Cuz Wren’s been awful busy makin’ costumes, an’ I’m not too good with sewin’, I figured I’d work on decorating up the main room for Halloween! Cooper an’ Falcon said they’d help. Meikiko wanted to help too, but Wren couldn’t get her to take her costume off, so she had to sit out. But that’s ok. She can help with other stuff.
We cleaned up the room some first, cuz it was fulla dust an’ dirt. That part wasn’t so fun. But I knew Wren would say it was important. Personally, I thought maybe alla dusty stuff would make it look creepier. Cooper said that was just a lazy thought.
Alla stuff was packed away, so we pulled it outta storage an’ set stuff up. I found this awesome tin with a ouija board onna front, an’ a creepy coffin, an’ thought the corner over by our stove would be good. Riley tried to help, but mostly she just barked atta coffin. I love Riley. She’s a good guard pup.
Falcon focused onna middle, using some cut-out pieces for decoratin’. He found a cauldron, too, an’ those awesome eyeballs! Oh, I remember those! Wren thought she’d scare me with ’em last year. They are pretty creepy, tho. I wish they glowed inna dark or somethin’. We could turn off alla lights an’ watch ’em watchin’ us. Falcon’s fox wasn’t too sure what to think of it, even without it glowin’, so I think that means it’s spooky enough.
An’ Cooper…well, he kinda struggled a bit. He put some li’l pieces out inna other corner, where we got chairs, but he said the skeleton didn’t look right sittin’ there, an’ it kept fallin’ down, an’ he just didn’ know what he outta do with it.
So I popped it inna different place, an’ I think it looks all right.
I’ll probably move it again later. For sure, some Little’s gonna wanna hide inna coffin. I hope they do! It makes a frightful sound, an’ I bet it’s gonna make ’em all jump. They’re so cute when they get scared, cuz their eyes get all big, an’ then they get all angry cuz I giggle. I can’t help it! They’re just so cute!
But that was it. I told Cooper we needed more. If we could find some spider things, an’ rig up somethin’ so it’d look like cobwebs, that’d be neat. An’ maybe if we could make somethin’ look like a science experiment gone wrong, that’d be cool too. But “gone wrong” sounds kinda like “make a mess,” an’ I’m not too sure Wren would like that much. Plus we need snacks an’ candy an’ things. Apples too.
Oh gumdrops! An’ pumpkins!
“We need pumpkins ’bout this big. At least this big. Bunches of ’em.”
Cooper just laughed. “It’s going to be ok, Kestrel. We’ll find pumpkins. Maybe not quite that big, though. That’s about as big as Meikiko.”
I can’t wait. It’s gonna be so much fun!
