Jessica brought glow necklaces for all of us, she also brought some Lays Chip chasers for the JD. I made some sugar cookies shaped as bats, pumpkins and ghosts. Jessica totally knew I made them with the help of Pillsbury. Haaa This all made the lines tolerable.
Lots of laughs and lots of screams later, I loved the real haunted house "look" inside. I particularly didn't care for the spinning room and that room that caved in and looked like poo. I about had a conniption fit when I saw the walls closing in and I see Lorraine on the other side. Rebbecca made a great tour guide with her devil pitch fork glow stick. The second haunted house was short lived. Thought I had more fun in the 2nd one. That may have been because I was in front and not seeing what to expect, as I was towards being in the middle the first time around.
I got some great ideas on decorating because of course I sucked all of that into my brain. I finally realized what those web sling glue guns are and decided I really need one. ;)
I had a great time with the girls and hopefully will make this a tradition amongst the bitches & betches, and go again next year.
In the meantime I am pretty much finished outside decorating, minus the strobe lights and fog machines. Added a lil fresh live moss, thanks to my co-worker. I used them around the hands and zombies coming out of the ground.
Finishing up the loose ends on planning the halloween party. Don't think I'll be able to do a kid party on Friday. :( this saddens me - but I've just got too much on my plate with my own party - it's called my brain! *cackles* We'll see...
Kids got their costumes this weekend. Jade is a Spider Countess and Dylan is a Wolf. On Sunday night the whole family dressed in our costumes and watched Halloween shows on TV after dinner. - A day in the life of the McGrath home. ;)
This weekend I would like to take the kids to the Haunted Hill and check that place out.
Until then my fellow ghouls, there's only 10 more days left till Halloween!
