Come on, come right through the gate.
Welcome to our hauntingly beautiful home!
The family's all here.
Mom will play a few tunes for us.
I'll be wearing my special birthday hat.
I even ordered a new pair of shoes; had them shipped express overnight broomstick to make sure I got them in time.
Mom's got a chowder simmering in the cauldron. I'm never sure what those crunchy bits are, but she says they are good for us.
Of course, we'll be serving our own home-made brew. Just watch out for the bartender ~ last year he was taking nips from his own "private stock" and went after all the girls trying to give them hickeys or some such nonsense. That crazy, Vlad!
Happy Halloween! I hope you had a frightfully good time!
