Halloween-y House

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I'd share my tiny bit of creepy decor before it's put away. 

Note the tiny white ghost on the right. 

 Okay, the skull is the extent of it. But it's funny that I have it at all really. Growing up, we never celebrated Halloween but that was simply due to location (South Africa does not have the holiday). Then we moved to the US and we still did not celebrate. Two reasons (1) I was in high school already but (2) I was (am) a preacher's kid and this preacher was not so into it. Understandable ... and didn't care.

Fast forward 18 years, 3 kids, 6 grand-kids, ... we've all chilled out considerably. We dress up, we trick or treat (more pointedly, they do) and we have fun. Though I would not let them dress up as anything dripping in blood or gore, even (gasp) a vampire (though I adore them). Haha!

Though I'm pretty mellow about the whole thing I understand those that aren't. After all, I've been there, done that, heard the stories, been banned from watching care bears. Those were the days huh? Now I'm more worried about what happens on the back seat of the school bus than I am with Scooby Doo. But that's just me ...
I've never photographed the TV cause it's the most hideous spot in the house. But I've recently made an attempt to make it more likeable, folding a few blankets into it's depths and adding the goodies to the left.  Now it gives me a mild case of the shakes but at least it doesn't make me cry.
