Halloween thru a child's eyes. . .

Johnny a.k.a. "Big Daddy"

My son just celebrated his first birthday! He was born at the end of July. Last year, he was way too young to appreciate the Halloween season (even though I still took him trick-or-treating! I ate the candy. . .)It will truly be awesome this year to see Halloween thru his eyes. . .I will share my findings and my re-discovery of the holiday thru my son's eyes!Big Daddy

The Scent of Samhain

MacabreSnob

So I wanted to let everyone know that the Yankee Candle store in Brookfield Square has an assortment of limited edition Halloween candles and accessories in stock.  The on-hand stock is quickly depleting and the guy working today said when it's gone it's gone.  They have everything from tealight holders to votives to their signature large jar candles.  Yankee Candle has released Halloween themed scents including Moonlight Harvest, Patchouli, Candy Corn, Autumn Leaves and various pumpkin spiced candles.  Don't miss out on the selection if you're interested, get there soon!!

The Zombie Blog

MacabreSnob

This is my first blog entry in quite some time and for good reason: I've lost my creative edge lately.  However, I practice makes better.  I just wanted to say that your favorite Halloween website and staff are hard at work behind the scenes.  Site updates, 5 hour meetings, lots of coffee, hidden zombies, Review Crew.09 rising from the grave and plenty of new Haunts across Wisconsin ready to assist to the ICU (Involuntary Cowering Urination).  -- Cheers and Fears.

It's time to start shopping for Halloween decorations

Halloween Hodgepodge

It's that time of year! Over the past week, I received two email ad's from Grandin Road and The Lakeside Collection letting me know that Halloween merchandise was now available on their websites.

It seems that sparkle and bling is in for Halloween this year. The Lakeside Collection only has a few Halloween items, but they do have a very spooky standing ghoul that's over 5ft tall and is only $19.95!  They also have...
