Scarecrow Stampede

The town we live in is trying to set a new Guiness World Record for the most scarecrows in one area.  The town needs 4000+ scarecrows to win.  We had to help, or course! So this afternoon we made three scarecrows for our front yard.
They don't have to be's more of a quantity vs. quality type of thing.

We made two lacrosse players and a ballerina.  Naturally. 
Jim made the skeletons.
As he was pounding the head of Coleman's scarecrow into the ground he said, "Coleman, sometimes I dream of this!"

We did our part!

Excellent Job Braun's! I love the front porch too! (P.S. How happy am I that I get to see them in person)

I like the last reason for the event: "To guard the festival from the crows who might gather and cause trouble..." hee hee

Those are adorable! I'm excited to get to see them too!

PS--I sometimes dream of pounding my kids too.

PPS--You realize, after I come, you have to move me to "Bloggers I know" status.
