We live in a neighborhood where it's fun to give out candy. We always get lots of kids and it's nice to visit with all the parents who are out and the neighbors. Many years, it's not too cold and we stay outside with the candy.

This year, we will be moving over Halloween, so no giving out candy :( ....

And while I'm thinking about it, should I change my name now that I'm going to be living in Pennsylvania :unsure: Seems like it will be kind of misleading :P

except that I am the crazy old dog lady hag who darkens the house and hides in the back room for halloween

Yeah, but I bet you use it as an excuse to stock up on Nuggets!! :lol:

We normally get lots of kids as we live in an old downtown area ... but this year it's all torn up because they're doing lots of work, so I doubt we'll have as many, but you never know.

And while I'm thinking about it, should I change my name now that I'm going to be living in Pennsylvania :unsure: Seems like it will be kind of misleading :P

We let the kids in the hospital trick or treat. What we do on Halloween with the help of their parents and volunteers, the kids who are well enough dress up and they get pushed around through the main floor and offices and different departments hand out candy and we get dressed up if we want. Since they said some kids cannot eat candy we do all kinds of things, pencils, stickers. It is a lot of fun and their faces light up. They also make bags up for the children who cannot come to do the Halloween Parade. My hospital has a childrens hospital so about 30 kids do the parade itself, and then there are a lot more that do not come out. We love doing it. I spend my money and efforts on my hospital kids and don't do regular halloweening at night.

this year we are taking my little neice and Tammy's boyfriends daugther who is 3 trick or treating. I will be at home a few days, since I will be getting married that weekend. We will also take any foster kids my mom will have out to Halloween. I love children.

We will be kind of in between the Warrington and Allentown Wegmans. This weekend, while up there looking at houses, we stopped at the Warrington one--it's brand new. It's close enough that I can go every week :)

I think what you do at the hospital at Halloween is great. What a nice way for the hospitalized kids to join into the holiday.

Mark proposed to me on Halloween night in 1974. We had taken my little sister out trick or treating, and then the two of us went out after.

ohh, Patti that is so sweet. We are getting married on the night they turn the clocks back.

Since you have been in the Warrington store, that is what ours looks like. It is huge! Lots of gluten free food too. In ther flyer this week there was a big section about gluten free shopping in their store. I am not sure if it just for the Harrisburg flyers or not but it was great to see. :) Another reason to love the store.

Everything is almost set..I was supposed to go for the final dress fitting tonight but due to work issues I had to reschedule.

We need to get our wedding bands. I need to finish my favors.

My wedding is a beach theme. We both love the shore and we decided to incorporate that into the wedding. Our invitations were a couple walking on the beach with the lighthouse in the background.

Our wedding cakes are both sea shells and beachy.

My centerpieces are Wine Bottles which still have corks (thanks to my coworkers for saving them for me) I am making messages in a bottle. The Bottles I have our huge and I will fill them with sand and small shells and roll up a piece of paper and make it look weathered and like a scroll.

My favors are white pails and I am going to put some candy in them wrapped in purple tulle.

I am not carrying flower bouquets and neither are my attendents, we have shell bouquets being made by a crafty friend.

My garter even has a shell on it.

am I leaving anything out?

Dear Everyone,

I have been reading along, just not posting. I have enjoyed every minute of it, too! :) All of the posts are so hilarious! Between Nikki's kitten farting, Susie's kitty journal, tom's ptuamfoolery, Alex's church bulletins, Richard's Viagra cufflinks, Bev's hair craziness and silly Halloween tips (I should try some of those) as well as Tampon crafts, and all of the hair talk, plus the emoticon interpretations, I am cracking up! :lol: I am desperately needing to catch-up on the OMG Thread, so this has to be a quick drive-by. I wanted to tell you a bit about my hair.

My hair is kind of scary. It appears to be man-eating. :blink: This is quite scary. I always have found it in odd places all over the house to a point, but strands of it have ended up in some very bizarre places that you would never expect. Take for example, my best friend's coat, despite she was not that close to me while we were talking. Chad (my brother) says my hair is like The Blob. :lol:

Now, I used to not be concerned. Lately, I am starting to think I should cut it for my own safety. :unsure: I have considered getting it cut and colored to look like Jennifer Aniston since earlier this year, but fear looking like a Chinese chick trying to be white. :ph34r: However, for a number of months, my safety appears to be an issue with its length. This Spring, I accidentally caught myself on fire while making pancakes. The heating grate is right by the stove, and a strand of my hair blew up into the flame and the next thing I knew, I was ignited! :o

Then, the other day, I was sitting at the table writing and doodling in my notebook, and my pen disappeared. I wondered where it could have gone. It was right there next to me! Suddenly, I heard something fall to the ground. My hair had grabbed my pen and it had just let go of it! :blink: Things are starting to get a bit weird.

Sincerely,

Jin

Part 1?

. . . . . Hallowe'en . . .

. . . . .

Superfluous spelling: Yes, Tom, I agree, these U's are fairly silly, extraneous, and only serve to confuse when it comes to spelling and pronunciation.

And you people have gone so far as to insert extraperfunctory punctuation INSIDE wourds?

Just what letter(s) is/are covered by that maniacal apostrophe in Hallowe'en?

...16 count crayons, 3 no. 2 pencils, glue stick, 1 box Tampax gentle glide, smock, etc...

Ohhhhhhhh my .. . .. . I may never get another chance .. .. .. (where's that embarrased emoticon?) so . . . ..

"Gentle Glide"? Was that some man in marketing's idea or is there any truth to it?

Susie!!! Day 983 of my captivity. :lol: :lol:

...must go do manly things and pry my mind from this mire

Or, as nikki would say, myre.

Time to tend a fyre maybe?

We're having (well- someone, not me, BETTER be having) a Halloween/40th birthday party for me cuz I love love love Halloween and getting dressed up and I want those ghosts! :o

WooooOOOOO-HOOOOoooooo!!

can i come?

And nice new av!!

20 ways! :lol:

How'd they leave out "uhhhhh . .. . .. .my girlfriend? .. . .. . . .

She's . . . .uhhhh .. ..about my size? .. . ."

:lol:

. . . .except that I am the crazy old dog lady hag who darkens the house and hides in the back room for halloween - Bev - don't slap me with a salmon - but I think halloween is just a major annoyance - :o:ph34r:

Aww that's no fun .. .. :(

I SO would've expected The Dingnacious One to fully embrace the whimsy that is All Hallow's Eve!

Dear blueeyedmanda,

I am so excited for you! The wedding is going to be fabulous! I know I already know what I want when I get married.

All I need is the groom! :lol: I was hoping for maybe John Stamos, but who knows? I would not sneeze at Zach Braff, or Josh Groban either!

Dear Bev,

I love Halloween as well. In Wicca, it is Celtic New Year. You can feel the magick in the air on this night! It is wonderful. The children in their costumes are so cute! Whenever it is warm, I sit out on the porch with a bowl of candy. I entertained a bunch of teenagers last year. It was so much fun!

Dear tom,

Let me see...I have a superfluous word for you. My name in Wicca is different. Practitioners have special names inside the circle. Mine is Weathr Keridwyn Fyrstorm. Your Craft name has to match your birth number numerically, so that is why it is spelled so odd. These names are sacred inside the circle, but who can anyone tell? :lol: You say this name to anyone, they will think you are on crack!

Sincerely,

Jin

It all sounds great! I love the "beach" theme--all your ideas sound so cool--very creative. I'm glad you're just about all set so you can then relax and enjoy the day. :)
