DIY // Spooky Skeleton Pumpkins

DIY / Spooky Skeleton Pumpkins

We are all about Halloween here at Casa de TDC. But, we have a couple of cutie boys who are still rather young. So while this little mama likes a bit of the macabre when decorating for this festive occasion... these boys of mine still need a more toned down version of spooky decor and so I give you my latest idea and the spooky skeleton pumpkin. Spooky yet not spooky, if you know what I mean.

I know these pumpkins might seem difficult or time consuming, but with one super helpful tool, this project is really easy and goes quickly... Read More

Teen burglar parties in someone else's Placerville home, hours after being released


It appears a 19-year-old decided to celebrate after being released from jail, in someone else's Placerville house. Just three hours after being released from jail, he was booked right back in.

Last Wednesday evening, a couple came home to find the 19-year-old, identified as Tryston Alvarez-Ross, walking out of their home. The couple detained Alvarez-Ross as they surveyed the damage.

According to investigators, the home was ransacked; the TV was turned on, alcohol was consumed, clothes belonging to the suspect were found on the floor and he was wearing a pair of the female victim's pants. The bathtub had also been defecated in. 

The couple said they were only gone from their home for a few hours, during which time Alvarez-Ross allegedly did this damage.
