A Fanciful Twist Halloween party...

~~~I've had lots of comments on the skeleton riding the bicycle, the cemetery, the spiderwebs and this creepy critter living in the webs.
They are pictures from a Halloween Train ride in Nevada City, CA. We have family in Northern California and went there a few years back. It is a fun ride, if your in the area, check it out...It's spooktacular~~~

***all other pics are from our house, or past Halloweens***

Greetings fellow trickters...

I am a bit late to the party, blame the evil Strept O. Coccus

He does look quite menacing huh?!? I will not surrender, I have a party to attend {cough cough}

A windy tale
the west winds blow,
in this heat of hell
no one would know,
the wicked hour
be upon us soon
in 13 risings, 13 moons
we will be witches
and pirates
and sinners
and saints,
too bad 'tis only for one day!

~The tragedy of Macbeth~

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

Round about the cauldron go;
In the poison'd entrails throw.
Toad, that under cold stone
Days and nights has thirty-one
Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,
Witches' mummy, maw and gulf
Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,
Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,
Liver of blaspheming Jew,
Gall of goat, and slips of yew
Silver'd in the moon's eclipse,

Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,
Finger of birth-strangled babe
Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,
Make the gruel thick and slab:
Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,
For the ingredients of our cauldron.
