The front doors slowly creep open
You have been warned!
Even the butler tries his best to
scare you off
and Thing is on the piano playing
his spooky music,
but you're not scared off,
you know this is Grandma's house
and this is her annual
Grandma has set up her
kitchen counter as a buffet
with lots of
foods for everyone to enjoy.
You know there will be candy
and goodies tucked in everywhere,
THIS IS HALLOWEEN!
She has her wonderful
which come in an assortment
of four wonderful Halloween colors
Purple (so glad they included that color!)
And of course, orange.
They are stacked at the end of the
buffet before the creepy food
gets set out.
Shredded Dragon Tail, now that one got
some questions from both children and adults.
Rolled Snake, doesn't everyone want
bright green bread to go along with
their Dragon Tail?
Ahh, there's something not so scary.
No one could be fooled
by the title of this.
Barf Dip is one of their
favorite dips -
just 8 oz. cream cheese with
1 16 oz. can chili.
This one is a little scarier
because it is served in a ghost pumpkin.
A simple salad with
lovely salad talons,
I mean salad tongs!
It wouldn't be Halloween Dinner
Grandma going out to the swamp and
collecting some of her
And dinner hasn't even begun before
the little ones are helping themselves
to Poison Candy.
Again, you have been warned.
Ooh, yum, gummy fangs -
you are warned again and again!
There are even treat bags
to take some Poison Candy
home if you don't have a
stomach ache by the time you leave.
If you get thirsty later and you want to
try something a little more filtered
than Swamp Water, we have some
spooky drinks (Lanette's Apple Ciders
with Martha Stewart Labels glued on over
the original labels.)
We have to finish with some creepy crawly
treats. These huge spiders are
carrying their eggs on their backs.
And they appear to be migrating.
Not into arachnids and egg sacks,
you say? How about gummy mummies?
Or pick up one of the brooms
that our friendly witches have parked.
The Newsies group were here
as well as a gory beast and his innocent victim.
This girl has a frying pan and she knows
how to use it.
Do you think Rapunzel has used that
frying pan to defend herself a few times with
No one knew who this character was supposed
to be (all assuming he didn't dress in a costume)
but he proudly said he was his brother
(the missionary) - he had taken the glasses,
shirt, jacket and knife in his belt from his
Now that was a funny one!
Beaulah loved every minute of the
One of my little granddaughters said wistfully,
"Dad, it was a wonderful night wasn't it?"
That little one deserves a witchy kiss!
It made this witch want to get on her broom
and fly around the house!
