Halloween Is My Christmas
My birthday is October 29th and each year I say the same thing to my mom. If you could’ve held out for two more days, Perfect Birthday ever!! (Laugh). She shakes her head and calls me weird, because yes out of all her kids I’m the weird one. I’m the tattooed one who likes every horror movie or book. The one who watches Ghost show voraciously and likes everything that goes bump in the night. But I hate bugs *shudder* especially spiders. But when Halloween comes along my home, my life, my family well we are Halloween and it’s our Christmas. Sounds a bit maniacal after I write it out but we are. LOL
My house is decorated
front and back yard.
Most of the decorations are homemade by the family and the technological genius that is my Robert. Each year we add new stuff to entertain and terrorize the neighborhood. Mostly terrorize since we’ve made one or two kids run away screaming. Families come by and take pictures at our home and heck it’s just a good time for everyone involved. Last year we were a horde of Zombies and we at least try to have one party a year for the neighborhood with apple bobbing, pumpkin carving and Halloween egg races. As you can see from the pictures we go all out! This year will be Dr. Who themed so I’ll be a happy Whovian. Halloween allows each and everyone one of us to embrace that child inside. I theme many of my dishes around Halloween that includes green and orange Jell-O-cups. We don’t only hand out candy, but cupcakes as well. We’re so lucky to live in a neighborhood where families know us and we know them. But still we play it safe and check every piece of candy. I hope you enjoy the pictures and the entire Halloween experience this year!
Book 7 of my Dragon Series “The Paladin Dragons” will be out soon (November). Many of my books are themed because of my love of the paranormal and the what if’s of life. My dragons are my favorite because they are based off my favorite mythical beast. It never started out as a series. It was just a short story and then I listed the dragons of the Paladin court then it snowballed from there. The world developed, the myth of their war with dark serpent dragon race evolved and each new dragon brought a new piece to this puzzle. From book one to six we seen them mated and saw a king be killed and a new one rise to power. So far the books released are A Dragon’s Promise, A Dragon’s Heart, A Dragon’s Lair, A Dragon’s Honor, A Dragon’s Rage and A Dragon’s Mark. Coming soon is a Dragon Revealed. All can be found in digital formats for kindle and any e-readers, plus they are in print three stories to each print copy. If you pick them up I hope you are swept away through the portal to Paladin. Where dragons fly in the sky and they watch over us here in the human realm.
