It's the 25th, and not one of my children has definitively figured out what costume they're going to wear! Argh!
On the plus side, we did get the hallway decorated with our big fuzzy spiders and the cobwebs. The kids have put up the signs on all the rooms (they made these two years ago, they're not great signs, but we do save them and repost). The livingroom is the "Dying Room," the bedrooms are the "Dead Rooms" &c.
The spooky (fake) candles are up in our front windows. We never get a lot of trick-or-treaters at our place, so I'm thinking I'll get a small amount of fun, themed, non-made-in-Mexico-or-China candy that, inevitably, my own kids will end up eating.
Yes, our house is a candy-binge house in the weeks following Halloween, and I'm okay with that. Happily, they are active enough that the extra calories seem like a negligible issue.
The self-control *I* have to exercise to not go into their treat bags--that's another issue entirely!
