Happy Hallowe'en

Happy Hallowe'en!

Did you have a lot of children come trick or treating at your house? Maybe you had children or grandchildren to get into costumes and take out. Did you get lots of candy? Our area doesn't have very many children so this is the first year our building is not handing out candies.

On Thursday when I had Geoff and family and Ronian the new granddoggy over we had Hallowe'en dinner. I set the table for dinner in Hallowe'en style...

This is a big ole spider my youngest son Richard made a few years ago....it found its way to the table.

The tablecloth was black and we had Hallowe'en napkins... We each had a little loot bag of goodies and a puzzle.... A gummy worm sat in front of each of the plates...there was a pumpkin gobblin in the centre of the table but it didn't make it into the picture.


shhhhhhh...have a peek at what was under the napkin on the salad bowls of the 2 little ones...

Austin is looking rather surprised to find a trantulla spider....


Madeline, being the older one..*s*...picked hers up...


and proceeded to explain to Geoff, her daddy that its not real, you know.....

I didn't seem to take anymore pictures.. I think we were hungry instead. It was a spaghetti night with apple crisp for dessert. I'm sure both Madeline and Austin are having a good trick or treating time right now as I type this..... fun...

We were at the cottage again for the weekend. There won't be many more weekends there this fall before Marc closes it for the winter. The wind was just howling last night but we were nice and warm with the fireplace on...almost all the colourful leaves have blown to the ground.

On Friday night Marc and I watched Hallowe'en II in honour of......
What did you do during the Hallowe'en weekend?...
Have a great start to the week... Judi xoxo

Lovely Halloween table! Those spiders hidden under the napkins were devine!!! LOL.

Your cabin stay sounded so nice with the fireplace! I am jeal9ous of that!

The weather here is so much milder, with cool breezes quite often and tonight, while trick or treating with the grands, it was extremely pleasant!!!

Have a wonderful week, Judi!!!

What a great surprise, that spider. Very cute idea on the Halloween dinner complete with goodie bags. Not much going on here. There was confusion as to when trick or treating was to happen. Some on Sat and some--well, one--on Sun. We are left with a basket of candy. Now I have to figure out how to get rid of it. Sad about having to close the cottage soon. But you can look forward to spring and opening it again. Take care and enjoy your week.

What a wonderful evening!! That looks like so much fun!
We live out in the woods so no trick or treaters. We always have trunk or treat at church then go over to my brother in laws. Cade tricks or treats with cousins and Dad while the Mom's hand out the candy!
Have a Happy Monday!
