Skull Pillow at World Market

This gorgeous skull pillow arrived in the mail today. Its now on clearance for $1.99.

Sadly the pillow on the right is now sold out. Most of the Halloween clearance is not available on the web site. The quality is good and the cover is removable for cleaning.

Dia de los Muertos 2017

I wanted to share the Plaza de la Familia with you at the California Adventure park.

The plaza is sponsored by the Pixar movie Coco, that opens later this month.

There are cards on a table in the Tree of Life pavilion. My father passed away 6 months ago today. Filled out a card for him.

Then you tie the cards to the memories of my family wall. Long cords with dozens of messages tied to each cord. It was very moving to see all the messages.

Thinking of those who have passed on today.

Halloween Parasol

One of my little splurges this Halloween season. From this company.

Over did it on Halloween Spending last year. This year, the few purchases, were hard to narrow down. My fear was this parasol might sell out. Turns out, it did! There was more talk of down sizing and moving to a smaller house. The thought of packing up the current collection of Halloween is a bit daunting.

Happy Halloween

My sister is Bugs Bunny.

The Great Pumpkin Project

The date and location were factors in picking this years pumpkin design. Well, like most of this year, things did not go as planned. It was supposed to be for national cat day in the neighborhood public park.

Placement was a little late. It was tonight. Stopping to get a quick photo at the picnic table as the light was fading.

Bench in the middle of the park.

Very busy family park. I hope kitty goes home with a little goblin.

Witch House 2017

Photos of the house in our old neighborhood that decorates with a witch theme every year.

Nice spray foam prop. The rest of the photo set is here.

Disneyland Halloween Trip and Party

This year we were very fortunate to finally attend one of the Disneyland Halloween Parties.

This was the very first year that both Disneyland and California Adventure parks were decorated for Halloween and the Halloween party.

The new Oogie Boogie sign over California Adventure is gorgeous!

Trick or Treat Stations were set up all over the parks. This fellow was a decoration in one of the lines. There is a certain glee to trick or treating as an adult. You get a treat bag with your Halloween Party ticket.

The Haunted Mansion Ride was paused to load and unload guests in wheelchairs. This gave me a chance to take some video of the singing Jack-O-Lanterns.

More photos are up here on Flickr. Loading more this week.
