Favorite Halloween Tradition: Dancing Ghosts

How is this for a great tradition? Every Halloween since Andrew was a wee lad, my mom has set up these dancing ghosts in our yard. She appears with plastic pumpkin candy holders, sheets, and wooden stakes in hand and works her magic. Simple, but special.

Don’t the ghosts just make you smile?

    I’ll tell her, Stephanie. Thank you! A friend on Facebook just said that she knows someone who does this, and when Halloween is over she puts tinsel halos on them for Christmas!
