Welcome to the Halloween Party





Welcome! Please come in and make yourself at home. The other guests will be arriving soon. Help yourself to some refreshments, while you wait.

Don't worry, they won't bite (much).

What other guests? Oh, just a few of the locals who are dying to meet you.

They will rise from the swamp,

skip from the fairy ring,

creep from the dark, moss shrouded forests,

and fly through the moonlit night to get here,

hungry for your company and so glad to have you for dinner tonight.

Oh, really? Must you be leaving so soon? The other guests will just howl with disappointment when they find they've missed you.

Love your purple witch hat, and LOL, I have that same t-shirt. I also loved the simple but cute pumpkin quesadilla. I FB shared it for all the young moms amongst my friends. I've been so busy I missed officially signing up for Vanessa's party but I'm visiting and I've put up a new party post for folks who can manage to stop by for a visit.

What clever treats! I'll be right over.

When you get back on your broomstick swing by my blog - I'm serving brain tonic and three witches brew. Mildred the spider will give you a ride to the river where you can pick up a boat that will take you on one magical adventure.

Have fun visiting all of the parties today.
