We used to go all out with holiday decorations...but the past 3 or 4 years...we have seriously fallen off the decorating wagon. Every year I vow to do better, because I really do love when there are fall and Christmas and Easter things everywhere...but every year, I realize I don't have nearly as many ( or hardly any!!) decorations as I thought I did...that of course makes me think.."why bother??". Maybe 2012 will be my year :)
We did convince daddy to get us a few straw bales so we could make a scarecrow...however..we couldn't convince him to stake it up, so he didn't last for long. That was about the extent of our Halloween decorating, but the kids had fun. Somehow, it turned into a straw fight, which meant straw covering the entire yard...but hey...what's a little bitty mess when you can hear those laughs?!?
