Maggie had a lot of fun at her 12th birthday party. With Jon's help, I made bat and raven cutouts, decorated the back porch with pumpkins ready to carve, black streamers and covered the globe lights in purple tissue paper. It looked really cool when it got dark—Jon put up two black lights that gave everything a creepy glow. We shut off all the lights and the kids played ghosts in the graveyard. Jon snuck around the side of the house and scared them all pretty good.
