mr. orange-bones jones

26 Oct

we have a few halloween decorations. not a lot, but enough to make us festive. some of it is inside, just for us: homemade pumpkins & harvest bottles, bowls & baskets. that kind of stuff. nothing terribly exciting. i have templates made for gravestones with limericks about all of us, but they’re made of cardboard, so i’ve never used them. hopefully, i can get some plywood for next year and paint them.

and then, there’s mr. orange-bones jones.

he’s our skeleton that we put up for the first time, last halloween. we put him up a week & a half ago & will stuff his rib cage with orange lights & park him in front of the window.

problem is, we can’t find our halloween box.

it’s in the garage.

that’s half-full of an unpacked basement.

so this year, the boy has decided that he’s just bones.

until i get my tail to target & remedy the situation with a $2 string of orange lights.

’cause one can only take so much of a 3 year old yelling at them to stop singing this:

(of course, he usurped my song this morning with his own ditty. and don’t i look hot in my workout tee? if i don’t do it now, it won’t happen so love on that hawtness. now to write some more verses for this one…)

    You guys are adorable. And I’m not just saying that because you and I look alike.

    We do.

    It’s a little weird, actually.
