Halloween Party 2012 hosted by A Fanciful Twist

 be sure to visit all the parties!
Thanks for Hosting Vanessa!

Come with my Coven on Halloween

Welcome, Welcome!
come be seen
by my Coven
this Halloween.

We are all strange
we all be funny
fur and tails
and me, the mommy!

Only four be mine
but others join in
but only through bribery,
a treat they hope to win!

Enter now enter,
all beware
it's food they want
so they will stare.

Our Coven's home has
webs and dust
it's creepy, it's old
but that is a must.

There's nothing to fear
so hurry along
have treats handy
to ward off an awful song!

Time for Introductions, there are types of witches many

The guardsman...Tom-Tom (

Dino- Head Guardsman  (
The Twins (
Angry man (
Our resident Clown (

Arial Security (
Living Door Knocker (

We have entertainers amongst us also

The Trickster and SHOW-OFF (
Star- the exotic dancer (on break right now) (

this one suffers from being anal-retentive and being a bit OCD (
SSHHHH, she's a ghost, but refuses to believe she is dead (
Gay and proud of it! (
The Friendly Alien (
My dear friend, she is a lesbian (also proud of it, and who can blame her!) (
This handsome guy suffers with low self esteem & separation anxiety (

Now, my own dear family

 my grandson
 yes he will, he NEVER turns down food!
 But he is also shy
 Pretty, my daughter
 getting up there in years
 she is SOOO OVER all of this!
"aww, mom just leave me alone"
 Caesar, my other grandson
 sooo sleepy!
 good, he is awake now
 what a yawn!
"ok, I'm coming, let's get this over with"

 Midnight, our baby
 still rebelling!
"jeez mom, do I HAFTA wear this?"

Time for the ritual meal

"Witches Stew"

Bubble, blubber, squirm and gloop,
Boiling broth of bat's tail soup.
Wobble, slobber, liquid goo,
Add the sole of one old shoe.
Spooky shadows dance around,
Of frogs and rats and snarling hounds.
Steam swirls rising to the roof,
Add one small ear and one old tooth.
Gnarly, scratchy, tickle and itch,
Stir round and round to make it rich.
Mushy, sticky, sizzle and stew,
They're making mischief just for you!

After our Samhain/All Hollow's Eve 
ritual and meal...
 **{one lucky commentor(that is a follower) will win this ATC, along with another surprise ATC or 2}

We always have a story...

© 2008

Hear ye, hear ye, all and sundry
hearken to my tale of woe,
here I stand, all groanie-moanie
dealt a bitter witch's blow.

There was I, a golden oldie,
wifey, son and daughters two,
simple life all cuddly-wuddly,
enemies were far and few.

Then last Apple-blossom Sunday
in the woods to gather fruit,
youngest daughter, lucky ducky,
finds a ring beside a root.

Back at home for munchie-wunchie
daughter's ring her finger fits,
dances round with hokey-pokey,
loves that ring to dong-dang bits.

Door bursts open - bitchy witchy!
Says we stole her magic ring,
daughter's heart goes achey-breaky
wicked witch begins to sing:

"Eye of newt and toadie-woadie,
spider's blood and mad dog's mange,
conjure with me, creepy-crawlie,
make these thieving children change!"

Next day early, wakey-wakey,
feels just like a nasty dream,
at the table, brekky-wekky,
daughter Minnie starts to scream.

Slowly she goes shrinky-winkie.
ring falls off and rolls away,
thinner daughter - holy-moley!
I don't quite know what to say.

Daughter Dawn is snoozy-woozy,
can't quite get her brain awake,
great idea from Mumsey-wumsie,
gives her coffee-flavored cake.

Brother Bill is mamby-pambie,
laughs aloud at nothing there,
sees my face, gets giggly-wiggly,
sits there laughing in his chair.

Wife blames me, gets snarly-warly,
spell has gone straight to her head,
grabs a knife, goes swishy-wishy,
I run out before I'm dead.

Now my life is topsy-turvey,
knifey-wifey's gone insane,
sits and stares all airy-fairy
says that spiders eat her brain.

Yawnie Dawnie's sleepy-weepy,
Silly Billy thinks it's fun,
Skinny Minnie's teensy-weensy,
can't you help me - anyone? 

{This was NOT the party I had planned, sadly time, finances and transportation were not on my side. so I did all this between 5:30 am and 7:50 am EST.  I HOPE you all enjoyed yourselves :) }

*** Remember, a follower who comments will be winning the above ATC (Samhain Greetings), plus 1-2 other ones. Drawing will be open until Next Saturday night, 11/4 at midnight.

Gina said...

" Fills a bowl for Minnie daughter,
Full of healthy fattening food.
Sprinkles stardust over mommy
to brighten up her darkest mood.
Casts a spell on Nasty Witch,
so Karma finds and slaps the bitch!"
Will that help?

Wendy S. said...

I can't believe you got your furbabies to dress up so adorably and were patient enough to put up with the costumes. My kitties would have scratched me. I just loved you party, Susan.

Anne said...

Absolutely wonderful, Susan! Now following you, as well ~ Happy Halloween!

Unknown said...

You must have had one heck of a time getting all those furry and scaly babies to stay still for you to put their halloween party hats on. lol.
So many fun poems and tales. Loved it.
