I finished putting up our Halloween decorations. There is actually more but I only decorated the foyer because Violet can't get to it. Maybe next year we can add the rest.
Made this two years ago. It was actually supposed to go on the outside of the door but when I got done and hung it I couldn't shut the screen door. Doh!
I finally bought the Martha Stewart paper mice. I was going to cut them out myself but found these 40% off at Michaels.
Our Haunted Memories portraits went up four years ago for Halloween and never came down. Most people think they are just more of our family portraits like we have going up the steps. It's fun seeing peoples reactions. That's why we've left them up all year long. These linticular images are by far the best ones out there!
You can kind of see the spooky side of them in this pic.
Black feather wreath with a crow. Added the bows.
Pumpkins from Hallmark over a two year period. The owl I found at an antique mall five years ago.

I finally got the elastic on Violet's crown last night. I tried it on her this morning and she did pretty good with it. No screaming or grabbing at it. It lasted on her head for a couple of minutes. When I took it off she kept grabbing at it and saying hat. So maybe if we practice wearing it between now and picture time she'll keep it on longer so we can get a good shot.

Violet has a new favorite spot.

Waving to the trees.

Violet loves to play with the curtains. She'll stand there and laugh. She think it's funny. Maybe she thinks she's hiding but thinks it's funny that she can see us.
