A Jolly Green Infant and Kid-Inspired Halloween Decor

My sweet pea (and I) made the front page of the local paper! The WTH look on her face? Priceless!

Moving on.

Once upon a time, my Halloween decor consisted of pumpkins and pretty Halloween decorations. I even managed to keep my house looking like Halloween vomit, despite Grant's Halloween obsession.

And then the kids arrived.

Now?

I have a bat hanging from the ceiling.

Witches reside in my living room.

A giant pumpkin takes up space in the hallway.

Dylan's homemade ghost hangs on a door.

My counters are littered with homemade goodies.

Seasonal artwork, lovingly created and put up by my kids, hangs on the refrigerator doors.

And that's not all of it. We still have another bin of decorations that have to be put up before our Halloween party on Saturday.

My space?

One measly corner.

I better get used to it.

Because round two will be starting up soon.

For now, I'm content. The cheesy decorations make them so happy, and I love all the handmade items on display. Happy kids...happy mama!

My time for classy Halloween decorations will come again, all too soon.

Then again, who am I kidding?

I'll resort back to my kiddie decor once grandkids enter the picture!
