We've gone a little Halloween crazy over here. In addition to these ridiculous costumes, we've decorated our house just a bit. And when I say just a bit, I mean a lot. We have cob webs, spiders, skeletons, lights, and lots and lots of different kinds of pumpkins. The kids made most of the stuff and have really gotten a giant kick out of all of it, which was the point, so I'm happy. Decorating a house for a holiday is pretty much against everything I stand more, but I decided I didn't need my children to be bitter and cynical like their mom. I figured genetics will play a role, but a spooky, crazy halloween house might offset it a bit.
