the picspam to end all picpams (or: kate was being lazy and productive at the same time and that means pictures were organized - because after all, organization = productivity, right?)

this picture doesn't do it justice - the couple who live in this house put out smoke machines and sound machines, ghosts in all the trees, and can you see the grim reaper on the roof?

Mom and I love gardens. Our trip to the Huntington Gardens in November was no exception. We took a lot of pictures. We got stuck in the Japanese garden. Surprised?

So, even at thanksgiving it started to feel a lot like Christmas, especially when my dad hauled out the decorations on November 30th.
