When I saw the “Elf on a Shelf” floating around Facebook this morning, it was on. There ain’t no way that skinny little kid is gonna just swipe in and take my Halloween JOY! I kinda think Big Sexy felt something was a’brewin’ when he went out side and started up the chain saw. Me? I gave Cam a much needed bath.
I was wiping down his wheels when His Hotness hollared for me to come see. I saw and was all silly girl “Whoooohooooo I love it!” (Seriously, you would think he’d bought me a sister for Cam, an older sister, green please? a girl can dream, right?)
It didn’t stop with the thing-a-magig to hold the cauldron, see, my cauldron needed a handle, so he put one on. To show my appreciation, I proceeded to tote ALL of last years boxes of decor down from the attic…
“What are you doing?” he asked. “Plotting” I replied as I hurried out the door.
Would you believe that when he came back outside, he brought a load of firewood for the cauldron? Seriously, I kid you not, flat out busted me constructing that witch… A couple hours later I ended up with this…
I still had quite a bit of daylight left, so I pulled out the old lighted broom I got at Goodwill last year. The lights still didn’t work, but lucky for me, I got another set of lights at Goodwill last week and ended up with this:
By the time Big Sexy got back with the mixer (yeah, a mason’s work is never done, not even on a Sunday during football season) I had just finished stringing the lights on the porch,,,,,,,,backwards. I went and fed the birds and by the time I got back to the porch he had re-strung them. (Now you see one of the many reasons I love him lol)
He told me that maybe I should finish decorating tomorrow, it was getting dark by then. I put the tops back on the boxes started fixing dinner. Surely tonight I will have visions of heads on spikes dancing in my head (giggles)
Anyways, thanks for taking a break from talking diabetes, drama, food, whatevs, and indulging my silly girl Halloween loving side again this fine season!
