Queen of Halloween

Every year I get the comments that 
I am the
Queen of Halloween.

Well, this year, I felt like one.

I have never had so many fun costumes
and had so much fun
during October!  The many faces
of Mrs. Purple Chocolat Home
(and that doesn't include the Olaf
costume I spent two days making!)

The house was decorated early,
tables were set,
and we had lots of company to enjoy 
the fun.

In addition, we have been able to
run from one fabulous event to another
making this the best October ever!

We have hosted a Halloween Party
for over sixty,

We have tried out new treats and
new crafts to feather our "scary"

We made fun cupcakes that were on our 
bucket list for years,

We got to enjoy Witches' Tea at the Grand America
which is our first time for this at Halloween.
We had so much fun
creating quite a stir as
a Disney cast of characters,

while we enjoyed delicious afternoon tea
or hot cocoa.  The food was all fabulous!

It was so fun to hear, "Oh, can I have a picture
with Ursula, she is my favorite Disney Character?" or
"I want a picture with Snow White!"  or "Maleficent,
can I have a picture with you?"

Of course the cutest was, "Mom, the real
Elsa is here, can I have a picture with her?"

But in the end, I think Ursula
stole the show with her purple face
and waving tentacles!

We went to Witches' Night Out
at Gardner Village with family
and friends and had faces painted,
ate fun food and danced the night
away until our little witchy feet
couldn't take anymore fun.

Camera Shy at Gardner Village took
professional photos - 2 poses for $20 so
we took advantage of that.
The highlight of the season had to be
going to Disneyland for 
Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
where the Belles reigned supreme.

In addition we helped with Trick or Treating
down at The Shops At Riverwoods.

Can a girl have more fun than this year?

I doubt it! 

 Now all I have left to do 
is buy candy for over 300 that come
on Halloween Night!

Halloween will never be this fun again!


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.
