Thirty-One Loves of October
Day 8: Halloween Decorations

I just love all of the Halloween decor I see every where. It makes the season all that more special for me. I love Halloween and love the spirit about it. I love seeing the kids in the neighborhood look at the real looking mummy in my window and hear their murmurs when they ride their bikes by. It puts a smile on my face. Or hearing my own kids "ooh" and "aah" over other people's decorations when drive by. It means that the hard work of decorating paid off.


  1. I like seeing all the Halloween decor, too! It's fun to drive around and see what people have created in their yards.

  2. I love Halloween decorations, too! I don't really see much people use 'em where I am, though...

  3. I long for a lovely home with some land around it, so I can make a "haunted house" for peeps in the neighborhood to visit. I want a pack of dogs, too. Maybe someday...
