What You Find When Your Husband Starts Halloween Preparations In September

One day last week I needed to get something from the storage area in the basement.  It had been a few weeks since I had been back there, so when I opened the door I was not prepared for what I saw.

I will start off by telling you that my hubby likes to decorate for Halloween.  As the kids have gotten older, he has gotten more excited because we can get spookier decorations.  I must say, I was very surprised when he started getting into Halloween.  When we were first dating, he would sit in the basement at his parents while they answered the door to trick or treaters.

When we first moved out, he would stay in the tv room (which is upstairs) and get annoyed by all the doorbell ringing while I handled giving out the candy.  Once Mr. J came along, he was excited by the prospect of taking him trick or treating, and the enthusiasm for Halloween has grown more and more every year.

As soon as he found out Spirit Halloween was open, he and Mr. J went to check out what they had. A week or so later, they went through all the stuff we had from previous years, and what they had purchased this year as well.

So, on the day I went into the storage room, as I said above, I just wasn't prepared for what was waiting on the other side

This life sized witch on a swing, hanging from a shelf. It is immediately in front of the door, so the first thing you see when you open it.  I screamed and probably lost 10 years of my life when it happened.


  1. Hahah while I know I would have also screamed like a banshee (sorta like when I encounter a spider in the house) - I can't help but laugh! That is creepy :)

  2. yeah I would have jumped out of my skin lol

  3. Oh I would have SCREAMED.

    I am the same way about Christmas - was totally uninterested until I had kids of my own and now I am all JINGLE BELLED up in this joint.

  4. Oh my goodness!! I think I would've had a heart attack if my husband did this to me! lol
