This our first Christmas as parents, so it's really going to be a special one.
I don't do a theme as I'm rather eclectic. We have a large tree that will come out of hiding this year and it will mainly be decorated with homemade or embellished ornaments with some creepy ones thrown into the mix. Please don't feel intimated by this as some of my embellished ornaments are simply DT jingle bells/candy canes with bows on them. Since my husband loves purple, our tree will likely have purple garland (if I can remember where I put it) and a refurbished lighted topper that I redid in purple two years ago. I do put several gold ornaments on the tree also. The main living areas of our house are painted in olive or caramel so anything decorative that could stay out year-round would be awesome. The interior of our house does not look like a magazine cover (unless there's a magazine called Eclectic Halloween Hoarders) so don't worry too much about whether something will fit in or not.
Our daughter will be nine-months old by the time Christmas rolls around and would cherish anything that our reaper would like to send her, though if you would like to send an outfit or sleeper go with the next larger size as she's really long. We also have a spoiled dog who dislikes the cold and opts to spend her days (and nights) inside during the winter.
All of our family celebrations take place elsewhere but I do plan on decorating inside. We may put some lights up outside but are unsure at this time. I've created a pinterest board especially for this reaper and will be adding to it in the coming weeks. Please don't feel you have to make or buy something that I have pinned--I mainly created it to give you an idea of my interests.
Also I'm planning on making a witch for Halloween 2016. Not necessarily the pointy-hat witch but more of the wrinkled granny-woman/hag/backwoods medicine woman witch. I plan on making her face and hands out of paper mache and making a cat also. I could use any creepy witch-type things too and I would love a witch ball!
