My original plan with the ghosts, being the multitasker that I am, was to wash each window before I put the ghost in — you know, as an incentive. But guess what? As I started to clean the window, these windows started to turn out EXACTLY like these. So, I quit washing while I was ahead. Cobwebs add to the spooky feel.
One of my older sons had a friend over after school yesterday while I was making the ghosts. He said, “Wow, that looks cool. I wish my Mom would do stuff like that.”
I said, “Why doesn’t she do it?” I knew the reasons; time, the mess and all the work. All justifiable reasons. I just wanted to hear what he said.
“She always says, ‘we’ll do something like that next year.'”
