Creepin’ it Real Halloween Card

Creepin’ it Real…

When it comes to Halloween, I’m not into scary and gore.  (I’m too big of a chicken.)

I’m all about the C-A-N-D-Y!

I love Halloween Parades and seeing the little kids in their cute costumes.

I’m into “Halloween cute”.

The Trick or Treat Stamp Set and Die Set from Maker’s Movement is “Halloween Cute”.  

Sweet little Halloween characters with just the right amount of attitude.

Welcome Trick or Treaters

Welcome Trick or Treaters 9833

When it comes to Halloween Decorating, I’m not one to go all out.

Usually a couple of jack-o-lanterns and that’s it.  (I’m pretty low-key)

How do you Welcome Trick or Treaters?

I remember the year my oldest decided that he was too old for trick or treating…

He dressed up in costume… sat in the chair on the porch with a big bowl of candy to pass out.

He sat very, very still.

All the kids thought he was a decoration.

When they’d start to reach and grab the candy he’d scare them.

As I was walking down our street from taking my daughter Trick or Treating that night,

we were warned about the house on the end of the street.

I think that might of been his favorite Halloween.
