. . .we busted out the Halloween decorations today!
Old friends joined pieces we have left from the last show. The big ole sugar skull is actually a leftover from the eldest kid's 16th birthday party (we did a Dia de los Muertos theme). This is the first house we have had with an actual mantle.
It's in a weird place, and the fireplace doesn't really work,
but still yay for having a mantle!
And our TV stand (that I painted all pretty when we moved even though we ditched the TV so it became a record-player stand but then that broke) is happy to be of use.
I think it still needs a little something though.
I'm thinking a simple paper BOO banner would do the trick, like so-
I'll wait til the last minute to buy trick-or-treater candy though,
otherwise it'd be gone well before the big night.
