A Day Of Scary Movies


On the agenda for this Halloween season wasn't the cutesy trick or treating events around the city. No no, we're past that. We've moved on to spending an entire Saturday watching scary movies. The funniest part of this is that the oldest two are terrified of scary movies. So much so that the oldest threw his plate of Chinese food (pictured above) in the air at the end of I Know What You Did Last Summer! It's the youngest, the nine year old, who is obsessed with scary movies. That girl can watch scary movies and then walk around in the dark by herself without flinching. It cracks me up because she reminds me of me staying up to watch the X-Files when I was ten years old.

It was a great day lounging around and watching: I Know What You Did Last Summer, Nightmare On Elm Street, Halloween, and Psycho.

As I mentioned above, the oldest threw his plate when he got scared. It was full of food. The dog was thrilled.

We enjoyed a little bit of Seattle for dinner. Well, rather goodies from Seattle. While at Pike Place, we stopped by a pasta booth and left with dark chocolate pasta. Following a recipe on the back, we made a homemade berry sauce and topped the pasta with whipped cream, berries, and chocolate chips. I could take this or leave it, but the minis LOVED it...probably because I was letting them eat sugar for dinner.

We did take a break late in the day and stop by grandma and grandpa Sheaffer's for some time with cousin Nora (before they left for home). I had a haunted house kit, but we couldn't get the house to stick together, so the kids just decorated pieces and then ate them.
