Minion's First Halloween!

We didn't do much Halloweeny stuff this year. We were very excited, early on, to decorate our back porch with lights for the first time but we were lazy about actually doing that and didn't get it done or turned on until Saturday night. They looked fabulous! Twinkling white/green ghost lights, twinkling purple spider lights, simple orange lights . . . all the Halloween colors in a simple layout. I forgot to take a picture that night, and wouldn't you know, the next night half of them weren't working. Maybe hubby can find the problem this evening and I can get a pic of them tonight.
We did spend most of Saturday getting our CHRISTMAS lights hung. Last year we waited too long and they looked like half-assed crap because it was too cold to hang things properly, so this year we grabbed what might be one of the last decent days and at least got the basics strung up. We have our lighted figures (deer, etc.) placed too but have not yet hung the more obvious things like big wreaths or green garland along the porch rails. And no, they won't be turned on until after Thanksgiving.
Sunday we went to Menards to grab a few more Christmas lights and ended up grabbing several more Halloween decorations because they were on sale for about half off. The weather was crappy though, so we didn't actually finish hanging those lights. I was going to make fun Halloween cupcakes but have never made cupcakes before (believe it or not!) and in the end decided to just make a boring pan cake. Hubby and I carved our two pumpkins last night, and that's about it. The boys had no interest in carving this year. Well Matt was willing but when he realized we didn't have one for him he stomped off. Heh, Matt, that's what I meant Saturday when I told you and Ty to get more pumpkins if you want to carve some. *shakes head*
Hubby has been watching every cheesy zombie show and movie that comes on but I don't bother. The only scary movie I've watched recently was Quarantine 2 even though early in the month I'd been wanting to dig out all our classic thrillers and watch them leading up to Halloween day. Oh well, maybe we'll at least force a viewing of Charlie Brown tonight before hubby watches Terra Nova.
And today is Halloween. To me, it seems like yesterday was Halloween. Not sure why. Today is my day off and I've been fighting the urge to pack up all my Halloween decorations already.
Did you have any spooky fun this Halloween?
