The stores have stocked Halloween stuff! IT’S MY MOST FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR! (I am really glad they waited until after Labor Day, though. I’m pretty sure last year they replaced Back to School with Halloween before school even started, which is insanely stupid.) We really can’t afford to buy much, but I picked up a couple little things on Saturday.
Grace did not like the Halloween aisles. She kept saying “It too scary!” We are looking into the possibility that she was switched at birth. (Is that even possible for a baby born on the living room floor? Never mind.)
On Sunday I begged Will to let me start decorating. He said no, because it was only September 16th. Then I went upstairs and happened to see that he was still logged into the computer with iTunes playing his Christmas playlist. So we started decorating for Halloween.
(It was brought to my attention after I took this picture that the haunted house on the right is backward–the candle should be in front, to cast a shadow on the wall. Oops.)
(Also, it really bothers me that there is a Shirley Jackson novel missing from my collection, but it’s a little overpriced so I won’t be adding it anytime soon.)
