A couple of gourds have been the extent of my Halloween decorating in years past, but the holiday is becoming a bit of a thing over here so Jambo and I decided to kick it up a notch this year. We picked out a pumpkin together at a farm, decorated it with glitter, and set it outside by the mailbox so all of our neighbors can see how glitzy we are in this family. We saved the big project for the inside, though. Over the past three evenings, we've painted, decorated, and hung nine toilet-paper-roll bats. We got a little creative with the colors, did a special certain-football-team-themed bat for papa, and hung them upside-down despite my aesthetic sensibilities because, well, as Jamie reminded me, "bats hang upside-down". I didn't think Jamie was that into crafts, but this one took a great deal of commitment from the little guy and we had a lot of fun, so who knows? It may become a bit of a thing over here.
