See You At My House Halloween Night!

I just love to have fun on Halloween
as I am sure if you have visited
Purple Chocolat Home
this month you have seen!

We like to be just a little spooky here as
we hand out treats.  I engage my children in
the fun too.  This is my daughter and she
was beautifully spooky  in her full length black
dress and red velvet cape two years ago.

Spooky music is playing as you
walk up the front.  Sometimes if
the weather is nice, we might be
wandering around the front yard.  
If not, like last year above,  the door might slowly 
creak open
and smoke will flow out the door.
Not one word is said! (Hubby and I work
together to hand out the treats.)

It changes every year and we never tell
the neighborhood kids what we are
going to be.  They always beg to know.

We are dying for each one of you 
stop by for candy!

If I know you, or if you tell me that you
are one of my blogging friends, I will give
you a king size candy bar!

But make sure you speak up as
sometimes costumes makes it hard
for me to see who is who.

Everyone gets in on the fun, but not everyone is 
scary, some are just

And the little ones are always
(This is my favorite Halloween
picture I ever took.  I took my oldest
granddaughter up to see the witches
at Gardner Village and this black
cat just happened to walk up, 
stop for the perfect pose and do it
right in front of beautiful Halloweenish
doors.  I don't think it could be any cuter.
Of course, that smile just melts me.)

Beaulah and I hope you had fun
with us this Halloween.   

We witches know how to party!
(This was last year's and this year's
costume for Breakfast With the Witches.)

We enjoyed everyone's visits but now
she will be
taking a well needed rest until next year.

Thanks for all of your fun support.
We will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
