I meant to post our Halloween photos much sooner..
so much has been happening lately.
Well, I'll show'em to you anyway:) there isn't that many.
you probably know we celebrate Great Pumpkin night on the 30th...
I've done this for almost twenty years..
We have good food, lot's of treats, scary movies and music..
then at midnight on the 31st the Great Pumpkin leaves toys and candy by the front door.
This night is like Christmas Eve for us.
Helena carved her first pumpkin by herself!
This year I made our dinner using some recipes I found on line,
I made feet loaf..which looked absolutely disgusting,
giant fingers...just bread sticks with almond nails
pulverized ghosts..(mashed potatoes)
& goblin guts...which were carrots and peas...
(I didn't know what else to call them, haha)
Did I take pictures??
NO of course not! I completely forgot:-/
I do have some dessert photos,, which were pretty simple..
We didn't want too many since a huge load of candy was on it's way..
I received the best jewelry I could ever get in my life...ever!
I love Hellboy so this ring is perfect for me.
I also got this awesome tote bag I admired at Barnes & Noble a couple of weeks ago...
And this!...this was JUST recommended to me by an amazing person...
and somehow the Great Pumpkin knew!
It was absolutely the best!
We had an incredibly fun night.
After the gifts and candy,
we went for a drive...
no exorcism sounds this time though...haha
was bright and cloudless...not my favorite, but it was cool out there.
Helena was transformed into Jordy Verrill.
Here she is on her way to watch the Goosebumps movie.
She insisted that we go as Stephen King characters...
So I was a random vampire...(Salem's Lot?)
This is a picture she took of us at the end of the day.
minus her mold, uni-brow and my blood stained mouth.
We had a great time...
I am sorry it took so long to post this.
The days have really just slipped away here.
I have a winner for the Bride of Frankenstein canvas though.
Holly, from Gypsy Spirit Rising!!
Now we can get to the rest of the holidays.
Which I am looking forward to..
We're practically out of November and you know what December brings right??
Speaking of birthdays though..today is a very special day..
and by the way, if you get a
chance, read the novel, it's fantastic!
So have you decided what amazing treats you will be serving up
at your Halloween dinner this year?
I found more ideas on Pinterest:
Do you ever do anything stupid, like really really stupid..just to try and get spooked?
Not long ago, I had the brilliant idea to go out driving early in the morning...like 2:30 am early..
there are many many rural areas around this city...
There's one place that has old burned ruins..it's interesting and creepy..
a perfect place to get that Halloween spirit going.
Anyhow, we set off then put music on from various exorcism movies that have come out..
Well whatever thread we were listening to not only had the music on, but there were also
audio recordings from actual exorcisms.
After listening to a couple of seconds of this infernal screeching
I asked what the Hell we were listening to..
Once we found out what the real source was
we became hyper aware of our surroundings..
full moon...sky..fields.. haystacks...Satan probably watching us from behind the haystacks..
Sooooo we turned the car around to get our asses back home ASAP!
It was quiet for a few minutes
but then a bird flew out towards the car!
The scream that we all emitted put all those possessed people to shame...
needless to say, we wont be doing that again:)
Let's huddle together one last time this season..
The air is chilly and the tart scent of caramel apples is floating on the breeze around us...
I'd like to tell you about a dream I had a while ago...
I was visiting my cousin at the old ranch they lived in
when I was a child...
There were many apple and pecan orchards surrounding
the house and outbuildings,
Of course, in my dream everything was strange and unfamiliar,
the house was larger and it seemed dilapidated.
The paint was peeling off the walls and the doors didn't quite seem to fit the frames.
As we wandered around the property
we noticed the darkness creeping in very quickly...
My cousin suddenly panicked
grabbed my hand
and began pulling me toward the house.
she slammed the door to the room we were in
and locked it with a hook and eye.
The door itself seemed too narrow and short for the frame.
I looked at her to ask her what was going on and she told me that as soon as the sun set,
a terrible evil began to roam the halls.
then she got on her knees and began praying loudly.
I tried asking again what the heck was wrong with her but
she continued praying and began gesturing for me to kneel too.
All of a sudden
the door began pulsing and a loud pounding could be heard throughout the house.
I saw a pair of bright yellow eyes looking in through the space between the door and the frame.
It's lips were cracked and the long black tongue in it's mouth appeared forked.
Very quickly, I began praying..
The demon that was outside the door began laughing maniacally
then it too, began to pray with me in a terrible mocking singsong.
Come back soon..
I'll have a few pictures to post from our actual Halloween adventures..
Plus I have a Bride of Frankenstein canvas to give away!!
