Happy Halloween!!!

OMG--I totally forgot to write my blog because I'm so wrapped up in Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab--is anyone else watching this show?? I watched last season and was completely sucked in by the patients and their treatment. It's a frustrating show in a way because you're really rooting for them to get better--but some of them are so bad off (like Jeff Conaway--remember him from Grease and Taxi? He was SO cute and I used to have the biggest crush on him. Well, he's a mess now--all kinds of drugs and semi-incoherent) that you just know they're not going to be able to kick it.

Anyway,this season is shaping up to be even better than last--not only is Jeff Conaway back--but his insane girlfriend is there too. Then there's Gary Busey who's as crazy as a loon, the drummer from Guns 'N Roses (who consumed 100 Valium followed by a bottle of "Jagermeister" and then some heroin--and lived to tell about it!) and the third place winner from the first American Idol. Oh, and Rodney King of the L.A. riots fame.
Okay, I've totally gone on a tangent--but if you're not watching, please start--I need to discuss it with someone.

So on to Halloween. We carved pumpkins tonight and it was more fun than I remember it being in the past! It seems like I used to be exhausted when the carving was done with my fingers aching from the scraping and the cutting--not this time! It was much more civilized. I made a little party of it with some cheese and crackers, chips and (the highly addictive) "Lil' Smokies." I also made homemade fudge (addictive too).

Here's Gooser ready to get his carve on!

Patrick working on his pumpkin:

Here's a couple "after" shots. I'll take more pics of them in their full candle-lit glory tomorrow.
Can you guess who the bat one belongs to?
A few more Halloween-related items...My friend sent me these adorable chocolates as a Halloween surprise. Aren't they cute!?! I screamed with delight when I saw the eyeball ones! They look almost too good to eat--but I will eat them anyway.
And here's a random pic of the Gooser eating a Frankenstein cookie.
Oh, and I was BOOed by Anissa and Kelly and Tenakim !
Isn't that cute? Thanks Anissa and Kelly and Tena!

Finally....bunny pic(s) of the day!

Happy Halloween.

Or should I say "Hoppy" Halloween!

I like the "text speak" pumpkin - really shows how we are so entrenched in technology these days!

Aleta said...

You have such an adorable family and what great pictures! Looks like a blast! Love the bunny shots too. Hehe

I must be the only person in blogland who doesn't watch TV. Like, ever. So no, I have no idea what you are talking about! I love the pumpkins-this is the first year in 7 years that we haven't carved them-the early snow threw everything off and suddenly it is Halloween! Those candies are really fabulous looking, and needless to say, kdis and bunny are all stunning.

Kathy said...

Happy Boo Day! Great table arrangements - as always - love the bunny

Jenni Jiggety said...

GREAT pumpkins....we need to step up our carving for next year!

Happy Halloween!

Just catching up on all my blog reading. :-)

Dr Hoppy is so cute !!! Does he chew on electrical cords? We had a bunny back in NZ, that almost electrocuted itself. It did chew through the antanae cord for the TV did the dog !!

Love the pumpkins !!!

I've watched bits and pieces of Celeb Rehab. Gary Busey is a total whack job. Any kid considering drug use should be sat down and forced to watch what drug and alcohol abuse eventually does to your brain !!! Not to mention your looks !!

You dressed up your rabbit? Bless you!

Becky said...

I love the bunny's witch costume!!!

Susie said...

Those are great Halloween pictures:-)

CaraBee said...

Great pumpkins! Dr. Witch Bunny is probably the best costume I've seen so far!

Kelly said...

Love the bunny's costume!!! LOL!!

You've have quite the busy day (and season!) Hope you enjoyed Halloween!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Could you please adopt me?
Would it be weird to have a 35 year old child?
LOL! Y'all are the most FUN family ever! Love the pics. Hope you had a great Halloween!

Shannon said...

I have not watched Celeb Rehab... but OMGosh, loony Gary Busey would be reason enough to start! HA! What a whack-o, that one!

Teddy's pumpkin is very clever! They all look good... I'd like to see them lit.

And I'm lovin' the "bunny pic of the day" :)

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real money.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
