Halloween 2009 was a very rushed affair at The Qwillery. I usually have the decorations up the week before. Due to some things that happened over the last week I was only able to decorate on Halloween. I didn't even buy pumpkins until 3:30 Halloween afternoon.
I purchased extra candy because it was a Saturday night. Unfortunately it rained so I've lots of leftover candy. The Almond Joys and Malted Milk Balls are mine!
My favorite decoration is Dead Fred. His head lights up. I also put a strobe at his feet to make him a bit more creepy. I may add a fog machine and some friends for him next year.
The small humans dressed up as a Gothic Vampire and a Blind Phantom (you can see the red glimmer of the Phantom's heart).
Pumpkin carving was a rushed affair, but I think that they came out fine. The Vampire carved a Vampire pumpkin. The Phantom carved a creepy smile on his pumpkin.
This year I carved the Decepticon symbol (Transformers) at the request of the Blind Phantom, though since he was blind I'm not sure how he knew that I'd carved the correct symbol.
All in all we had a pretty good Halloween. I'm hoping that next year, it will be less hectic!
