Yesterday my six-year-old son asked me if next year we could please get some “gory” and “really scary” Halloween decorations.
Apparently our current decorations are “cute.”
The truth is, I love “cute!” Gory and scary . . . not so much. For me Halloween is simply a fun part of fall — it’s harvest time, it’s pumpkin time!
How cute are these pumpkin cookies!?
Adorable for Halloween. . . .
Last year I went a little out of my Halloween comfort zone and added a spider to my treat — remember my Spooky Spider Chocolate Truffles? Spider and all, somehow they were still cute!
P.S. If your’re wondering, our decorations consist of outdoor candy corn lights, a few hanging bats, a couple of (smiling) Frankenstein window decals, and a big spider web with a big spider! And yes, of course I said we can get more gory next year, (not that I really wanted to. ;-)).
