Happy Halloween!

This year has been quite the year for most of us. We had not one trick-or-treater on our streets this year! The streets remained dark, and my area is usually very thriving and decorated during Halloween. Our decision to not pass out candy this year was spot on. So, we bought pizza and bread-sticks for dinner, made Halloween Snicker Doodle cookies, played sticky spider darts, put together some Halloween crafts, and GAMED! Tonight was a night for some of our games to participate in Halloween events, and it was quite fun. Hope everyone had a spooky Halloween night! 🎃

Throwback Thursdays


It has been fourteen years since I lost this beautiful woman I called mom. I sure do miss her.

Not a day goes by that I do not think of this woman. Her smile. Her laughter. Her sadness. This picture was taken on Tanner's 4th Birthday at our house. He is now 20 years old. Time passes too quickly. Cherish it and hold it dear.

Top 5 Tuesday - Creepy Characters


Today is Tuesday and this is my very first Top 5 Tuesday! 😉 It's hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads. Halloween is in a few days and today's topic is creepy characters. Here are my top picks and these were characters that left a lasting impression!

#1 Pennywise

This is still one of my all time favorite books by Stephen King. He has a really cool house in Bangor, Maine.

"I'm every nightmare you've ever had. I'm your worst dream come true. I'm everything you ever were afraid of."

#2 Ramsay Bolton

While Joffrey was a horrid individual, Ramsay is more cruel and has a profound disregard for others. The TV series was spot on with his character.

“This isn’t happening to you for a reason. Well, one reason. I enjoy it.”

#3 Hannibal Lecter

This guy is cunning and hyper-intelligent, and always one step ahead. His whole demeanor is ruthless. Just thinking about being in a room alone with him can leave you shaking. I remember the nightmares my mom had after watching Silence of the Lambs.

"Remarkable boy. I do admire your courage. I think I'll eat your heart."

#4 Ms. Danvers

Penned with incredible suspense and mystery. A housekeeper that keeps your house immaculate and pristine with everything in tip-top shape, only not for you.

"Sometimes, when I walk along the corridor here, I fancy I hear her just behind me. Do you think the dead come back and watch the living?"

#5 The Woman in Black

This Gothic horror novel is one that sends chills down your spine and gives you goose bumps. The movie wasn't too bad.

"They have asked for my story. I have told it. Enough."
