Since I’m a little too old for trick-or-treating these days, and not quite old enough to have any trick-or-treater’s of my own, one of my favorite parts about Halloween is decorating the house. Every year I go into the garage and haul out the boxes, hoping I won’t find any REAL spiders when I pull everything out.
A lot of the decorations are sentimental, I have a hair-sprayed cheese-cloth ghost hanging in my kitchen that I made when I was five. The Spooky Houses on my mantel are from the first Halloween I spent in my house. Some were fun projects – last year I made the mice cut-outs above the bookshelf between the dining room and the living room, and the bats for the lamp shades. Put together, I think they make the house feel cozy and festive for the Halloween season!
Here are some pictures to get you in the Halloween Spirit:

I was hoping to post some shots of the outside today too, but I haven’t carved any pumpkins yet (didn’t want them to rot before Halloween!) so it’s not quite finished :)
Do you decorate for Halloween? What is your favorite Halloween activity or decoration?
