As you know, Monday was my favorite author's birthday.
This Haunted Humpday is dedicated to him.
I woke up to thunder and lightening!!
The morning was gorgeous...
Dark, dreary, and then it started raining :)
This was the first movie we watched.
Helena got to watch her favorite during lunch..
She wanted to craft while we listened to some stories on
the Night Shift audio book.
We made Manglers...
(in case you're not familiar with the story, here's a plot summary from Wikipedia)
A police detective investigating a sudden rash of grisly deaths caused by an industrial laundry press machine discovers that, through a series of unfortunate coincidences that lead to certain ingredients (blood, herbs etc., used in an old spell to summon demons), the machine has become possessed by such a demon.
The story ends after the detective and his friend underestimate the demon's power;
and in seeking to exorcise the machine, they instead goad it into ripping free of its moorings and prowling the streets in search of fresh prey.
This is hers..
This is the one I made...
it's all pale and washed out because
I didn't use as much red paint as she did. hahaha
We set up our table with some of our past artwork..
This is a Mother's Day gift from my little imp:)
I painted this in January.
Helena came up with most of the titles to these items on our "menu"
Pet semetary pizza..
She asked me to cut all the pepperoni into tombstone shapes..
Desperation hot dogs.
Tom Gordon trail mix,
which was basically m&ms, mini marshmallows and peanuts.
A dessert that looked like a meteor.
Pig blood punch.
And our very special Father's Day Cake.
(not all the food was available to photograph, unfortunately, lol)
(don't worry, it's just a giant cake pop)
We lit the Father's Day cake and made wishes.
We ended the night with this..
There were presents too!
She was getting ready to go to sleep by this time but before she got in bed
she surprised me with the little gift she made for me..
It's a Langolier!
and a ring she bought me
on her last shopping trip with my older daughter!
These are the gifts I made for her..
This is Jordy Verrill from Creepshow..
He's a felted fellow.
and a tiny painting...
We had a great time!
We couldn't watch every single one of our favorites...
But maybe this weekend we'll catch up on more.
I'm not going to add a scary story this week because nothing compares to this
But I would like to recommend a story that is especially chilling.
Read it with the covers pulled up over your head!!
Thanks for joining us for this very special edition of
Have a spooky week!
