I’m just going to come right out and say it: We are not really Halloween people. Yes, we’re all about candy, treat or treating and, well, candy. Oh and candy. But when it comes to being crafty, sewing our own costumes or even putting up decorations, we as a group, suck. My kids don’t suck really because if it was up to them, our yard would be full of spooky crap hanging off of trees and bushes. We’d have all that fake spiderwebby cotton every where and pumpkins with flickering eyes greeting people from every window. But my children are not going shopping for this stuff and therefore it’s up to me.
I am the one who officially sucks. I have the coupon app for Michael’s craft store but that’s as far as it goes. And as a family, we are creatures of habit when it comes to dressing up. Elby has been the same thing or nothing for years in a row and the twins have basically followed in her non-trying-new-things footsteps. But in a way I find this incredibly comforting because you know what? We are way more into Christmas! Yeah! That’s when we’re really going to go all out! We will be the talk of our neighborhood! People will drive in from other towns just to see what we’ve done with our yard and rooftop! We’ll have a big old Santa Clause pulling a bunch of reindeer, fake snow everywhere, lights circling every palm tree and possibly…some other stuff. Yeah, some other Christmasy stuff that I will research and then assemble…oh dear God who am I kidding? There will be no Christmas decor. I’m going back to bed.
But first, check out my hall of Halloween throughout the years. You’ll feel better about yourselves, trust me.
