in a dark room, as they were, with my 3g.

The Book Sale – 2 Views

The other day H.o.p. painted a ghost on a board for a children’s activity at the book sale. As he was conscripted to go out and help with it as well, we made the trip out to Alpharetta, where I got a nice shot of this little girl in her fairy costume sketching on the board H.o.p. had painted. We also assisted in the making of a scarecrow, not the one shown sitting to the right of the girl. H.o.p. did the head for that one several years ago and it’s been a Halloween book sale staple since.

H.o.p. Paints a Ghost for the Friends – 2 Views

It was requested that H.o.p. paint a ghost for a children’s activity at the upcoming Friends’ book sale. H.o.p. actually isn’t used to painting. He draws. I’ve tried to do some painting with him, and his grandmother has given him a lot of painting supplies, but it isn’t something that he seeks out at this point.
