Goodbye, Halloween closeout stuffs

Oh well, we went back last night and yep, I was right. Since the other things were fancier, the vendors took them back. AWWW. But as I said before, that's okay because my Korbel display is pretty cool.

We were able to get a few items on severe clearance through, so that was fun. The only thing I thought was funny is that the store already had their Christmas tree up with some purchasable (?) toys in the exact place where the Halloween decor had been.. Sheesh, just give me a few moments to breathe!

I do like Christmas, but dang it's technically still Autumn, isn't it? What happened to putting up X-mas decor after Thanksgiving? After the Macy's parade was over? I still do that, regardless. Then everything stays up until January 1st.

My mama taught me right.

And on a sad note, our jack-o-lantern has gone to that pumpkin graveyard so un-romantically named the dumpster. Here it is in its' last moments:

It's horrible that something so neat died such a tragic death so quickly. But I was very tempted to buy one of the pumpkins at the store last night and wait until around Christmas to carve a Santa or a snowman on it. There's festive for you!

Ooh, that's still an idea...

I think the Pumpkin Santa's a great idea

I agree with Rita. Pumpkin snowman sounds good too. Hooray for RUTH & JACK, eventually they'll have all the holidays incorporated. Will that mean orange shamrocks?
