Hmmm...I don't like scary movies at all. I remember being really scared during Arachnophobia at a slumber party in the 6th grade. I also remember my dad and sister watching a Chuckie movie that I walked through the living room and was soo scared I had to stay in my room upstairs. I've pretty much avoided scary movies ever sense. Plus I remember a scene from Ptoltergeist that my dad was watching once.
2. What was your favorite Halloween costume from childhood?
My homemade Cheerios box that my dad made and painted for me. It. was. cool.
3. If you had an unlimited budget, what would your fantasy costume be for this Halloween?
I'm thinking a flapper- with a wig, fringe, gloves, heels, etc.
4. When was the last time you went trick or treating?
Me personally? No idea. With Wilson, last Halloween.
5. What is your favorite Halloween candy?
Twix, Kit Kat
6. Tell us about a scary nightmare you had.
They never sound scary when you explain them to someone else. I still remember a nightmare I had when I was young. I won't go into details but we were at a family friends' house and it involved horses. I think I was on one and couldn't get it to stop. I couldn't get off or something. I woke up because my mom came in and woke me from the dream. She said she heard me upset from her room. I was sweaty. Maybe I had a fever or something. It was bad!
7. What is your Supernatural fear?
I don't have any because I don't let myself think about scary things!!
8. What is your creep-crawly fear?
Big spiders. I can handle the teeny tiny ones. I hate big ones.
9. Tell us about the time you saw a ghost. Or heard something go bump in the night.
I don't believe in ghosts. Although you should ask Mimi and Poppy about their visitor when we were in Gatlinburg! They swear they felt someone walk past their bed in the middle of the night in Gatlinburg - but none of us did.
10. Would you ever stay in a haunted house overnight?
11. Are you a traditionalist Jack 'O' Lantern carver or do you get creative?
Very traditionalist. Though Andy is very creative- you should see the Pirate pumpkin in the Gatlinburg post! He does great with pumpkin carving.
12. How much do you decorate your house for Halloween?
We have one tub in the attic we pull down. Not much- a few decorative pumpkins, a cute candy corn pumpkin that holds a candle, always pumpkins on the porch.
13. What do you want on your tombstone?
Not even going to think about this one!

On Saturday the girls went shopping some more and out for pizza while the guys and big kids went hiking. We met back up at the cabin for the UK game and more hanging out! Each family carved a pumpkin with the kids (Wilson's idea was a Pirate!) and then got the kids in their halloween costumes so they could trick or treat with Mimi. We lit the pumpkins and roasted the pumpkin seeds. Fun! That night we played Texas Hold 'Em which was lots of fun. It was a perfect hot tub night too! The next morning Dan and Carol had to leave pretty early so we all got up and went for a pancake breakfast before the rest of us packed up the cabin to head home. It was a great time. :) A slide show is coming soon!

This is the new chest I found for $25. I was driving over to my sister's and saw this at a yard sale. I don't generally go to yard sales but ended up going back to look at it later that day, and it is working perfectly for all of Luke's clothes!
And here is his all time favorite book right now -- Choo Choo! He insists upon reading it EVERY night! It is really worn out as it was also a favorite of Wilson's! Luke doesn't care, he loves it anyway. It is a lift the flap book and he really knows what is under each flap!

(Make sure to hover your mouse over the pics to read the captions!) We had a great time at the orchard on Saturday! Stephanie, Meghan, Lily and Trey all went too. We found a perfect pumpkin to carve and Wilson and Luke each got a smaller pumpkin of their own too. Then we played! Luke and Trey rode a train. Wilson played in the sand and climbed hay mountains. It was a blast! After a snack and listening to the live music we were ready to leave. It took a little convincing on Will's part. He realized there were lots of fun things to do other than the sand!! We were really worn out by the time we got home. We bought some fresh apple donuts to take home- boy were they good on Sunday morning!
