Halloween Fun

As part of my Spooktacular giveaway, I asked you what your favorite Halloween experiences were so I thought I’d share my favorite experience(s) as well as my Halloween fun this year!

I loved trick or treating as a kid, but my favorite memories were in my teen years. My uncle has a decent amount of wooded land behind his house so he used to set up a Spook Walk every year. He would set up displays, have people scattered around to scare everyone who walked through, and in the middle of the walk he would stop by a fire and tell scary stories. I was enlisted to help a couple years and had a blast. One time I was a vampire in a coffin and I would sit up and scare people. The other year I had fun jumping out of a dark spot on the trail and again scaring people. Do you see a common theme there? ;)

More recently my husband and I have bounced back and forth between our place and our neighbors place on trick-or-treat night and we just hang out watching trick-or-treaters. Well this year we had a small Halloween party to go to so I decided to go all out. I donned a black robe and painted myself up to become…

The Grim Reaper…MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
**please forgive the grainy cell phone photos :)

Hubby decided to go a different yet no less scary route…

I wanted to have a grand entrance so when we pulled up to their place I told my husband to go in and tell them I was still messing with my makeup and I'd be there in 10 minutes. Then I went around the back of the house and stood at their sliding glass door and stared into the kitchen where everyone was hanging out. I was there for about 5 min then they started to notice and I really scared some of them! Mission accomplished!! Haha!! I probably looked something like this

The host of the party came up with some creative food choices.

Tapeworms, severed fingers, brain punch, scabs, edible ashtrays, a cat litter box, and corny turds.


And here’s me eating some of those tasty tapeworms…
