The kids didn't have school this week and I didn't have work on Friday so we decided it would be a good time to decorate for Halloween. We built "Uncle George", and set him on the front porch. He consists of an old sweatshirt and an old pair of my jeans stuffed with newspapers and pillows, with a pumpkin basket for a head. He freaks us out every time we leave the house. The last time we built him was in Michigan so the kids were quite excited to resurrect him this year. My incredible wife, Sarah, decided that she wanted some classier fall decorations than Uncle George. So out came the grapevine pumpkins, fall wreath, gourds, and indian corn. As usual, she did a great job and it looks incredible. For a finishing touch she found some fall colored M&Ms that she placed in clear containers around the other decorations. I didn't even know they made M&Ms in fall colors. They come in peanut, plain, and dark chocolate varieties. They looked really good with the rest of the decorations. They were the perfect touch. I think Sarah's intention was to have these fall colored M&Ms last throughout the fall season. There is only one problem... did you know that fall colored M&Ms taste just like regular M&Ms!? It's true! Needless to say they didn't last for very long. As a matter of fact the peanut M&Ms were gone within a few hours. Sorry Sarah, maybe next time we should decorate with fall colored brussels sprouts... dipped in chocolate of course.
