Simple family traditions have become very important to us in the recent years. One of our biggest Halloween traditions has always been that we always watch FRANKENSTEIN, the 1936 Borris Karlof original. Last year was the first that we were not able to because we had lost our copy and didn't have the money to replace it. But our new copy came in the mail on Saturday and we are ready to go!

For Halloween Yankee candle has put out some special scents, Witches Brew, Trick or Treat, All Hallows Eve, Pumpkin Patch. All hallows eve smells great but not very Halloween, its a mix of Evening air and midnight jasmine. Witches brew is a patchouli based candle which it not a smell that I usually like but their version really sets the halloween mood. Trick or treat is the best it is a mix of candy corn and buttercream and smells like a bag of Halloween candy.

Yesterday I went up into the attic to bring down some halloween decorations and I discovered that my scarecrow (Loomis) from last year needs some work. The heat of the attic has caused most of his hair to fall out and the bumping around he received during the move caused a lot of chipped paint, broken down shoulders, and a missing tooth. I had always intended to rework him into a more useable halloween prop but it looks like I have some restoration work to do first.
