Serpents, Lizards, Tail of a Rat

I put my Fall decorations out at the beginning of September and while I was doing it I kept eyeing my Halloween decorations...I decided to just go ahead and put them all out at once. Because of this I've been so into decorating the house for Halloween. I literally would not mind at all if my house could look like the Haunted Mansion at Disney for the next month and a half!!! And a visit to Martha online didn't help either...I have been inspired!!! NOBODY does it better than Martha!!...

Large cat silhouettes are being made to put in unsuspecting places...

Hilarry has been glittering pumpkins for years and I've always wanted to join in the fun....and I finally did, except mine are black...so scarrrry!!...

We now have a bat wall also...

On our kitchen table we also have a witch's brewing station with old bottles labeled with spine chilling ingredients...

While decorating Rett looked at me and said,"Mommy, stop decorating it's starting to freak me out."....I think that's a sign I need to stop!! I surely don't want my kids frightened to be in their own house!!


The best Halloween book EVER for kids....We have spent so much time sitting together to find spooky skulls, bats, scorpions, frogs, etc.

Although all the pages are beautifully spooky enough to be framed, this is by far my favorite...I want to walk down this street and go trick-or-treating...

Yay for glittering pumpkins!!!!! I am going to AZ for conference and I'm going to glitter up a storm with the girls while P is at the Saturday night sesh.

I wish we lived side-by-side. Then you could decorate my house for me and I could talk you into buying things you don't need!
