The essence of autumn for me…sigh* coming home from trick or treating on a chilly Halloween night in the neighborhood at 8 yo, watching Charlie get football tricked by Lucy, Snoopy dreaming of being a war hero, Sally‘s indignation with Linus in the pumpkin patch..it‘s not Autumn without them

The kids carved their first pumpkin 🎃 I think they did quite well hehe 👩👧👦 thanks for helping them @TheWolfbehindTheEyes 🙃 @Jackal121 @Mishu94 @Cupcake12 @deeannloso @Butterfinger @BethM @Yuki_Onna #familytime #halloween #pumpkin #carving #boo #spooky
Here‘s a slightly different variation on the great pumpkin story I read the other day. This one has more quips about Charlie Brown (poor thing!) and I found myself chuckling several times. Jace patiently listened to the whole story. 5⭐️
Enjoyed a holiday classic with the family this evening and realized that my children had never seen a Peanuts special before. They enjoyed this one. I'll have to get the Christmas special...and ask their piano teacher to teach them the Peanuts theme song.
6 points for #TeamHarkness because that WWI dog fight was suspenseful. #scarathlon2020 @StayCurious
1. When I was 6 (I think) I was a belly dancer, and I felt FREAKIN GORGEOUS! 😅
2. The tagged book is the only Halloween book I remember as a kid. 🎃🎃🎃
Thanks @Eggs for the tag! And this is an open tag to anyone who wants to play. 🖤👻🎃
Here are the #Two4Tuesday questions this week. Thanks to everyone who played last week! I love seeing your answers! 🧡🎃🖤📚🧛♀️🧙♀️
🐯 I was around 6 and my mother made me a tiger costume with a tail she stuffed with batting and wire so it stuck up. She even painted strips on my face.
📚 Tagged. I read this book often when I was younger. Those were the days.
I'll tag a few Littens to start. @Crazeedi @Eggs @wanderinglynn
Spent the evening reading a handful of Halloween children‘s books! Got to get those points for #TeamSlaughter!!!! 🖤 Though most of these were 25 points, some weren‘t directly related to Halloween, so the total points earned is 386. 🖤 #scarathlon
I found this item, which I thought was unopened and in storage, while I was going through some mystery bins in a closet; since I was wrong on both counts I‘ve decided that it must now stay out at all times as it is my spirit animal, what with the mangled costume and bag full of rocks. (I know I‘ve said this before but seriously, what kind of monster gives out rocks to trick-or-treaters?!? And to only one kid in the group at that?)
Just finished one of my favourite Halloween movies!
I usually kick off any holiday month/season with Charlie Brown!
Because whats better than a great pumpkin rising from the patch & flying through the air and delivering toys to all! 🤣🍭🎃
+ 6 for #Scarathlon #TeamHarkness #Scarathlon2020 @StayCurious
Poor Charlie Brown. He always gets the worst of everything. He‘s the only one who gets a bag full of rocks trick-or-treating. This classic picture book has it all: hanging out in a pumpkin patch, homemade costumes, and a World War One Flying Ace!
1. Almond Joys
2. Black licorice and wax lips
3. When I was younger we always watched Rocky Horror Picture Show every Halloween, now we do Horror movie bucket lists.
4. As a kid it was cheetara from thunder cats. As an adult, zombie prom King and Queen with my husband.
