|Yay! He picked out a scary costume this year. Un Vampiro!|
This was the 1st year I actually decorated inside our house. Back when we were Kicking Debt's A$$, I didn't splurge on this kind of stuff. I found most of my decorations at the dollar store this year. Go me! My little decorating project turned out to be pretty cheap!
I kept the decorating a surprise and it paid off. Our son was thrilled when he saw it! (It doesn't take a lot to impress a 6 year old.) Hopefully I will continue this tradition until my son outgrows it. Heck, I may still continue it even after he outgrows it... Hubby seemed to really enjoy my decorations too. Sometimes I forget a lot of this is new to him as well.
Here's a little of what I did...
Although not spectacular, my son thought my mantle was awesome! Complete with flying inflatable bat above. (I added some additional bats throughout the house.....scary!)
Spooky tree table topper on top of a candy corn table cloth I found at Wal-Mart for (you guessed it) $1!
I made my own curtain ties with these little skeletons. Que miedo!
I couldn't forget about spiders!
or bats!! Especially since I have a little vampiro running around the house!
Halloween window decals...
I put this little amigo on the dining room table.
Our pumpkin carving experience was quite the event. I was overly ambitious and got hubby, son , and myself each a pumpkin to carve. Not bad considering World War III almost broke out and our "EEK" pumpkin turned into an "ECK" pumpkin. (Hubby carved the "eek", I mean "eck pumpkin! I let it slide since he didn't even know he made a boo-boo and I spent 15 minutes trying to explain what "eek" meant. Mine is the witch! Yes, I'm bragging!)
Son and I made some caramel apples. I was hoping it would help with a loose tooth he had but no such luck! Fall and Halloween just aren't complete without caramel or candy apples!!!
I'm going to make these today while my son is at school. Nothing like a sugary mummie cupcake right before going out to load up on candy! This actually might be a mistake. Hope he will go to sleep tonight! They were just too cute to pass up!
We hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!!!!
