Spooky Anniversary

My Anniversary is on Halloween. This was our second Halloween Anniversary. My husband and I decided to go to see films for the occasion. The first one we went to see is "The Time-Traveler's Wife" which I found interesting and artfully done, however,the plot lacked in a major way in a major place. Thankfully, this was at the dollar movie!

Second, we seen "Boondock Saints: All Saints Day" which was a sequel to a movie I really enjoy, this installment kept up in the tradition of the first. It is not a family movie and they could have done without a couple of scenes, however, that is true of the first one, as well. A really creative plot, excellent acting, and great film production.

This what I call a non-PC, as in politically correct, and is not for the faint of heart. I'm not certain I would recommend it to most people.

Nice people.

"G to PG-rated' people.

It is a very manly, shoot 'em up, has foul language, and questionable content, but other than that is a really great movie with an excellent plot.


  Stuffing the treat bags!

We never have trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood.
Instead of buying candy for the kids, James, my hubby, and I decided to create treat bags for our family, friends, and tenants.
Basically, instead of skipping the buying of candy we just transferred it to another type of giveaway.

This the finished product.

Filled with treats carmels, butterscotch, rootbeer barrels, buttercream candies and a mystery candy with a jackalantern wrapper.

And they are tied with a holiday ribbon.  
I like them and the folks who received them seemed to like them. 

I just love being crafty and festive, it is probably why I love the holidays so very much.

Love & Merriment,

Emily Ann Selden

  3. They made The Time Traveler's Wife into a movie? See how I get behind without TV? I read and very much enjoyed thebook. You should check it out if you have not done so already.
