My husband and I have been talking about doing some sort of yard decorating for Halloween since… oh gosh, since we got married, I suppose.
Other than pumpkins, we really never have.
This year, our son decided he was too old for trick-or-treating, and asked what we were going to do for Halloween. I asked him if there were some parties he wanted to go to or anything like that, or if he had any suggestions. He didn’t have any ideas, so I asked if he’d like to make some tombstones with goofy sayings on them like Disney’s Haunted Mansion. He was enthusiastic. So, when I put it to his father, of course we got an enthusiastic yes as well.
This was goofy, but fun. We got some foamboard, Peter cut them into shape, we all painted them gray, Peter did the layout and outlines, then Samuel and I painted, coloring very nicely in the lines.
