I Tried

Elle has been begging me to decorate for Halloween. While she was at school I tried to get things a little more festive around here. I thought I had done a pretty good job. Orange door mat and berry wreath, orange flowers and a tin ghost in the kitchen and pumpkins on the mantel. Well, when she came home her little face did not look too excited. She just look confused.
Apparently nothing is very scary and "white pumpkins do not count as real pumpkins they are just a vegetable". That comment made me laugh out loud. Little does she know how hard I searched to find real white and blue pumpkins. I love them. I think she was invisioning the Lowe's halloween isle that we had recently been to when she asked me to decorate for this holiday. Nothing mechanical or screaming in sight around here...I am a total disappointment. I have a sneaky feeling however that someday when she is a mommy she too will go on the hunt for white and blue pumpkins.
