Another helping of Halloween madness...

We've been busy transforming our garage...would you like to see a sneak peek?





Amazing what a plastic black tarp, a sponge mop and some left over paint can turn into. Not only does it look nice and creepy, it covers up all the "stuff/junk" in the garage.


We've got a long way to go, but it's a good start. This is what it looked like last year.



Once the lights and garland are hung, the whole garage becomes festive.

I'm ready to test out the popcorn machine and Josie has insisted on rearranging the sucker tree at least fifty times.




If you need one last easy way to add a little Halloween inside your home, take this bat template, print it out on black paper, or trace onto black construction paper, and tape inside your lamp shade.



Pretty spooky, wouldn't you agree? You might even tuck this idea away in case you have a batman themed birthday party in your future.

Only a few more days until Oct 30th!!
