At the start of this month I had the greatest intentions to lug the Halloween decorations out of storage. As of tonight, they are still safely tucked away and we are officially the party pooper house. Not only do we not have any decorations, I haven't gotten a pumpkin yet, and we have no candy! We have no graveyard adorning our front lawn, no blood dripping down our windows, heck we don't even have a scarecrow on the front step!

Now we've had no candy in the past, but it has usually meant that we already plowed through the first batch. But this year, no shopping done. Haven't even considered it.

The thought of having to lug my butt up and down the stairs all night to the front door doesn't seem that appealing either. I am seriously torn between hiding in the basement (esp. given that the PVR is dead!) and just leaving a bowl of candy on the step or actually trying to muster the spirit to grab some decorations and greet the kids.
Who does she think she is?

We were this close to saying "Screw Halloween." with everything that's going on with Zoe at the moment. However, after discussing it, we decided it would be good for all of us to maintain as much normalcy as possible so we decorated yesterday. It was good to go outside and get our minds on other things if only for a little while. My point? Umm, I guess I understand how you feel, but you might feel better if you just go out and do it.

When someone comes to your door put on your best aussie accent and say Australians do have halloween. Sorry that is the best I can come up with ;)

Send the hubby out to the store for the following:
Bags of candy
Candy bowl
A plastic (plug into the wall) pumpkin (two if he can spare-one for each side of the door)

Then you just have him open the bags, pour it into the bowl, place a sign on the bowl that reads,"Happy Halloween-please be fair & don't hog the candy" Have him place the bowl and sign on a chair next to the front door and have him set out the pumpkin(s). The End.

You young lady are to stay off your feet!!!!
Pop in a good Horror movie, eat some popcorn and relax.

Happy Halloween!!!!!!

Just throw an orange sheet over yourself and sit on the front steps. Voila, pumpkin!
