The Davis Graveyard

Welcome to the Davis Graveyard
in Milwaukie, Oregon

They have all the creepy stuff you are looking to see this Halloween.




Even Zombie Dancers
And ....they are Ghouls for a good cause!
The owners of Davis Graveyard teamed up with the national "Extreme Makeover" TV show to help out the Oregon School for the Deaf.

The show chose to build a new dorm, for the Oregon School for the Deaf, and when they found out that the school's major fundraiser is a haunted house called the Nightmare Factory, they contracted with the Bad Boys Scenic Design to refurbish the basement where the event is held every October. A crew from the Davis Graveyard spent 3 days, building sets of styrofoam brick and cinderblock walls at the school in Salem.
Tune in Tonight at 8pm on ABC

For a more up close and personal scare, the graveyard is open through Nov. 5th

That was scary....now I'm not going to be able to sleep :(

Party Food from Maggie Mae, Hootie and Baby Rocket Dog!

Party what?
Mom's mom,(grandma), was born on Halloween!

Can she wiggle her nose, like Bewitched?
She does have a striking resemblance....

What are we going to make for the party?

Olive Cheese Ball (for people)

1 block cream cheese
1/2 tsp. of Lowry's Seasoned Salt
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup chopped green olives
Enough chopped walnuts or dried parsley to roll ball in for coating

Place cream cheese in bowl. Add seasonings and olives and mash together with hands. Form ball, wrap in wax paper and place in refrigerator long enough to firm up if needed. Spread walnuts or parsley on wax paper and roll ball in it, until coated evenly. Serve with crackers.


This is Baby Rocket Dog and Hooties portrait, done by Asta's Mom!

Lets make Maggie Mae's, 'Hot Wing Dip' too!
Hot wing dip (for people)

2 boiled and shredded chicken breasts
8 oz. package of cream cheese
1/2 cup blue cheese salad dressing
1/3 cup hot sauce (Frank's Red Hot Original)
Dash of Tabasco

Mix up and bake in 350 oven 30-40 minutes
Serve hot with tortilla chips, baguettes, crackers or celery.


Both of these would be yummers for any of your holiday get togethers or even game night!
Thanks Maggie Mae's Mom and Hootie and Baby Rocket Dogs Mom!

Wyatt the Shutterbug

We are still getting to know our camera.
It has lots of features, like burst (10 frames per second).
It has a pet icon ???
Twilight settings, sports and action settings.
Somehow, we seem to get a whole lot of blurry!
 
Close up settings.
 
I'm here to be your model anytime!
Happy Shutterbugging!
Wyatt

Pee ess- Ever since we changed our template, we can't preview posts before publishing. Have any of you experienced this? We took the leaves off the template and just picked a simple blue background...then we could preview. But when we put the fancy leaves back on the template...preview was gone again??

Squash Addiction

It all started when I was a little puppy....
I just couldn't get enough of that squash.
Now, I have taken to stealing, to get my squash fix.
 
Oh...sooo good.
 
I don't even need to have it cooked, just give it to me, straight up!
Is there a cure for this addiction? 
Mom says, the cure is Pumpkin Pie, with lots of whip cream!

Mmmmm

Dia de los Muertos

On November 1st and 2nd, we will be honoring our deceased loved ones.


Stopping by, to give Grandma and Grandpa a little kiss.

Looking at the doggy images, on other lovely headstones...




Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead, is a widely celebrated holiday in Mexico. The festivities begin on Nov. 1, All Saints Day, when deceased children are remembered. The following day is when adult spirits are said to come home, gathering to enjoy a brief night of earthy pleasures.
Mexican sugar skull molds.

Each skull represents someone who has died and the deceased's name is lettered across the forehead.
Besides the sugar skulls, photographs, personal belongings and favorite foods are placed on the altar.

Pan de muerto (bone shaped egg bread)


dulce de calabaza (candied pumpkin)

Thanks to our friends from Mexico, for sharing this lovely holiday.

It's nice to remember our loved ones, in a celebratory way.
Love,
Wyatt and Stanzie

Rainy Day Projects

Mom abandoned us today, to go make jewelry with her friends.

I was not invited :(

seriously, I'm really not invited...

Nooooooooo.....


Here is a bracelet, that mom's friend made.
Now, that is a work of art!
Mom says her hands are better suited for holding a shovel!

Mom likes all things botanical.
She managed to finish these leafy earrings.
 
Hey Mom! Much better, than the scarf you tried to knit, last winter! BOL
I'm just glad, that my mom knows how to work a needle and thread, because my Polar Bear had a boo boo today. Good thing you are not a real doctor, Mom!
All better. For now.

Unleashed!

Sometimes we go to this no name park, in Beavercreek.
We have the place all to ourselves today.
It's just a big field, with a chip walking path around the perimeter.
Stanzie likes this place.
  
Not too exciting, but we can be off leash.
 
"I like to carry my own leash...thank you very much."
 
Look! I'm walking myself!
 
When we get home, mom wants dad to build a fire. The first indoor fire of the season.
But, I have the wood carrier and won't give it back.
 
Dad must improvise with the wheelbarrow.
 
The first of many more....
 
Hope you have a cozy night.
