Goring Up Your Place for Halloween

Since we have a six-year-old (who just turned six; it feels weird to type that!), we can’t get very gory in our Halloween décor. She gets scared of Scooby Doo, so you know the blood and gore are out! And I’m not really into the gore so much as I am as, say, the giant monsters and such anyway; but those, too, will have to wait until she’s older.

In the meantime, I am enjoying living my Halloween decorating fantasies out vicariously through my younger sister, who is mentally on the same page as me almost all the time and reflects many of my own tastes and perspectives in what she does. She agreed to share these amazing photos of what she’s been doing to prepare her home for Halloween, and I am psyched to share them here.
