Best of Halloween

We got home on Thursday for find a box for Harrison on the step. It was a Halloween surprise from his aunt in Arizona.
I got the scissors out and cut the tape with enough time to jump back and watch Harrison tear into it. The first word out of his mouth...

"POPCORN!"

Had there been nothing more in that box he would have been happy, but for the 3-year-old, it only got better.

Candy!

And more...This is his "spooky tree", he won't let anyone touch it (with the exception of grown ups).

Then we realized the little ornaments Aunt Celia sent were to hang on it!


All done!
We also put together another little craft she sent, but we'll save it for another week - closer to Thanksgiving.

After the crafts and candy, Harrison had another thought. He looked at me sheepishly, I knew what he was thinking and I encouraged him to test it out...
A perfect fit, he decided.

Now a closer look at that Halloween card.

"Hey Mama! Look, spooky skeleton!"


My best shot. More joy of course. Playing in boxes filled with packing "popcorn" - what more could you ask for?

I told you, he would have loved his Aunt just for that alone; everything else was just a bonus.

"Thank you Aunt Celia in Azona!"



For more Monday fun head over to Mother May I.

Megan said...

that's one awesome aunt! we have a fun halloween tree like that and the kids love it. FYI: at our house we call packing peanuts "ghost poo" :).

Peanuts certainly do make kids happy. There's no 2 ways about that. Mine is the same way, something else being in the box is an added treat. ;) The spooky tree is really cool. What a great piece of halloween decor to put up every year.

Boxes. Oh how kids love their boxes. That tree was a neat idea. He must have had a ball with all those gifts. I know Ella loves to get packages from family in the mail.

Frozen Eights said...

So freaking cute. And that's what I'm like with packages, too.

HipMomma said...

There is nothing like a package at the door filled with popcorn. Too fun. He gets cuter every day.
