Little Man taking in the many displays on "The Halloween Street" on Saturday.
Halloween is approaching rapidly and my kids are like spinning tops, wound up with excitement.
Miss E. attended a birthday party of a classmate on Saturday, where everyone was encouraged to wear costumes. So, this was the first of many appearances by Little Red Riding Hood.
Not sure why I opted to take her photo next to the trash can in the kitchen. Not a wise decision on my part.

So, while our social butterfly was consuming sugar at her friend’s party, we took Little Man on a tour of what we call “The Halloween Street.” If you know Louisville, you’re familiar with Hillcrest, which is a street in the Crescent Hill neighborhood where residents go all-out when it comes to Halloween.
We parked a street away and then walked up and down looking at the spooky set-ups. I can’t imagine putting that much work into a Halloween display, but it’s such fun for passers-by. Then, on Halloween, people come from all over the city to Trick-or-Treat. I’ve heard that the neighborhood association helps foot the bill for the candy, because you can only imagine how much candy is given out on that night.
Little Man wanted to take photos of every house with my iPhone, and he just about did. By himself. We’ve joked for a while now that our son has quite the eye when it comes to photography. He’s our photographer prodigy. Not a bad shot of Mommy and Daddy, huh?
In every other photo, Little Man wanted to give his "scary face."
This is one of the more disturbing displays on Hillcrest. Ah, Halloween!
Outside our own home, we have a few ghosts hanging in the tree in the front yard, in addition to potted mums and fall wreaths on the front door. Pumpkins will follow with a trip to the pumpkin patch this coming weekend.
Do you decorate for Halloween? If so, how?
Happy Monday, friends. It was hard getting up this morning. Little Man was not having it. When we approached his pre-school, he said, "If they're not there, we're leaving." Sorry, buddy. They were waiting for you. :)
