Boo.

As promised, here is a photo of Snow White and Rose Red. Jane West said I could show her face as long as I kept calling her Jane West. Apparently she is Leonardo Di Caprio in Catch Me if You Can or something.

Swrr

Also, it's Halloween, so BOO. My head hurts. I hate everything.

So because I am over here battling a stupid migraine, tell me your scary Halloween stories. Do you have a good real ghost story? Here is mine.

I lived in a house that was haunt haunt haunted when I was a kid. Go read about it. It is spooky. Or tell me your scary tale.

You wanna know what was scary? Was Tallulah's reaction when Anderson thought he'd wander over to the bowl and see what Lu was having for breakfast today. Now, that was scary.

gurl gots to defend, mom.

  1. Can you sit through my favorite Halloween story?
    One year I would open the door just a crack and ask, “Is it somebody scary or somebody cute?”
    I said it and there was silence on the other side. I asked it again. Silence. I peeked out the door and there was a mother holding her 3 year old little boy dressed as a fantastic lion.
    She laughed and said, “He’s trying to decide.”

  2. Thanks, y’all, for saying such nice things about our costumes. They were fun, fun, fun to make. And hanging out with June and pets was da bomb. I enjoyed wearing a bird on my head and think I should probably do so more often.
    Maybe I should just wing it? BAH!
    I agree AHS is more campy than scary.
    All y’all’s ghost stories are awesome.
    Happy Hallowe’en.

  3. Pj, I love that story!
    Dad of Cosmo had me in stitches.
    I hate the big kids that come. and dammit if you don’t say trick or treat you get NOTHING! And NO they can’t pick out their own candy. Hubby got the last wave and he thinks they double dipped.

  5. I saw Abe Lincoln’s head in my bedroom closet when I was twelve. Not kidding.
    Well maybe it was Dad of Cosmo’s head, oh crap, now I’m getting all confused.

  7. Thanks for letting me know you liked the story. Always before when I’d do it there would be squeeling or growling or little boys trying to speak in big loud voices calling out Scary! Cute!
    And then one lone little lion who knew he was adorable by the way people reacted to him, but come on! Big lions are SCARY.
    We resolved it by my telling him he was the scariest cute lion I had ever seen, or was it the cutest scary lion i had ever seen.

  8. Love the costumes, June and J. West. Lovely!
    Wow…those ghost stories were frightening!
    M’s real-life slashing story is beyond…stay safe. And that Uncle Donny!
    I have a few spirit stories of my own but I don’t want to re-live them tonight! I’m already freaked/creeped out enough having just read thru all of the comments in one sitting…and I need a good night’s sleep!
    I wasn’t home when my daughter left out to T or T with a neighbor this evening but I picked her up when I got home from work and she had a pillow case! Ugh!
    Our last customers for the night were the nicest group of teens. No scary costumes, very polite and they each only took two candies each. My kind of teens!

  11. That is usually my last batch, Pamela, a group of four to six 14/15 year old boys. I’ve come to like them and have watched them for the last 4 or 5 years. They are always together and always about 8:30. They are polite and chat. I noticed facial hair on one of them last year. Maybe they just aged out.

    Mary Lou, spent the day with wee Guy and wee Guy’s momma today. Total adorable is what wee Guy is. I still seriously am amazed at how easy it is having a baby when one is not 20, immature and broke like wee Guy’s grandparents were. Thanks for asking 🙂

  13. Well, I don’t think it was a date but I saw him at a Halloween party at a church. He told me about it and said I should come so I did. Was pretty crazy, lots of kids and games and my son did not want to do what his kids were doing, so we did not spend a lot of time together. He seems a little shy or something, I don’t know. But we both had our kids with us, and were busy with that. So my bra stayed on this time, let’s see how it goes from here. He did find me on facebook though…and just as I was typing this is texted me. This must be love I guess, ha ha ha!

  14. Fun and spooky day at BBP with all of the ghost stories. Cosmo’s Dad made me laugh. Nice way to end the evening. We had only 5 trick-or-treaters, but we never have many because they have to walk up a big hill to get to us.

  15. K – I’ve got a ghost story… btw I didn’t read comments migraine all night and this morning… barely able to make house presentable for nieces and nephews to come and trick or treak – and WOW I went through 26.00 of candy in 2 hours, couldn’t crack a shade after 7 without kids coming to the door.
    Spooky…. I bought this house 6ish years ago, old farm house and during the renovations, which were massive since house was sooooo old (all new electrical all new plumbing, knocked out walls, new kitchen) I was also buying stuff for the house. I bought a day bed for the spare bed room, cute white wrought iron with these brass bulb things for each end. My dad and I went to pick it up with his Jeep and trailer and hauled it into the house. A few days later my brother came over to help me set it up and well we couldn’t find the bag w/ the brass bulby things for the ends… I looked and looked and remember there was some construction mess. Well few weeks later my Dad’s Jeep was stolen… I never found the bag with the bass dohickys and just figured either they were in his car or just lost in the mayhem. People have used that room… nothing strange until one day 4 years later I walked in there and the brass knobs were in place on the bed!!!! I kid you not. We do have stuff disappear around here (can opener most often) and turn up in strange places, but till those knobs on the dad bed in guest room….

  18. Halloween:
    What is with the parents who dress up?
    What is with the parents who stand at the curb and scream, “Say thank you” while the kids don’t?
    What is with parents carrying beers?
    What is with parents who smoke while walking up to my door?
    If the kid has to be carried around, they are too young for trick or treating and we know who the candy is for.
    Saw quite enough trampy girls – if you want to show cleavage, you’re too old to trick or treat.
    Almost no kids said, “trick or treat”.
    Several wished me a happy Halloween.
    Funniest, little boy dressed as Spiderman. When I commented, Hey Spiderman, he replied, “My name is Isaac.”
