Halloween Howls ~ 2007

Category: Zuzu's Homefront Blog | Posted: Thu Nov 01, 2007 9:17 pm

We are Halloween freaks in this house, it's just that simple.

As far back as I can recall, I have always been a nut about it,
and I think that my hubby caught the enthusiasm from me.

We had a great time again this year, and had a much better turnout than I ever expected,
particularly considering that the day fell at mid-week.

A couple of friends came over, we had such fun visiting together over wine and nibbles
greeting the trick-or-treaters when they came to the door.

This year, they had to come through a spooky cemetery to get their treats.

~ Welcome to Zuzu's Family Plot ~

Come right in, the gates are open . . .
YIPES! Look out, there's a bat overhead!



Please step this way, we RELISH new blood . . .
err, I meant to say "visitors".



Many spirits haunt our little plot, and each one has a tale to tell.
Their tombstones reveal many details.



Meet "Digger", he does all of the "planting" around here
. . . gee, it looks like he's taking your measurements.
He's the lazy type, he doesn't like to excavate any deeper than necessary.



True, it is primarily a family plot,
but, don't feel too confident . . .
we DO make exceptions from time to time.



HEY! WAIT!! Come back! Why are you running away?? You forgot your candy!

Now that's how to celebrate Hallowe'en :) Your garden is looking gloriously ghoulish Zuzu. Did you have many Trick or Treaters?

BTW I think you should keep your bat avatar.

LOL, the bat does sort of suit me, doesn't it?

Glad you enjoyed seeing our "haunt", Frank. :^)

I think I'll just tiptoe back out of your garden now as Digger is definately sizing me up and the vulture is drooling in anticipation. LOL

You have more fun than the kids.ROFLI to would have loved to come in and see it all close and up front.Love it ZuZu.You all did a great job on your decorations.

Thanks everyone, I'm so glad you all stopped by to visit,
and equally glad that you each escaped Digger's grasp.

It's so very nice to meet you Biita,
thanks for your nice complimens.
Due, mainly, to my Halloween preparations,
I've fallen behind at the Stew and failed to welcome you there, yet,
I will set that to rights at once.

Glendann said: "You have more fun than the kids"
*lol* You may be right about that Glenda,
silly, isn't it?.

I've spent today re-organizing the courtyard,
all that remains now is to chase the monsters back into the dungeon . . . errr, I mean "basement". *wink,wink*

Your garden looks great. I like your decorations, I'll bet the little one had alot of fun coming thru your haunted cemetary.
I had fun as well walking around with my little one, I dressed up with her and thus a few people thought I was her sister.

That is so incredible, Zuzu! I love the tombstones, the vultures, the cat... I think I would have picnicked right there.

Thanks zuzu. Hubby and I had a major giggle fest over this.

I love halloween, but my family has stopped decorating. It is my favorite time. Thanks for the trip back to things I love.
