I’ve never celebrated Halloween till now, and because of that, we went completely overboard with the decorations for our apartment – we spent most of the week cutting out construction paper from templates we obtained either online or from the venerable Martha Stewart.
Most of the enthusiasm, planning and execution was supplied by Naomi, while the grumbling and begrudging was performed solely by me.
It all became worth it when this morning Kai woke up and I brought him into the living room. He stared at every single piece of decoration we put up, quietly going from pumpkin to witch and back again, for the better part of half an hour before it was time for his breakfast.
We are going to get used to this.
