Halloween decorationsMy daughter and son-in-law, who live in Huntsville, Huntsville, AlabamaAlabama, wanted to decorate their front porch with something fun, scary and inexpensive for Halloween. This is the first year they’ve had a front porch and the first year their son, 18-month-old Capt. Adorable, could sort of get into the Halloween mood. Money and time were their main limitations, and I think they nailed it. Of course it helps to have a talented and skilled artist in the family — my son-in-law created the spooky light cover in 30 minutes with plain ol’ construction paper, tape and staples. And they bought the oversized fake spiders and spider-webs at a discount store and already on sale … to make way for Christmas decorations, I guess. They’re working on a haunted-house jack-o-lantern for the finishing touch and then they’ll be ready for trick-or-treaters. Still no decision on the Captain’s costume. My daughter, a vegetarian who’s letting the Captain eat meat until he’s old enough to decide for himself, is toying with the idea of wearing a vegetable-themed T-shirt and dressing the Captain up as a hamburger. Adorable!

  1. Nice decorations…I’m sporting live cob webs now! Halloween is pretty non existent here, already have Xmas candy out! But I did find a pumpkin. I can’t wait to see the Cap’t in his costume.

  2. I also like what your daughter and son-in-law did with their front porch. Creativity – the mother of invention.

  3. Thank you all! I think this is one talented family, although I do admit to some bias. And I also think that we should all have a blogging Halloween party and post costume pics!

  4. My kid is the artist in my home six and way more talented than me. I am in awe of her. I hope one day she’ll cook too LOL
