I couldn’t wait a second longer to bring out the Frankie box!  When we first did a “Frankie theme” in 2010 our little Frankie wasn’t even on our radar.  Now we have a real-life Frankie to help us get in the mood for FALL!  Today I added some new surprises to our box and I checked out a couple of books at the library.  I like to introduce “monsters” early in season…  before all the ultra-scary Halloween decorations come out in the stores.  (Any excuse to start FALL fun is enough for me!)   Crafts and books really seem to reinforce that monsters and all the Halloween characters just PRETEND and just for FUN!

Be afraid.  Be very afraid.  This monster is on the crawl.

Before bed tonight we did a Franken-wrap.  I should have caught these guys on video, it was so funny.  I think this is their favorite fall game!

Mason was gone for this and when he returned and spotted these pictures on the computer he immediately asked if we could do it again tomorrow!

“I can’t believe I missed that!!!!”  Who knew a roll of streamers could be so much fun?!
