I tried . . . oh how I tried . . . to get a blog post up for Halloween One.
But Tami’s fingers were glued to her computer.
“Look over there!” I said, “By the pool! It’s a red-nosed, winged, hummingbat!”
Click- clack-clickety-clack was all I heard.
You see, she was getting ready for her big book launch for Cooper and Packrat. She was wicked nervous and kept writing and re-writing what she wanted to say.
“Hey! I saw a yellowed-bellied frogamander in the ladies bathroom!”
I couldn’t get her off that laptop!
And then the big moment finally came! People just kept coming and coming and coming.
Tami made her little thanks-for-coming speech and then she read Chapter 1, as her little campers followed along.
And she only mispronounced four words. Not that I was counting or anything.
Way to go Tami! To see more about the book and her launch, go to Tamra Wight – Children’s Author on Facebook, or to her website, tamrawight. com
Now that that’s done, she’s headed back out on the lake to stalk the osprey, eagles, heron, turtles and beavers and I’ve got the computer all to myself! *rubbing hands together and laughing an evil laugh*
What can I say about Halloween One and Two?
This face says it all!
We had so much fun on Halloween One!
We built Frankenstein monsters . . .
. . . had a witch’s stew eating contest, played Halloween games and made pumpkin site markers so the kids would know where to find the candy!
But we had a different kind of fun on Halloween Too!
We had more Halloween games, searched for the scary snake, made ghost site markers, had a scavenger hunt and a hayride!
And guess what?
We trick or treated on both Saturdays!!!
Before we could go, we all had to meet up at the office. Why? So Tami could stand on her little box and give us the Blah-blah-blah rules!
I heard one little camper in the back say, “When’s she going to stop talking so we can go find the candy?”
Oh, wait. That was me that said that.
Here’s the trick or treat crew from Halloween One . . .
And here’s Halloween Too!
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I could pick the better looking group. My Poland Spring Campers are the best Halloween dressed bunch no matter which weekend you come!
Trick or treating was awesome . . . look at what these kids got!
I tried to take the Swedish fish and the Milky Way’s but they closed those bags up tight, tight, tight before I could get a hoof in.
Halloween One had a party by the lake
There were tons of games and tattoos for everyone!
There were even games Debbie and Maggie didn’t really plan on . . .
The costumes were fabulous!
Aaaaaaah! I’m being attacked by a shark at the lake!
Now Halloween Too was the same, but different.
We still had a party, but it was up at the store.
And we still had games, but they were all DIFFERENT!
Like this quarter toss game that Scott swore was easy-peasy.
So did the quarter land perfectly in the white box?
There was a sponge toss game too . . .
Halloween Two campers had some cool costumes too!
Both Halloween’s had fancy vampire teeth as prizes!
Halloween One had pretzels with frosting for a snack . . .
Halloween Too had a witch’s cupboard!
This mad scientist thought the cupboard was dee-licious!
And then a Knight arrived to do battle against some young . . .
Waaaaait a minute!!
Hold your horses! Medieval Weekend is THIS weekend!
How’d he sneak in to Halloween???
