This year, Halloween means a bit more to me than usual with a little guy at home. While I know that his 7-month-old self doesn't get the concept of Halloween, he sure seems to laugh every time I put a mask on or show him the monkey costume that I bought for him. Either way, I feel like parenthood means stepping up my enthusiasm and getting my house in the spirit too!
To start, I've been looking around at eerie, creepy and crazy decorating ideas. Before I go too overboard with fake webbing and laughing witches on my front porch, I thought I'd share a few of these pumpkin-inspired ideas which are fun and easy to do.
