We love Halloween!!! We love the way the house looks and smells. We love the stories about ghosts and witches and ghouls and goblins and all of the things that go bump in the night and we love the scary movies as long as our blankets are there to hide under. We love Halloween!!! It’s the very best way to start the holiday season. But of all of the things we love about Halloween we love our party the best.
We had our party last night and it was so much fun. We played, “PIN THE LEG ON THE SKELLY” and “TOSS THE BAT INTO THE BELFRY” and a game that Wednesday and Pugsley taught us, “WAKE THE DEAD”.
We bobbed for apples and played a game where we sat in a circle and told a ghost story with us each taking a turn making up a part to add to the story. Wednesday is really good at this game. We also had a CANDY BAR HUNT that was a lot like an Easter egg hunt except we hunted for candy bars. Mom made sure we had plenty of treats.
She made us yummy popcorn balls……
and candy apples……..
And she let us help ourselves to the candies in the BOO! Box…
and the BOO! bucket.........
and she made us pumpkin bars but we forgot to take a picture before we ate them all.
And all of the while we are dressed up in really great costumes.
It's really great that we can tell our mom what we want to dress up as and she makes us our costumes. She even makes costumes for some of our friends. This year we had an idea that is just short of genius if we do say so ourselves. The idea first came to us right after we came home from summer camp and were telling our friends about all of the good times we had. Dory said it was too bad she wasn’t a bear so she could go with us. We thought it was a shame too and then we talked about her disguising herself as a bear so she can go with us next year. That is what gave us the idea for our costumes. That and a movie we heard about but our mom wouldn’t let us see. We went to the Halloween party as the
“BEAR WITCH PROJECT”.
What Mom doesn’t know is Dory is going to use her costume to go to Camp Good Bear with us next year.

I can't be a witch. Everybeary knows a princess can't be a witch. I'm too pretty!
Our friends Pugsley the mummy and Wednesday
Our cousin Agnes May has come to live with us and was eager to become one of the Bear Witches. She was living with her gramma but she and our mom decided it would be better for her to live with us so she would be around others her own age. She and Wednesday seem to have become friends already.
"Sis, do you think you should be letting the little ones have all of those sweets? They'll be climbing the walls and bouncing off the ceiling before too much longer at this rate."
"Don't worry about them getting too many sweets. They're pretty good at knowing when they've had enough. Did you need something Oakley?"
"Mom, Wilbear wants to know if there are more marshmellows to go with the hot chocolate."
We thought you might like to see the zombie bunny that our aunt Maggie made. Isn't he the cutest thing??
We're still worn out from our party. Mom says we were on a sugar high and then we all crashed. Not sure what that means. Anyway, we're going to let Mom have a turn to say something and we're going to go snuggle under our blankies for a nap.

I thought I'd better take a moment to give Maggie credit for her contribution on this post. The three little old lady dolls were made by her. She told me they were of her, Marlene and me. I really don't think we look like that but I might be wrong. I'm the one sitting on the sofa. The zombie bunny she made last year and I've wanted it since I first saw it and now he's mine.
I've got to carve some pumpkins to set out on the porch for tonight's trick-or-treaters so I'll just wish you all a
and as always, thanks for stopping by
