Simple Halloween Decor

Out of all of the major holidays celebrated in the United States Halloween is at the bottom of my list. I love fall and pumpkins. I love cooler weather and hot cider but I cannot wrap my head around dressing up with the express purpose to scare the ever living out of people, especially children. We try to keep things pretty tame in our home. No scary costumes or decor for us. In fact, it's been years since I've actually decorated for Halloween.

I don't want to sound like I don't like having a good time, beacuse I do! I love how excited my children get choosing their costumes. I love watching them gleefully skip and run from house to house hoping to snag a favorite candy bar. I just don't like being creeped out. In an effort to celebrate this holiday that my children enjoy I picked up these darling little mice and bat silhouettes from the craft store for 70% off. Yesterday, while Henry napped Oliver and I set to work getting this house of ours a little more festive.




Oliver loved choosing just the right locations for the mice and bats and I loved seeing Henry's reaction when he finally woke up. Would you believe that he is completely freaked out? Every time he walks past the planked wall or passes a little mouse on the stairs he says "scawrrry!" It's hilarious and a little sad too. Thankfully, after many reassurances from Ryan and I he's beginning to warm up to our temporary house guests.

  1. I am with you! I don't like the creepy and scary aspects of Halloween. Just the fun treats and dressing up. Those silhouettes are just right. May i ask where you got them?

  3. I feel the same way but my kids always want it a little more festive. I had those same mice and have been putting them up the last three years. They are cute easy and don't take much room to store which is so nice.
