My October 1st traditions include: Putting up most of my decorations, listening to Halloween music, drinking cider, baking those Pillsbury pumpkin sugar cookies, and watching The Nightmare Before Christmas. I also went to Target to buy some candy for my Halloween candy jars, black and green light bulbs, batteries, and a few other Halloween essentials :)
Here are some photos from my decorating sesh yesterday:
The hook on our ceiling was perfect for this guy! (Which I got on Nov. 1st last year for under $20!)
Witches, rats, spiders, and skulls. And my Halloween block countdown!
Our coffee table. Complete with skull goblets, a coffin, and a severed hand.
Some stickers and a mad scientist.
Stanley was intrigued by our new dinner guest! I also put out some Halloween place mats and light-up pumpkins.
Skull, witch, and vampire stakes in the yard!
A giant arachnid and some orange LED lights. October perfection.
I'll be putting more up throughout the month! Can't wait to transform our little house into a haunted mansion!
