kinda creepy...

sewing these together was no fun at all ... ick

the Little Guy is the naming block for the Big Guy...

the Big Guy needs borders... 

maybe red roses...

or maybe not...

i am undecided...

abby normal

franken-kit-kats ... even less fun to make than the werewolves

i dunno ... they look more like zombies than Frankenstein's monster

recipe and how-to video are here
note to self - stay away from this website next halloween

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Ah! Very good. Would you mind telling me whose brain i DID put in?
Igor: Then you won't be angry?
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I will NOT be angry.
Igor:  Abby someone.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby someone. Abby who?
Igor: Abby ... Normal.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Abby Normal?
Igor: I'm almost sure that was the name.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?

to the moon and back again...

beastie boys

note to self - Wilton's black sparkle gel doesn't ever dry ... it's gonna smear no matter how long you wait 

they look more like chocolate pigs than werewolves, but adding fangs would have been too scary for the younglings and their nonna...

the recipe and how-to video are here 
note to self - she makes it look a lot easier than it is In Real Life

as for being a werewolf, Jacob Black had this to say:
It's not a life-style choice, Bella. I was born this way, I can't help it.

crinkly wrinkly

Lulu drew this Halloween picture for Auntia and me...
kinda gory for a 5 year old, innit?!?

and told me that she is the bleeding hand, Auntia is the bleeding star, and i am the bleeding bat...

when i asked her why i have to be the Old Bat,..

she answered with, "Gee, Nona ... i DIDN'T draw your wrinkles!!!"

Age wrinkles the body, 
Quitting wrinkles the soul.
