Happy Halloween and the Wednesday Medley

Trick or Treat! Happy Halloween from our house to your house. Boo!

It is Wednesday and it is time for the Wednesday Medley.
Terri asks the questions.
We answer the questions.

 1. You’re in a horror movie. Are you the final person left, the first to die, the comic relief, the skeptic, the smart one, or the killer?

I am the smart one. 
I will use all my knowledge of raising two boys, who have taught me a thing or two about survival. Not that I survived raising them LOL .. but as a girl .. you learn a few things as a Mom to Boys. Like when they start to fart and they really stink and it could kill someone. 

Yep, I am the smart one, I am going to survive this horror movie.

 2. While watching scary movies, are you the person who yells at the characters, the person with their eyes covered the whole time or the person who falls asleep?

I have my eyes closed.

 I have a fear of spiders.. my dear husband loves to put these plastic spiders around in different places to scare me. 
On the bathroom soap, in my coffee mug, on the coffee pot ....

 3. If you were dared to spend the night in a “haunted house”, would you do it?

No Way!
The last time I entered a haunted house was 2014. It ended up one of the characters knew me. We were entering a made up gulag room. My boys and husband made it safe out of the room, but the guard shut the door before I could get out. I just about died. Here it was a high school student that I was an aid in the classroom of. I did not know that until he started to laugh his head off from giving me the scare of my life. 
No more haunted anything for me after that! 

4. Favorite horror monster or villain?

I read Frankenstein for the first time last year. I LOVED it. It has become a favorite of mine. I recommend for all to read it.

5. Favorite horror or Halloween-themed song?

Bobby Picket "Monster Mash" 

6. Tell us something random about your week.

Our son Sam should be finishing The Forge today or early Thursday. His last big test at Basic Training. We carved a pumpkin for him.

We put our green light up for America's veterans.

America’s veterans are some of our nation’s bravest, hardest-working men and women. However, it’s hard to show them the appreciation they deserve when, back home and out of uniform, they’re more camouflaged than ever. Greenlight A Vet is a campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green.

Happy Halloween

  1. This time of year I repeat Isaiah 41:10 repeatedly....I don't handle scary well!

  2. I'm glad that Sam's final big test is coming to an end. It will be a big relief for him and the family.
    I love your pumpkin decor and the green light kind of give an eery atmosphere but it's good to keep the veteran in mind like this nationally.

    I enjoyed the Monster Mash video. Last weekend my little grandsons'school had a Halloween dance to raise funds for school and I dressed as a witch and joined in the dance and of course we danced the Monster Mash wth the little kid. I had a blast.

    Happy Halloween.

  3. Your house looks great!! Sending prayers for Sam!!!

  4. Scary!! I love your decorations, and that kitty inspecting the pumpkin is so cute. I really like Sam's pumpkin too. Happy Halloween!

  5. Your house is spooky looking! The green light is a good thing! Kids just love The Monster Mash. I am terrified of spiders, actually have arachnophobia. If Phil scared me like your husband does, I think I would have died a long time ago.

  6. P.S. Do you get many trick-or treaters?

  7. Love your green light! 🇺🇸 And your haunted house experience sounds horrifying!!!

  8. Happy Halloween! Great decorations! That scary situation seems unfair, but in a slightly funny way. (I have a slightly tricky alter-ego inside me.) Enjoy the trick-or-treaters!

  9. Happy Halloween Carla. Enjoy all the gobblins and ghosts trick or treating.

  10. Your house looks great. Hope Sam is ok.

  11. Your house looks awesome! Prayers for Sam that he stays safe.
    I picked Monster Mash too, just love that song! I enjoyed your answers! Happy Halloween!


  12. Yes! Light up those green lights! Loved your answers!! Thanks so much for joining in on the Medley today!! Those little boy farts can be deadly!! LOL

  13. I'd probably be the first to die. I never watch horror movies and am sadly lacking in experience. Lead me to a Jane Austen movie - I'd survive that very well indeed :-)

  14. Your house looks great for Halloween. I love the pumpkin for Sam! He's so close. You must be getting excited to go see him graduate!!

  15. I love all your decorations! Very spooky!
    I can only imagine your fright at the haunted house. Scary! I have never gone through one, I am much to afraid. But... I did work at one for two years!

  16. I love your pumpkins!! We carved some pretty good ones this year, too. Well. The kids did! ;) Horror movies are not my thing, I steer clear, although, last year I read Dracula, the original and I have to say, it was awesome. Maybe I should give Frankenstein a shot!

  17. I do like your decorations, and the pumpkin you carved for Sam.

    All the best Jan
