At first it was simply the beginning of fall. The grocery stores started carrying those little decorative pumpkins in their produce sections. Carter begged for one. It looked nice on our entryway table.
Then I needed a couple spiders for a Halloween costume. The cost per spider went way down when bought in bulk, so I did. The extra spiders went well with the pumpkin.
Then someone, I am not sure who although I have my suspicions, added the cow. I cannot decide what freaks me out more; the thought of a spider sized cow or cow sized spiders.
