I’m not the only one here in my area who likes to decorate for Halloween.
At Christmas we always take leisurely drives to see all the lights and decorations.
Well, we do that for Halloween, too. Cause, like I said, I’m not the only one around here who likes Halloween.
In the coming weeks I will be posting pictures of Halloween. Pictures of my decorations and those of the areas which I visit.
We had a real haunted house here on the farm when Boo was about 7 and he slept in my bed for the next 6 months.
The Moms took all the kids trick or treating. The teens and the Dads all stayed behind and decorated my house, inside and out, with the decorations I had supplied and things they either brought with them or things they made. I made them promise it wouldn’t be too scary. The kids weren’t ready for a REAL haunted house.
Do you think they listened?
The first thing that met us was a revved up chainsaw and a monster on the front porch. From a standing position, in less than a second, Boo had his legs around my waist and his arms around my neck. If he were any closer, he would have been skin!
I swore it off.
I began to involve him in the decorating. I was teaching him, in the process of decorating, that it is all fake. A big hoax. It’s just for fun.
This guy guards my haunted cemetery.
(that’s a sweat suit I painted with glow-in-the-dark puffy paint) (except for the mask)
Now he really gets into the decorating thing with me.
He’s beginning to come up with some pretty good ideas of his own.
He’s a chip off the old block.
So, do you drive around town looking for Halloween decorations, too?
