My earliest memories of this strange, sugar coated, evening are of running to my sisters room and hiding under her bed EVERY time the door bell rang. I did this until I was about 8 years old. The whole night spooked me. (I also had a very active imagination, which did not help.)
I am more a fan now because I have kids. And my kids love dressing up.
So much fun, and so much lighter than a lot of the scary costumes we see in our neighborhood.
On to this year... my kids have been begging me to decorate for halloween. I'm just not into it. However, in our recent Family Fun magazine there was a fun purple monster wreath that I thought my kids might like to make. It was super easy. They just needed help with the hot glue gun.
Then they just wrapped the boas around the wreath and I hot glued the ends in place. Finished product...
Now if only figuring out our costumes for this year was this easy! Stay tuned for pictures...
Happy Thursday everyone!
