The one bummer with trick or treating is that our front porch light doesn't work. I think I've mentioned that our house has some "issues" and apparently wiring is one of those issues. When we moved in, there was an old crappy light out there with no light bulb so we didn't really know what the issues were. We got a new cute light and J installed it this past week (after I nagged him to do it or we wouldn't get any trick or treaters!!). Well it still doesn't work, which means the issue is with wiring - when you flip the switch for the light, the entire front of our house loses power! Awesome. So I got really sad and worried that no kids would come to our house since there wouldn't be a light on.
Then I came up with an idea - luminaries!! I'm lining our whole sidewalk and front steps with them in hopes that it will bring on the kids! Plus it doubles as a cool decoration for our party as well! I got white bags and sand and I'm using those battery powered tea lights to make them a little bit safer than regular candles. I'm also going to tie orange and black balloons to our mailbox. J even made two tombstones out of cardboard last night to give us some extra decorations so the kids will know we have candy!
Happy Almost Halloween!
