Happy Halloween and The Haunted Ghost Walk

First, I would like to say that my heart and prayers go out to all who have sustained far greater losses and damage than we did from Hurricane Sandy.  We were truly blessed that this storm caused minimal damage in our local area compared to what others have endured. 

We managed to pull off the twins Birthday/Halloween party this past Saturday and the haunted ghost walk was a big hit!  The kids and adults all loved it!!   I took some pictures of it to share with you.





This ghost was the cutest thing at night.  He would travel back and forth along a cable between two trees.


This is another little scary creature I made using a tomato cage, Halloween mask and a black cape.  I called him “Johnny the grave digger”! 




The black tomb stone had a fogger machine and at night it looked spooky!  011


  The skeleton laying in the hammock was adorable.  He snored and his chest would move up and down.  



This was Papa's table.  His head was the witches dinner.   


We used a set of saw horses as the table base and a piece of ply board.  We cut a circle in the ply board for his head to go through.   The kids loved it!  They all knew it was “Papa”! 

Unfortunately my night pictures didn’t turn out.  I was so disappointed, I forgot to change my camera setting.   But here are a few night ones.










Our oldest daughter played the witch and she was AWESOME! 



It was a FUN Birthday/Halloween party and I think the twins and everyone else really enjoyed themselves.  

I would like to thank all of you who left the sweetest comments in regards to our creative attempts at making scary Halloween things for this haunted ghost walk! 

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week.
