I don't do halloween much. It's not that I don't like it, its just pointless to me. The end result is hyper children in my house and annoying children in the community. Yeah, bah humbug. I'm going to blame Mesa who was terrified of halloween activities when she was little and we couldn't talk her out of it for YEARS. So we abandoned all halloween until she promised me she was a big girl and could handle it (I think she was 12? haha)

Well this year, something got into me. I'm sure it was viral. I just couldn't help myself. I actually decorated my car and did trunk or treat at the church. I even went as far as to irritate the children by insisting that if they wanted some of MY candy, they would perform SOME kind of trick for me first! It was great!

But I made one mistake,....

I let the kids talk me into stopping by the herb shop to "spook Mrs. Linda."

This little alien won 1st place in the costume contest for his age group!

She loved it that I had dressed up too,....and asked me to dress up for work the next day. I started not to,...but then my conscience nagged me and I did it. Thank goodness I did! She "dropped by" that day to see if I had!

I had to come back and edit this in. I realized it might not be easy to figure out what Mesa was. She had a coffin built just for her (seriously, they measured her and built it for her!) and this was her in position at the YSA spook alley at the church halloween festival.


  1. I love your eyelashes! :D
    Ya'll must have had lots of fun, I'm sure.
    I was a fuddy duddy and stayed home doing crossword puzzles.

  2. I know we are supposed to let our lights shine, but I never knew where they were located until I looked at the fifth picture. And I didn't know that's what those were called. I have now been enlightened.
