Hallie stated walking back home. She had seen enough decorations. It was time for her to finish the final decorations on her house. Once Hallie got home, her mom was outside putting up all of the lights. Hallie just made a couple of newspaper ghosts and hung them up in the tree outside of her window. It was getting dark, so Hallie’s mom said she would finish up and let Hallie get some rest.
Hallie slept very well that night. She had dreams about witches and pumpkins, but they were very nice.
Hallie woke up early the next morning because she wanted to have the best yard for Halloween. She didn’t have any more time for sleep! She ran down stairs and had breakfast. Her little sister, Ava had already woken up and she was drawing faces on all the pumpkins that hadn’t already been carved. Hallie’s pumpkin was in the shape of a black cat. She walked outside. Her yard was filled with spider webs of all colors, ghouls and goblins and she had her very own pumpkin patch. But, it still needed more. There were ghost lights and there were flashing on and off. They were very cool.
Hallie’s thoughts popped into her head, and she now knew what the yard was missing, a skeleton! Hallie’s dad had made one a few years back, and now it just sits in the garage.
She went down to get it and brought it back upstairs. Hallie took it outside and thought of where to put it. She thought that it would look good lying in the flowerbed next to her front door. She set him down and propped him up. Hallie stepped back a few feet, turned on all the lights and looked at her yard. Hallie was very proud of her decorations and she couldn’t wait for all her friends to see them.
