What's That I See Outside My Door???
We are having a blast decorating for Fall and Halloween this year. My lil Scarecrow "Welcome" man has been on the front porch for at least a week now. I used tracing paper to cut some simple ghost shapes and James and I gave them eyes and punched holes to hang them from yarn stretched across the room. He also has another line of "ghosts" over his bed (that he deemed are a "spooky" dark red color, lol) and some turquoise ghosts with pointy heads, where Mr Man got into my "good" paper stash to make some ghosts in my favorite color. They are my favorites indeed. :) They're stuck to the walls as opposed to the flying ghosts in my picture there.
We also have 5 orange jack o' lanterns on the walls--mine with happy faces and James's all have very scary faces indeed. I really hoped for one more "happy" Halloween as opposed to "scary," but it looks like I'm out of luck. And more decorations are on the way!
Still no idea what James is going to choose to be for Halloween this year. He was a cowboy last year, and this is one of my top 5 favorite all time pictures of him. They were playing "hot potato" in his preschool class, and I love how happy he looks in this picture. He was just giggling away!
(As a side note, they were using a Rocky Horror Picture Show record for the music, and I remember thinking at the time that maybe that wasn't the wisest choice of songs, but it was only on for a few seconds each time, so the kids weren't really listening. Plus, it was a RECORD. Who has records anymore? We don't even have CDs around!)
