For the moment, I've dug out my Halloween stuff! It makes me happy to get it out every year and add a new piece now and then. (I apologize for the poor pictures, I have yet to master -heck, even attempt to learn - taking pictures indoors without the flash- maybe someday).
The kids love running around the house finding where I've tucked things
It seems to change each year
Amazingly enough, everyone is staying out of the jars of candy (so far) although they're all eyeing up the orange slices...those might not last long
And finally, I had the kids paint new pictures for the frames above the sliding door in the kitchen. I asked for 'Fall' pictures in oranges and browns.
Evie gave me a dragon balancing a pumpkin on its tail; Sarah painted a dinosaur playing with an alligator in mainly green colors. William is the only one who actually followed my suggestion, his pumpkin patch makes me very happy! And Jason? just wasn't into the whole thing. He refused the crayons I was pushing towards him and substituted his own. Such is life with a two year old.
There are a few more things not out yet, and I want to make a ribbon wreath for the door, maybe this weekend. October is a HUGELY busy month, what with soccer, 3 birthdays (all us girls have our birthdays this month!) and Halloween. Add in other fall festival-type things and it's a whirl-wind. I'm flying by the seat of my pants and need to finish this post up so I can go make Sarah's cake - little girl turns THREE tomorrow! Where has the time gone??
