This year, because of our sweet new little babe, Halloween in our home has been on the back burner a bit. So when mid Oct. rolled around, A asked “Mom, when are we going to decorate for Halloween?!” So after promising them in the morning that I would indeed pull out the Halloween decor, at about 7 pm (right before bedtime) I did finally manage to make it to the back shed and unearth our box of frightful delights.
A set out creating his own snowflake pumpkins (a family favorite tradition of ours) right away and then got to work on some goulish puzzles and mazes.
While Little O, well he pretty much consumed every last minute of it. I casually began placing items here an there around the house, such as fun little spider window clings that found themselves on windows and the glass of unsuspecting framed works of art.
While doing this, Little O asked, “Mom, are you making our house haunted?”. I just love his perspective. So I replied, “Why, yes. That is one way we like to celebrate Halloween.” He just smiled his mischeivious smile. I think we have ourselves new “haunting the house” convert.
And now to just finish (or start?) those costumes…
And what about you? Do you go all out with Halloween decorations? Do you do up the yard more or go full steam indoors? Or both?! Any favorite decor stories from years gone by?
