I’m all for seasonal decorating, but…

I’m wondering if this isn’t a wee bit much.

Jude and I walked past this house tonight in our neighborhood. It’s the real live Bates Motel. Notice the flying skeleton. And the wonky shutters on the upper dormer windows – really? Who bothers to put out messed-up shutters? These people are hardcore.  Lotsa  cobwebs. Oh, and if you can’t tell, there’s a multitude of hangman’s nooses hanging from their abundant trees. I guess this is supposed to be the freaky house in the neighborhood.

Hmmm. Interesting. Not for me, but I guess it’s kinda fun to see what people come up with!

How ’bout you – what do you do to decorate seasonally?

I’m ready to go buy pumpkins and get out all my fall decorating items. October is my 2nd favorite month, and looks like it’s going to be a fun one this year. Simon turns 30(!) and we’re trying to go to NYC for his bday. Jude will turn 3 and I’m planning a Peter Pan party which is going to be tons-o-fun. And — good news! — I read today at USA Today that there is no longer a pumpkin shortage. Bring on the pumpkin goodies!
