you’ve been BOO’ed!

by @according2kelly on October 5, 2009

around halloween, one of our favorite family traditions is to ding-dong-ditch friends & neighbors. we pack up several plates of goodies, attach the following poem & watch as the ghosts take over the neighborhood…

you’ve been BOO’ed!
the air is cool, it’s time for fall,
soon halloween will come to all
ghosts and goblins, spooks galore,
tricky witches at your door.

the spooks are after things to do,
in fact a spook brought this to you!!!
the treats that came with this short note,
are yours to keep, enjoy them both.

the excitement comes when friends like you,
will copy it & make it two,

we’ll all have smiles upon our faces,
no one will know who BOOed our places!

just be sure that you don’t tell,
keep it secret, hide it well.
please join the fun, the seasons here.
just spread these “BOO’s” & halloween cheer.

want to start the tradition in your neighborhood as well this year? print out your very own “you’ve been BOO’ed!” template HERE.


happy fall.

the temperature outside may once again be in the three digits,
but it is officially fall. have you broken out the candy corn yet?


this is halloween, this is halloween…

mod podged halloween frames

by @according2kelly on October 31, 2008

i was looking through pictures this morning when i realized i had never posted pictures of this years mod podged halloween frames. i love the fact that $1 frames from michael’s, some halloween-inspired scrapbook paper, a little wood stain & alot of mod podge can create such a fun little addition to my halloween decor. & i love being able to display each & every one of our halloween pictures from past years. i have to admit… i’m going to be a little sad, when it comes time to take it all down & pack it away for another year.


impromptu halloween party.

by @according2kelly on October 29, 2008

i love get-togethers, gatherings & parties. but i’m no martha stewart. my soirees rarely proper invitations, or even decorations. they’re usually spur of the moment events, that just sort of happen. today is an example of such an event. on monday i realized i had wednesday afternoon free. emails were sent & suddenly we had a party on our hands. at this exact moment of life, we are still deciding on menus & activities, but the following are definitely in the running:

veggie skeleton dip
creep crawly drinks
mummy dogs
lollipop cookies
spider pops
mini pumpkins
apple bites
horr-edible hands
pipe cleaner spiders
oragami bats
