I LAH-UV(love) Halloween.
I get it from my mother.
So every October 1st; the spooky comes out.
My kids start asking the day that the pumpkins appear, just when the bats will show up?
My favorite is seeing their face when they come home from school, and the house is covered in the very bats they were asking for.
That’s what I did yesterday. I let the bats out of their box.
They have been cooped up for 11 long months.
And the kids? They all ran around the house, saying look at this and look at that.
The funny thing is that the majority of the creatures were bought at the dollar store.
With a little bit of gold spray paint, you can make anything look expensive.
…And gold is my new favorite color.
Creepy and pretty don’t always go together.
So because I still like things to look pretty around here; the gold spray paint helped.
My favorite thing to do is just add a little spooky here and there, and that way the house still feels like our house.
Warm and inviting. Which is what I hope for.
So if you come to visit; I hope your ok with crows, skeletons, and bats. In all their gold glory.
If you are, here is your warm invitation:
Welcome to our home.
