Ok so i am finally posting my Halloween pics for you all !
I tell you my house caused Halloween Hysteria in our neighbourhood. I think we were the only people around who decorated....hence EVERY child/teenager in the neighbourhood started descending upon us by 2pm.I had to ring poor Shane and tell him to hurry home via the supermarket because supplies were fast running out!
It was sooo funny and Sam couldnt stop giggling, he would even open the door and say to the kids "and who are you meant to be?", most of them were really fun kids and went to alot of effort to get dressed up, BUT there were a few boys who needed a good swift kick up the backside when they called me a not-so-polite name because i refused to give them candy. I politely told them my rule was NO COSTUME = NO CANDY and they were welcome to come back when they had dressed up. Maybe that seems harsh but i figured well, we went to alot of trouble decorating and creating a great halloween atmosphere for the neighbourhood and to have some rude kids turn up in dirty school clothes just to scab free candy really peed me off. So yep i was a bit of a witch!
ANYHOO....my sis and 3 of her girls came over, along with mum and John(my stepdad), my Dad and my friend Rexine. I took Sam and my niece Kaitlyn trick or treating, or 'Trickle Treat' as Sam was saying LOL, and it was really fun.Sam kept singing "Trickle Treat Trickle Treat give me something good to eat, and if ya dont i'll toilet paper your house", ahh thats my boy....LOL....
Most people were great and had some candy ready, others, well, the closed blinds and sudden silence inside the home were a dead giveaway that they werent into the festivities at all! Poohey to them i say!
Now you are all waiting for me to stop ranting and raving and show you some pics arent you?
Ok then.... without further ado.....
The Scary Trick or Treating Mob
Me (witchy poo), Sam (mini witchy poo) and my niece Kaitlyn ( Sleeping Beauty)
My little witch (no he didnt want to be called a warlock).Im lucky i even got these photos of him. This is a kid who nagged and nagged me for 6 weeks to have Halloween and to wear his costume and i kept saying No, not yet,...well once he had it on for 5 minutes he was over it! Kids...!
Geez the black and orange really doesnt go with pink at all does it !
We even had halloween cups with black and orange drink.
Can i tempt you with some yummy halloween cake????
Check out my Jack-o-lantern all lit up! Creepy or wot ???
We even had a lady come back with her camera to take photos. I guess people were just dumb founded by an aussie family celebrating Halloween ...who knows.
Oh but the highlight of the evening was this chair. Before you all ask, No i am not painting it.
Can you believe it was out on the footpath for council pickup???? My Dad found it on his way home, via the shops, and he carried it all the way back to my house for me! I am slowly teaching him the art of scabbing off the side of the road LOL. Looks like its working too. What a find!
In the end a good time was had by all and we were all well and truly exhausted by the time it was over. Now its time to pull the orange and black decorations down and get started on pink and white Christmas decorations...YAY now thats more like it :)
p.s currently working on lots of gorgous creations at the moment so stay tuned!
