There is nothing like decorating a house for Halloween to get my 8-year-old son going. Last year we tried putting up twinkly lights for the first time, and he shot up two feet in the air when he stuck his finger in the socket at the end of the string. Scariest Halloween ever.
He and his brother decorated our new house for the first time, and I think they did a gruesomely cool job. It may not feel like October outside, but in our little pocket of the world, we’re doing our best to bring it on.
