Halloween Decorating with Grandchildren

Pat got the box of Halloween decorations down a couple of weeks ago and put it in the garage.Its been driving Morgan and Kevin nuts with anticipation ever since.  Finally,  last weekend everyone’s schedule synced and we were able to dive into the box of goodies

.Morgan used her handy-dandy  adult-sized dolly to wheel the box over  and we got everything out. She absolutely loves that dolly and Kevin loves that big empty box, go figure.

We laid everything out on the porch to see what we had.  Kevin was having a hard time staying focused because he had to explore everything that came out of the box.c_Fotor_Collage

Once we sorted through everything to decide what we would use, they settled on decorating the areas they liked best.

Kevin likes the skeletons, so he created a gallows, with a cauldron of hot lava underneath

Morgan likes to climb the Magnolia tree, so she hung all the cobwebs up.

I was in charge of sticking things in the rock-hard ground and hanging other things in hard-to-reach places.

We weren’t finished when their Mum came to pick them up, so they posed for some pictures before leaving. There was even left-over decorations for them to take home.

I was left to put the finishing touches on and I think it turned out pretty good.  Great job Morgan and Kevin.
