I forgot to show you

I forgot to show you that I made this big spider web for Halloween: 

It's about 2' across and took more yarn and time that I thought it would  to make. I have even more respect for all those spiders - how do they produce so much silk from such a tiny little body! And to think they spend a whole day making one just to have the wind, or a big animal, or us blast through it and toss it away. This is no easy task! 

My decorations were down on November 1st -but then spend several days in the car port drying out - I couldn't put them away wet and who knows when it would dry out around here! 

One month of a plain yard and then it's time to start the Christmas decorations! I'd like to put up something big but these inflatable things have noisy fans/motors and I don't want to listen to that all day since the room I work in faces the front and we only have single pane windows so I can hear everything. I tell you, I was regretting putting up my Halloween decorations two weeks early when the wind was whipped the decorations agains the house and I had to endure endless banging and flashes from the spooky "caution tape" as it flapped in the wind. 

What do you put up for outside Christmas decorations? 
Any suggestions?
