A dead tree and Mr. Skeleton's coffee

Sunday afternoon, Josie was introduced to several of our Halloween creatures. As long as we refer to the creatures, as "Daddy's toys", she doesn't seem to mind. Note in the picture that Josie is serving Mr. Skeleton "coffee" from her plastic tea set.

A tradition every year for the last seven years, has been to bring a dead tree from our woods into the house and decorate it for the Halloween party. The dead tree is actually quite festive once it's all done and many of our Halloween guests pose for their Halloween pictures in front of the tree.

We fill it with lights, garland, bats, birds, ghosts, pumpkins, mini skeletons and paper lanterns. Josie got right into the mix of decorating the tree this year and I've captured some of the decorating festivities in the movie below.

I'm glad Josie is okay with the scary stuff. Madi is having problems after the "storms" in Rainforest Cafe!
