It's Halloween. Actually if you looked at the stores..like Target for example (not that I ever go there) you would know that Halloween has been here for a while (and Christmas is on its way). I absolutely love decorating for Halloween. I really love the fall colors. I love the costumes and good times had by all. I love the yummy treats like pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies and let's not beat around the bush...candy always equals a good time. Each year I wait until after my birthday to pull out all the decorations. This year, on Sept. 13th to be exact I was awaken by a girl asking.."Can we decorate for Halloween now?" Before I even opened my eyes, I agreed. Down came the orange totes and we placed hints of Halloween throughout the house. It was fun to watch Emily get excited about the upcoming holiday. As she pulled each item out she would get excited about it and put it in the "perfect" spot. Her enthusiasm is contagious. I cannot wait to see what the kiddos decide to be for Halloween.
This is a quilt that my mom and I made years ago. Emily decided the witch and the quilt would look good near the stairs.
