Spooky Walk 2009

My Dad was born on Halloween, which makes his name very fitting {JACK}... and every year for my Dad's birthday there is a Spooky Walk. It is the funnest thing ever!! I took the kids over one day to help set up so they wouldn't be so scared when they went through. And since there was snow on the ground, my parents decided to do it in my dad's huge garage instead of their little "forest". It turned out PERFECT! Talk about going all out...fog machine, spiders swinging, bats flying, lights, cobwebs, skeletons, old cars and parts everywhere. I tried to take pictures, but they don't do it justice. It was AWESOME!! My brother and his family came, along with my aunt and her family. I decided to dress up as Dorothy since I had my little Toto (Wolfie), the boys were Power Rangers and I surprised Pat this year with the gorilla costume. We had a fun/scary dinner and games and the kids all loved getting scared in the garage with the ghost of Farmer Jack and a gorilla driving a mustang {Pat, of course}. The little kids were terrified the most of Pat and so to seem less scary, Pat hid in the bathroom (that is in the garage) in his ape suit holding TP and pretending to go potty. The kids thought it was hilarious and couldn't stop talking about it. Another successful Halloween! I love it.
