A Fanciful Twist Haloweenie Party

Music Starts playing early in the day in preparation for,THE PARTY.....
"What's the matter what's the chatter in the moonlight ? What's the creepen and a crawlen that You hear? Must be Willard don't You know,He's a thriller don't You know, and a terror round these parts round these parts. He walks around in His UNDERWEAR,His great delight simply is to scare.........AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!! " Song by-David Gulino-My Daddy-1950s...
 As the day dims and the dark sets in at Coffeeberry Cottage the Owl family who lives there are full speed ahead at work on this Halloween party they're hosting for You.Mommy has Her little ones fluttering around helping.Such good tiny ones.

"Oh don't scare Me Grammie !"
The home is being filled with tantalizing smells and tastes of the cool Autumn season................

 The Ravens and Crows are tranquilized and fed for Your comfort and safety.

So let's....Dance Sing Eat :) Trick AND Treat !

 Later We can sit by the fire and eat donuts.I'll be dunking Mine in pumpkin spice coffee.

We can tell stories of spider web monsters and other creatures that might be found in the deep dark forest right outside the cottage.

You never know what or who's watching You in the deep dark forest........EEKS  Denise's GNOMES!  Thanks to My youngest daughter Leanne for some of the photos of Her Sweet warm Home that She has made for Her very young family.

Choose a doll....that looks like Maddie.


Help I can't decide ! For each Daughter and Granddaughter I have a doll or dolls that looks like each one.It's My own doll collection I started Years ago-when We had more money :/ I promised Myself I would only buy dolls that look like them.Some even look like them plus came with their exact name. I felt how much more meaningful that would be for Me and someday for them. The next Granddaughter I still have to buy for is Maddie/Madaline.So I was thinking about getting some help from You.Let Me show You a few that I found in My research.Pick which one You think looks more like Her.I will buy the one most of You agree on. If You find one for Me You can always E-mail Me the photo but I really don't expect that. O.K. here they are..........

This one was taken last Winter :)
I only included the toddler age. I like those dolls more because the child does start getting those cute personal looks. Please help  and join in on My fun :)  Hugs Denise

One Christian Who say's it's O.K...... if You know in whom You believe.

Oct. brings back wonderful memories to many of Us,even Us Christians.Of when We were little and when Our Children were little. Harvest festivals at church(many were in cute costumes).Crisp nights made warm by Mothers Chilli dinners and  apple desserts,looking for just the right pumpkins,playing with friends in the early evening,  sweaters on, jumping in the piles of leaves.You remember.    
Boys in the neighborhood hiding in tree houses and forts

and Us girls making homes in Our Play houses.Well,at least in Southern CA. this was going on.
My four Christian daughters wanted and have carried on these traditions.Their homes turn toward days of long ago that they remember from Me and My sisters and even their Grammie.

You may see if You visit Me later this month that Yes,I think of Halloween as a secular holiday,filled with innocent fun.I know ALL the arguments against it- I'm a 7th generation Christian, I have heard and discussed it-I know in whom I believe and am not able to be persuaded away from Christ.
BUT.....One thing for SURE is.... I don't want to be a stumbling stone to others that feel strongly the other way.So I will understand if You don't stop by and visit Me late Oct. but Please come back in Nov.    ; )    With love-Denise     joining : Sleep over Sunday

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
