Medieval Castle

I know I have posted time and time again that the yard is the kids domain. They "steal" the recycling trash and make inventions. Every few weeks I have to scour the castle and other hidey spots in my yard for the trash. They even take stuff out of the trashcans to create lemonade stands, garage sales, or play house. I think they were in hog heaven when we remodeled the kitchen last summer and they got to color and draw all over 30+ cabinet boxes.

We recently found an old Halloween skeleton. It was tossed onto the porch to await the next trip out to the trash. But as I just looked outside I discovered the castle decorated with bones. Its like a warning to the rest of the neighborhood; don't trespass or we will maim you. It looks so much like the castles in those movies where they put skulls on the top of the turrets to warn passer-byers.

Don't worry neighbors. The only fear you have is a bunch of kids yelling hi and waving. Oh and they might steal your trash and decorate my yard with it.
