Just when we thought it wouldn't be, we turn up 5 days before, and announce a party.
So many of you jumped in, hooooray!
What sports, what kindred Halloween lovers, you're wonderful as can be!
Our teeny tiny 2013 party hit the spot for us.
What better way to soak in the spooktacular goodness of October?
I received a note inviting me to meet someone outside the flower garden arbor.
My my, how curious indeed!
Follow the path of popcorn and glitter and candy corn too it read...
So, I did.
I found a little tiny tea table, and ever so many garden pumpkins waiting for me.
Such beautiful pumpkins that grew in the garden, all sparkly and happy.
So ready for Halloweeeeen!
I spot a few fur babes...
Eyeballing the punkins.
And another sniffing around...
Wait sir, please don't eat the party trail, haha!
What a curious little table sitting right outside the garden I thought.
I snooped around a little.
Eager to steal a treat...
The pumpkins were chattering so loudly, I could hardly think.
Just then, I heard rustling in the flowers, so I poked around.
Sniffing garden blossoms, collecting some in my gown.
What is that I see?
Behind the flowers, looking back at me?
Who on earth could it be?
Miles is worried...
He's not convinced it's someone we should befriend.
Come take my hand sweeties, says the red headed man.
He hums a tune as he sniffs marigolds, on his way down the path to greet us.
His display is so lovely, he must be a-okay.
Should we run, or should we stay???
If we go, we had better grab these beauties and run!!
But you see, the Jack-o-Lantern cookies beckon me.
And sweet kettle corn?
We mustn't go.
The trick or treaters line up.
Hey, it's okay, they say.
And so we cozy up, and have treats with Mister he.
He offers me one of my favoritest sweets.
Big Hunk, oh nougat and nutty me!!
We all want some, even Matty.
(don't worry, he didn't get any for real)
The thing is, the sir has a plan for us.
A plan for the past...
I nod as I chomp.
Nom nom nom.
He is inviting us on a trip to the parties from the past.
And urges us to run, as we are being chased!!
Just like that evening falls upon us, as we surge to Halloween parties of yore.
A magical swish and swash of this and that!!
And here we go!!!!
A celebration of how we arrived at our 6th annual soiree.
The first time we met, I recall it as if it was yesterday...
With a pump organ and late night dances around the cauldron.

In 2009, we made our way through the forest, to a haunted apothecary shop.
It was wondrous!
And then, in 2010 we found ourselves in the most enchanted place.
It was quite the visit.
Remember the old woman?
Then the next year, we met under the huge trees, oh it was a night to remember!
A Magical Bash under the trees in 2011
We stayed up way too late, under moonlight and candle.
It was amazing!!
A whimsical party at the cottage is where we were in 2012.
I loved that old fashioned evening.
And now, here we are today.
Our 6th annual bash, and we didn't have to cancel.
We made it!!
Thank you to so many for plunging at the very last minute.
I looove these parties.
It's a great way to mingle with you all, and to infuse our own world with the fun of putting it all together, and making memories.
Thank you for the fun and magic!!!!
Here's to another year!
Hope to see you here again for another Halloween party next year.
From me, and the characters around here who are great sports.
2 furs, 2 humans ;)
The left hand side bar is filled with others throwing parties of their own.
Have fun visiting!
