The next few posts will be catching up on my mom's visit. We had tons of fun and I had to rest from it all for a couple of days before returning to the real world.
I am ashamed to say that before my mother arrived, I had NO Halloween decorations. It's just not a "holiday" that I really get into. But my kids adore all the creepy things that come with this non-holiday. So we made a run to Wal-Mart and bought a bunch of marked down decorations (that's the plus when you are shopping three days before Halloween!). The kids have been thrilled with the spider web on our porch. They threw a bunch of bugs and snakes and such and shrieked with joy every time one stuck.
Oh, the happiness of which I deprive them on a regular basis. Thanks for setting me straight, Mom. ;)
Trying to pose for a picture when all they really want
to do is rip that package open and get started!
The finished product!
