It's Time

Taking down the Christmas trimmings is always a chore. I'm starting to feel the same way about the Halloween decorations. Yes, it's a chore to put them away, but more so, I like having them up.

Maybe it's because I was born on Halloween, but looking at them everyday just makes me smile. I don't put up anything really scary. In fact, my giant spider is more friendly than frightening. The crows are more cute than creepy. For whatever reason though,  I feel cozy and content among these creatures.

BSD and I were just discussing when we should tackle this project...

Me: We should probably start thinking about taking down the Halloween decorations.

BSD: Yeah, that's a good idea. When do you want to do it?

Me: When we get the Christmas tree...

But, it's already November 5th, and the Jack-O-Lantern is starting to shrivel and mold. I guess we better get packing. We don't want to be THOSE PEOPLE who keep their Christmas lights up all year long.



No, that would just be batty!

Just ask the Little Ballerina.

Oh my gosh, I love your description of yourself. Isn't that what we're all doing? Trying to figure out who we're going to be?

And for the record, those pictures are hilarious.

I love the batty pics, especially the one of the little ballerina with her head in the bucket. Hubs took our Halloween deco down the next day. We aren't allowed to decorate for Christmas until the day after TG.
