Master Masterpiece asked when I was going to bring out the halloween decorations!

Happy dance.  A big, happy, witchy momma dance.

For those who know me, I get a bit melancholy about my kids getting older & not embracing some of the things they use to get super excited about when they were younger.

I get it.  They’re teenagers.  They’re too cool for school.

So when my 15 year old asks about halloween decorations, well I get right on it.  I don’t require much arm twisting in this department as it is.

Decorate for a new season?  Yup, I’m all over it.  Don’t have to ask me twice.
I added subtle changes to my fall mantel to spookify it for the season.  remember my fall mantel?

Well, a few masquerade masks and glittery bats later & viola!

Master Masterpiece is my kid who has always dug traditions.  God bless him, ‘cuz so does his momma.
