Halloween Costumes You Can Make from About.com
My Life as a Realtor ~
After dropping off my clients, I made a trip to Wal-Mart to purchase some more Halloween items to complete our costumes – 4 wigs at $6 a piece – awesome price!
Joe and his wig – which he kept complaining that his hair was going in his mouth so I had to clip it back!
We were invited to my brother’s house in Brookfield, CT for his yearly Halloween party – my sister-in-law, Leia out did herself again with all the decorations! For our costumes… Melissa was a Pirate, David a Ninja, Amanda a Baseball Player, Sara a Gypsy, Jonathan was Britney Spears, Joe was Morticia and I was Octomom!
We had a blast! Which started with getting dressed – Joe and Jonathan both needed help getting into their dresses – Ha!
Then, we stopped at the New Fairfield Food Market to pick up a 3′ Wedge I had ordered. Since we were all dressed in our costumes, we debated who would be going into the store to pick up the wedge. Amanda graciously offered while the rest of us sat in the car getting stares from people coming out of the store – the photo of Joe above was taken while we were waiting and he kept getting the most stares – I was laughing so hard I could hardly drive!

We arrived at my brother’s and had a great night – food, drinks, a “Best Costume” award – which was given to my brother, Louie, who was a Bagel and his wife, Leia, who was a box of Philadelphia Cream Cheese – very original and hand-made.
I will be adding photos to this post as soon as I get my camera back – I left it at Lou & Leia’s! The photos above were taken with my camera phone.

A Poem from AlphabetSoup.com…
It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can’t be seen
On any other night.
Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.
In masks and gowns
we haunt the street
And knock on doors
for trick or treat.
Tonight we are
the king and queen,
For oh tonight

Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate….
Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Gate
the first one said, “Oh my, it’s getting late”
the second one said, “But we don’t care”
the third one said, “I see witches in the air”
the fourth one said, “Let’s run, and run, and run”
The fifth one said, “Get ready for some fun”
Then whoosh went the wind,
and out went the lights,
and five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

My Life as a Realtor ~
Halloween count down – candy, costume, Ticks & Treats for our yearly Halloween Party at my brother’s house in Brookfield, CT. Oh, I said costume – right? Well, I still don’t have one. Again, I just need to stop and think what costumes we already have. Melissa suggested I be a bunny – oh how original, but my brother does has 3 little one’s – so I need to keep it where I’m not scaring or shocking them!
Before the party, we will be going Trick-or-Treating – my younger 3 still like to go – and being a kid for as long as you possibly can isn’t a bad thing. And, even though all 3 of them are teenagers, Halloween safety is always important.
Along with some goodies and wine that I will be bringing, I’d like to bring a movie or two – Here is Halloween online Magazine – Top 13 Favorite Horror Movies – there are actually a few Halloween kids movies – again, we have a few young kiddies. And, I can’t forget the music…

My Life as a Realtor ~
Monday – looks like rain – Ugh!
Home today – working, cleaning, cooking, … I feel as though that is all I do – and you know what? I Love it!
Joe stopped at his mom and dads in Mt. Vernon, NY. His mom has a brick oven that she bakes bread in - Yumo! Too bad I have developed food allergies to wheat and corn – so no more homemade bread for me :-(
Joe’s dad had gone apple picking and sent us a bunch of delicious apples – I plan on making caramel apples for our Halloween Party at my brother’s house on Saturday.
And that brings up the problem of Halloween. It is in just a few days and I don’t have a costume! I am trying to do this on a budget – so I will probably just use something we have at home – I could be a Witch, Cat, Tiger – hey, we have a Batman and Pirate costume! Oh, and… we have a Jason mask from the movie “Friday the 13th”. Man, I still get creeped out when I watch that movie – and Michael Meyers in the movie “Halloween” . No other movies scare me more than these two. It may be because when I first watched them, I was young and they scared the heck out of me. Even as a mother of 5 and being 44 years old – watching these horror flicks brings those frightful memories, which come rushing back and make me feel like a scared child again. Maybe I need therapy?
Watch below… if you dare!
Really, the sounds and music in both of these movies send chills up my spine!
