My Halloween Decor

Say Hello to Fred. He has been with us two years now. We purchased him last October at Target, then put him in the truck with a wig and sunglasses and drove around town just for laughs. 
This year he is wearing a vintage wedding dress at the dinner table.

 My youngest has creeped some people out with him. She took him everywhere for awhile. Even drug him into the sandbox to play. It's funny to see a tiny 3 year old dragging around a skeleton and calling him by name, having tea parties and conversations.
I made the Halloween sign from an old piece of furniture that broke off. Painted and distressed!
 The rosettes were made from card stock and a $1.00 stamp at Michaels.

 This is George...all of our critters and creatures have names!
 Here the rats are trying to sneak into the sugar bowl.

I'm having a lot of fun with the $1.00 Trick or Treat Stamp. 
Both of my oldest kids have smaller birthday parties this year because we are gearing up for a giant Halloween party. Woohoo!!
