If You Give a Kid a Camera ~ Spooky Edition







Today's edition of If You Give a Kid a Camera is brought to you by the Princess. I turned her loose with my cell phone this afternoon, and she had a blast. She mostly photographed our fall/Halloween decor. She did a great job!








This is a close-up of our spooky doorbell. When you ring it, a spider shoots out of the mouth and it talks in a scary voice. It scared the crap out of an unsuspecting UPS guy last year!


This is a non-Halloween wall decoration, it's a candle-holder.



(fake) chili peppers that hang in the kitchen.


Back to the festive stuff....this is a Halloween candle holder.



A black cat candle holder (we seem to like candle holders a lot....)




This is a wooden cat, and a wooden pumpkin sits in front of him and says "Happy Halloween".


A fall wall hanging.




A jack o'lantern....you guessed it....candle holder!




a Halloween tree I've had for many years.




This is a S'mores bat. He lights up. So cute! One of my favorite decorations.




And this is my favorite IYGAKAC picture for this week. This....is the Princess's SOCK! LOL


Here are the participants for this week's IYGAKAC:

Came to you from Angie's site and WW. These pictures are great. I like how they reflect the height of your child as she took the pictures!

AVT Coach said...

Oh, and I did not think a hunky UPS guy could be frightened.. or maybe he wasn't hunky?

Rhea said...

I love giving the kids the camera and seeing what they've taken photos of. It also makes me realize what a mess my house is!!

That doorbell looks so scary. It scared the crap out of me and it didn't even move or make noise. UGH.

I love the smores bat! I have one that is a snowman and I bring him out at christmas.

Queen of the Mayhem said...

I saw a candy dish similar to the doorbell. When you reach for the candy..the hand slaps down and says spooky stuff.

Scared the SH*T out of me...so we opted not to buy it! :)

Cute pics!

Kimmylyn said...

I totally forgot to do this.. next week I am putting it on my planner..

Love the pictures..they came out adorable!!!

Lex the mom said...

I love kid pics! & mine love to play with my camera (even if I don't love that). This week, I'm not in - but next week, I might have to hand the camera over.

Are you going to theme it or can they just be any old pics taken by the kids?

You do have some very cute Halloween decorations! I love them!

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

Your princess is a precocious photographer. Great pictures. I like all your Halloween decorations. That door bell is indeed scary. I'm not pushing that button!

Mandy said...

Love the pics, and the decorations!

Just Kim U said...

Haha! We have the same fake chili peppers! :)

Great pictures!

Jazmyn said...

These Halloween stuffs are absolutely charming.

Heather said...

Veeeery spooky pics. The kids did a great job!!

CC said...

These are great! When my son gets the camera we get lots of feet pictures and pics of the computer. Don't know why.

Caffeine Court said...

I always find interesting photos when my girls get their hands on the camera. Usually they are pictures of the dog's butt.
