Jennifer thought up this super-cool idea to have a Halloween Challenge for the month of October. I was excited to participate!

But, ok, if you read my stuff (and I am surprised and thrilled by that) you know by now that I’m always behind on these things. So… I’m going to try to catch up with this challenge in one blog. I hope that’s ok. If not, well… sorry.

Day One: Pumpkin- this is my pumpkin decoration on the kitchen island. First one I’ve ever done.

Day 2- Ghost- I thought although this house is way cool, it also looks like it could house ghosts without a doubt. I looked really hard for ghostly figures in those windows. Not even lying.oldhouse2

Day 3- Spooky- When I was a kid, we had a cat named Spooky.  I know, now your life is complete, knowing that. Ok. One of my all-time favorite photos that I’ve taken. This place totally creeped me out. When we came up on it, there was a large group of  black birds in the tree next to the house. And then, a huge buzzard flew in and landed on the chimney. Spooky for sure! I was so lucky to be in the right place at the right time. There was a definite dark vibe about the place. Wish I could show you a bigger picture.

Day 4- Cat.  I’m assuming specifically a black cat. This is Smoke. He looks a lot like the aforementioned Spooky. A little more of a goofball though.

Day 5- Haunted. This is the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, AR. It’s suppose to be one of the most haunted hotels in the US. We took lots of photos hoping to catch a ghost on one of them. We never did. It’s a really old hotel and cool just for that. They really play up  the haunted aspect and have tours of particular rooms & areas. Of course you have to pay for the tour.

Day 6- Candy. Hmm. No pics of candy.

Day 7- Monster. Well, this is a no-brainer. It HAS to be a picture of THE MONSTER- Frankenstein! Taken at the wax museum in Branson, MO.

Ok. That’s it for me for now.
