Halloween Doesn't Scare Me, But This Does ...

Grams' neighbors have started their annual Halloween decorating frenzy. There are ghosts and ghouls hanging from trees. Gravestones are popping up in front yards. Front doors are guarded by scarecrows and witches. Walkways have been lined with spiderwebs and jack-o-lanterns. This neighborhood is big on Halloween. I blogged about the Haunt-aholics in my neighborhood last year.

But ghosts and ghouls don't scare me. Here's what's really scary. Christmas is less than twelve weeks away. (Cue Psycho music.) AmberLee over at Giver's Log called this to my attention with a couple of recent posts.  She has also put together a very helpful Holiday Organizer to help us get organized and make this the year that we "get holiday things done in time to enjoy the holidays." Click on over to this post and you can download the organizer in two different forms.


  1. Another thing we have in common: I LOVE AmberLee! I wrote a post about her a while back. She's so darn creative!

    Yes, the creeping up of Christmas is definitely frightening!

  2. You're right, that IS scary. I haven't started anything!

  3. What?? Unless you count buying candy every week (because it keeps disappearing) I'm not even ready for Halloween!

    Your newest follower from the Monkey tribe,

  4. Eh, I'm not big into gifts so not too worried about Christmas. Love your neighbors' ambition with the Halloween decorations though. I never seem to get beyond putting a few decorative candles out.

  5. Hi from SITS Monkey tribe! I agree-I go alittle crazy at Christmas! I have not even started shopping yet, and we are celebrating three Christmases this yr--one at home, one at my parents, and one at in-laws (in FL). Guess I better get with the program, huh? :)

  6. 12 weeks?! Yikes! I'd better get started! Going to check out this holiday organizer!

    Also wanted to thank you for visiting my blog on Monday and being a part of my SITS day! It was amazing!
