My Attempt at Halloween Decor

I admit it, Halloween is not my favorite holiday. I don't hate it, I just don't see the point in spending a lot of money or time on it. We manage to throw costumes together every year mostly with stuff we have around the house (see a few of last year's costumes here, here and here), and we have had a total of approximately 7 trick-or-treaters come to our house in the past 13 years. It's kind of hard to get excited about that.

However, I finally put up one Halloween decoration for the benefit of our mailman and the 4 other people that might come to my front door between now and the 31st. (I didn't even design it myself. The Doodlebat can be found here.) Voila.

I feel much better now. :)

I like decorating for fall--pumpkins, an autumn wreath, some cute autumn-colored chicken things on the table. But I DO NOT like Halloween. At all. We offer our kids $10 each to forgo the "celebration." They sometimes take us up on the offer but sometimes they want to do something with their friends.

I've gone the gamut on costumes--from making them, buying them (on sale) to scrounging something up. Now that my kids are older, they're on their own.

In spite of all I've said, I do think your "boo" is really cute.

I totally get you, Missy! This is how I feel. I love fall, but Halloween is not my favorite and I dread having to come up with costumes for my kids!
