"i'll toot if i have to"

Ahh...the fightin' words of an eight year old with very overactive bowels.

But that's not what this post is about.

Lemme' tell y'all just how excited I am for
next Halloween!

My kids and I raided three stores yesterday morning all with post-Halloween sales. For less than $200, we got
all the decorations we'll need to put on a seriously frightening display for next year! It includes the following...

1 miniature poseable skeleton (it resembles the larger classroom models)
1 bag 'o bones that can be displayed in any way
4 decent-sized tombstones
several packages of cobwebs
1 fog machine
3 strobe lights
2 zombie costumes
1 motion-sensored skull that lights up and plays the Halloween movie theme song
1 motion-sensored ghostly spirit that shakes, rattles its chains and screams bloody murder
1 eerie 'welcome' sign
1 lit up gate/fence

And I'm not sure the shopping is done! I'm willing to spend an even $200 total if I happen to spot something elsewhere that I really can't do without! Like a coffin, for instance. Not a real one, bitches!!

The kids and I have already talked out decoration plans for next year. I won't spoil the secret. You'll just have to wait another 362 days to find out.

Although, I will tell you that I have enough props to erect an elaborate cemetery scene. Or open my own cemetery.

Now someone please tell me how the fuck I'm gonna' get all this shit in my attic?!

Sounds awesome! I love 'after holiday' sales. Go to Home Depot, buy some cheap lumber & make a casket - easy. ;-)
