Happy HALLoween!

31 Oct

We were very behind on our Halloween decorating this year. So far behind, in fact, that it didn’t get done till the day of. Oops!  Much of the appeal of Halloween, to my husband at least, is the scaring of poor, innocent children when they come to our door.  Here is his handiwork this year.  (By the way, I highly advise not buying any new decorations until the day of– 50% off! Holla!)

Creepy Scarecrow Dude (and yes, that’s his official name around here) was made by the husband last year.  He just gets a new face each year.  And I must say, he spent the last year on our back patio, and made a rather effective burglar deterrent.

Creepy Grudge Doll girl (yes, another official name) was kindly borrowed from my sister-in-law.  We put a strobe light under her head, and placed her looking out the window onto the front porch. Deliciously sinister!

But the main attractions of the night, of course, were Sister Bear (aka Beautiful Ballerina) and J-Bo (aka Cranky Ninja). He was exhausted from a very hard-played soccer game earlier in the day, and crashed as soon as he got home with his treats.

Sister, on the other hand, was raring to go, and used the quiet time to divide her spoils by type.  If there was every any doubt that she was a mini-Jessica, it’s gone now.  I did the same thing after every Halloween when I was a child.

And, of course, we can’t forget the Man of the Hour himself…my husband.

Isn’t he handsome?? *snort*

All in all, Halloween 2010 was lots of fun, even if we didn’t get to dedicate the time leading up to it spent in spooky pursuits as I had hoped.  But hey…there’s always next year:)

    I love their costumes! And, yeah, Creepy Scarecrow Dude is pretty much the scariest Halloween decoration I’ve ever seen. He’s going to haunt my dreams.

      Thanks, Jenny…that means a lot that you liked their costumes! My husband is still unemployed, so we went the “financially responsible” route and used costume items we already had. I thought the kids looked adorable – and maybe it was a good lesson to learn that you don’t HAVE to go out and spend $50 on a costume for one night:) And my husband got a kick out of your “haunt my dreams” comment, lol!

    ok the scariness of the creepy decorations is perfectly offset by Beautiful Ballerina and Cranky Ninja, so adorable 🙂

      Ahhh, thanks! Cranky Ninja was definitely, well….cranky. But he was back to his normal Bad Ass Ninja self after a good night’s sleep:)
