Ben asked why we had so many "cute" Halloween decorations. "Mom, Halloween is supposed to be scary." Alan picked up on this and followed me around saying, " OOO, Mom, that's so scaring".
So the smiling Jack-o-Lanterns stayed in the Halloween tote because only the really "scaring" decorations met with Ben's approval. He hit up Dean for some cash to go buy more decorations because the ones we have aren't spooky enough. We decided to compromise. He gets to make a small list of new purchases and I get to put out a few cute things.
Even the creepy child's bust got some new fangs for the season.
Tricks and treats and happy haunting to all you Goblins and Ghouls.
He's decided it's his favorite holiday...mine too.
