Happy Halloween!

Kidlet and I got crafty this year. Aside from three jack o'lanterns (one from a ginormous Cinderella pumpkin we got free from her first grade teacher), we followed a craft idea from a magazine to create this cool castle out of boxes, cardboard tubes, and an egg carton:
We took another box from Costco and turned it into a spooky diorama:

Kidlet made the ghosts out of cotton balls wrapped with tissues and tape. Squiggly trees are chenille pipe-cleaners. Popsicle-stick fence. Grave markers at the bottom don't show well in this photo, but they're painted cardboard.

We had fun.

Now, go get candy.
