Park Hollow House on Halloween



Everyone going to get a treat.



They really go all out.  Dry ice machine. Strobe lights. Music and scary sounds.  There are friends and neighbors dressed up amidst the mannequins.  Some of the children stay on the sidewalk and watch and don’t go near the entrance.



Treat: Weekly Photo Challenge

Sweet.  A fun challenge to respond to this week.  Treat.

Jen H says “Treats and indulgences can take many forms. Share yours with us!”

Here’s a gallery from our recent trip.

Matthew saw the cake we ordered and said, “Ahhh famous frozen wind cake”  Icy wind came up as the recipe but we liked the sound of his calling it Frozen Wind.  It was delicious.

Once a Turkey

Actually captured this shot on the way into school last week before the holiday but it seemed a good one to post today.  It’s been pouring all day(Tuesday), the mood particularly grim and gray.  Snow is threatened but the temperature will have to drop twenty degrees. Don’t know the recipe of the smashed turkey dessert but it looks like Oreos and candy corn and a Devil’s Food cupcake were involved. I guess the green is frosting?  When I went to examine it after school, it was just a total grease spot on the concrete step. The smashed turkey was gone.

By afternoon, this turkey had disappeared. Looks like it took the bottom of someone's shoe first!
