Well the grand holiday has come and gone, …. but not without some memorable moments.
Halloween morning, getting into the shower I heard one very loud “crunch.” As I am almost blind without my glasses I had to wait until I was finished and back on dry land before I could inspect the source of the sound, but I suspected and realized my suspicions were true. I had stepped on one of the biggest spiders I have ever seen. It was crawling around inside the tub!!! Thank goodness I did not see it ahead of time. Poor Daddy LongLegs went to his just reward.
Decorations… I did my best with the little I had— An old branch, some quality toilet paper to simulate ghosts moving in the trees, and a couple of candles in plastic pumpkins to line the walk. My sister who is the queen of halloween and has every decoration you can think of, lent me her scary ghoul that is motion activated… each time the kids got close to the door in their trick or treating, the ghoul started moaning. The treaters thought it was cool.
And finally, to keep myself occupied while I kept watch for the visiting tricksters, I decided to watch a scary movie… one that is quite famous but that I never saw! The Exorcist!!!! Ohhhhh. It was a true treat. With green slime, and turning heads, shaking beds and all things nearly dead. The special effects were scary once, now just funny to observe. But the story has its moments and some flying bodies. Well worth the hour to spend… witching, watching, tricker treating. OOOOOOOoohhhhhhhmmmmmmmm. 🙂 Hope you had a good one too.
The rain did not stop our resilient little ones and because of that rain, I am thankful I didn’t go the TP route!
Glad you got a river of chillins to come to your door on this year’s hallows eve…. The TP on the branches was a last minute thing… I thought it worked… wish I had more branches and TP drapping!
We never get the children up north because we are too far from town. Last night was so delightful. Six bags of candy later, I turned off the lights, put my feet up after a busy day and recalled how adorable all the little ones were.
Wow. Six bags! I still have some left over from my two bags… a terrible temptation. But I will try to resist… eating only one candy at a time!
