No surprise, but I am a witch. At the community Pumpkin Walk every year. This fall I scared the little kiddies. Actually, I unintentionally did scare a few when I cackled for the Herald Journal reporter/photographer. And no, I don't think that the HJ is going to run the interview. I witched on Friday from 9 AM to 11 AM, and the paper hasn't featured anything yet. Most of the time when kids approach I smile and ask them what they're going to be for Halloween. If they look a bit scared, I ask them if they think I'm a real witch. That's when I lift my 1/2 mask (green make-up irritates my skin BAD!) and explain that I'm really just a mom. Then I ask them, "Is your mom a witch?" You'd be surprised how many little kids nod their heads up and down. (Tee-hee!)
But enough about me. Here are just a few shots I took before my witching duties began:
This is a rendition of local cyclist, Brent Carpenter. The theme at this year's pumpkin walk is "Calling all Heroes." I think Brent's energy, enthusiasm and miles biked each year are all pretty heroic.
My friends Raquelle and Jeanette created this display. And they used nine of my wigs. (See Alison, I told you I've got tons of costume possibilities.)
This Noah's Ark display is well done! Click on this photo and check out the mane on the lion. Amazing!
I saved the best for last! I died laughing at the elephant's hind ends. Someone has amazing creative abilities! (Alison, the 'butt pumpkin' reminds me of the year that Ethan accidentally picked the 'butt squash' that I had growing in my garden.) You gotta love vegetables that resemble butts!
