The Twelve Days of Halloween

on October 31, 2013

Halloween batsSince Halloween is truly a holiday for the kids, I thought I’d share a little song our nine-year-old daughter, Elissa, came up with yesterday. I was pretty impressed with her creativity (she sat down at the computer for half an hour and did this completely on her own yesterday); she says it should be sung to the tune of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas.’ Enjoy…and Happy Haunting!
