Happy Halloween to everyone!
I got pretty burned out on Halloween when I was raising my kids. Five costumes and five pumpkins and trick-or-treating will do that. We didn’t usually decorate the yard much, although I do remember using some flower bed dirt to make a grave mound one year. But the dirt was already there because I was planting a whole new bed, it’s not like I dug it up for that purpose. Personally, I can take it or leave it. When I’m not at work that evening, I spend time over with my kids, who do things up right, starting several months in advance. Given my lack of enthusiasm, I’m a bit mystified about how involved my now-grown kids are. My boys especially really go for the creepy stuff.
Since I don’t have photos yet of the pumpkins and so forth, I might put some more pictures up tomorrow. Or we might just move quickly on to Day of the Dead or All Saints.
