Way back on our honeymoon in August 1999 I bought a little Halloween decoration for the front table in our apartment...super excited about all the holidays ahead in our family's future. Fifteen years later the little welcome witch still makes it way out of the storage box this time of year. This time it's on our mantle with a few other decorations and the pumpkin lights that are usually on our front porch.
For the first time ever we won't be home to host a pizza party and go trick-or-treating. Mac has his last home game on Halloween, so I have been hesitant to decorate the front porch because I hate the idea of it being all cute & glowing without us being there to hand out candy and drink lots of apple cider.
At least we can enjoy a cute, glowing mantle...and maybe still sip some hot apple cider when we get home from the game.
