Fog, Pumpkins and a Cheetah
October 31, 2011
One thing I do know, my cheetah-leopard-ocelot was EXCITED and doing her Halloween dance before school. This is all PRE-SUGAR mind you. . .
There are a lot of leaves on the ground – it would be so dandy to go jump and play in them, but they are soggy, soggy, soggy. We get a sunny day, then a rainy day, sunny, rainy, sunny, rainy. Soon it will be rainyrainyrainyrainyrainy.
‘A Nightmare Before Christmas’ tableau from my mom-in-law. Julia is obsessed with Jack & Sally. She’s never seen the movie mind you, but she’s got the CD and last year, I think she listened to it at least 100 times a week. The fact that I didn’t run screaming from the house is a good indication of the music’s fundamental quality, I think!
On Halloween morning, we woke up to some really foggy fog. I love fog. I also love the movie ‘The Fog’. You can’t ask for much more from a horror film than ghostly scythe-wielding pirates, now can you? I think not.
Julia insisted I take a picture of her Pillow Pet. Its name is Pillow Pet.
During pumpkin carving, we discovered that the mighty Rosebud likes to eat pumpkin. That’s going to make for a fun litter box, eh? Fiber! Laxative?
And we discovered that the missy takes after her mommy. She likes to boss people around and give nonsensical orders that no one can understand.
I love my BOO garland! Every year it goes up. Every year people get their heads stuck in it. I love it so.
Look at this. Ridiculous. I couldn’t do this if I had ten hands. My husband is ALWAYS going to be our pumpkin carver!
