“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Haunted Humpday X

Happy Haunted Humpday!!!

How did it get to this?
The last days of October?
Why is the time flying by so quickly?
All these questions...
the most important being...
do you have enough chocolate for the trick or treaters??
wow, did I used to eat loads of it every October...
just doesn't seem very festive without the candy.

 So what are your plans for Halloween?
I am going to visit my daughter and niece in Tempe
for Great Pumpkin Night!
Great Pumpkin night started 21years ago
when my little one was two.
I don't care for walking around the neighborhood. it's never been safe and most
people just don't participate..So I thought it would be
nice if the tricks and treats came to us.
So on October 31st at midnight
the Great Pumpkin drops off large bags of the best candy and fun toys
to good little girls and boys
(that live in this house)
I really look forward to this tradition,
there's good food, scary stories and spooky music.
Plus I make one very special Halloween gift for each child.
I'm very excited to spend time with my two favorite girls!

(here's a couple of very early photos of them..
they were two and three here)

(three and four here)

I'm really hoping to get back to normal soon...
I love November...
Dia De Los Muertos is in November and that's my second favorite holiday....
And December is my birthday month  so I have to be better by then right??

Thank you for coming by to visit and share.
I really appreciate it.

Have a great week

Happy Halloween!


  1. I received my goodies in the mail yesterday and the kids ransacked my box, they were busy gluing glittery rats along the walls and taking turns with the pumpkin shades. We are getting pretty hard rain on Halloween so a great Pumpkin festivity would be a good fit, but were going to stomp through the rain anyways. I had a great time participating in Haunted Humpday and look forward to your future postings. Happy Halloween and felize Dia de los Muertos.

  2. The photos of your daughter and niece are just adorable! Your idea of Great Pumpkin Night sounds fantastic apart from being the perfect alternative. Loved the big black cat at the Zoo Halloween party, what fun. Too bad about the Predator costume but they do look cute as Alice and the Mad Hatter.
    Luckily for me Nick was happy to be the Trick or Treat escort while I stayed home to pass out the candy. Think I'm going to be stuck with a boatload of it this year as there is a possibility of snow, eek!
    Hope you're feeling back to normal soon. Thank you so much for everything and Happy Haunted Humpday!

    I agree, October has flown by, but I knew it would. Halloween is the day after tomorrow! Thank you so much for hosting these wonderful Haunted Humpdays, I have really enjoyed myself.

    Hugs and Happy Halloween!
