next year

Halloween is over until next year. even though i was the bah-pumpkin Grinch that i am... we managed to have a nice evening. i made homemade Italian sausage grinders that i baked in the oven.. my youngest Christopher made cupcakes with brightly colored frostings, my sister and her MIL came over to eat dinner with us, we got a game of cards in until Alex got home from work... then we rented "a haunting in Connecticut" and watched it in the dark... what a frikkin scary movie that was, several of us screamed out like girls many times... my sister & her MIL [wimps, i say] sat with a blanket on them, and covered their faces with it more times than a nun farts.. [and we ALL know how gassy nuns are]. we had other ghoulish snackies.. like pureed salsa dip [blood] and tortilla chips [fried pieces of skin].. candy corn [dead toenails], and m&m's [bat droppings]. so despite myself, i managed to have a good time. i did it for the kids. Christopher was so proud of his cupcakes that he wants me to post a picture; 


so here are his little lovelies.. [note the creepy crawly worms on each]. i hope your Halloween turned out to be a good one too!

Mmmm, I love fried pieces of skin dipped in blood.

Maybe that's why I'm so gassy. Like a nun. And almost as virtuous.

What a delightful evening - I'm jealous!

We had five dogs in the house (very stressful), a bad wind and rain storm outside and no junk in the house. Bah humbug.

I feast my eyes on those cupcakes!

I could eat cupcakes all night long and those, in particular, look delightful.
