well... i'm about to blow my cover here - but all in the name of good fun! last night my husband came home late from work and carried in Halloween basket chock full of goodies - he said... "look what someone left us on the front porch"... i was thinking that was a bit strange, cause i had been home all night - why had they not rung the doorbell? well... because they did NOT want to be seen... as they had "Boo0-ed us! my kids were so excited... they dug right in (eating the ghostly peeps in seconds flat - notice they are absent from my basket re-creation photo!)
the basket contained a scrolled note:
the story of :
The air is cool, the season Fall
Soon Halloween will come to all.
The spooks are after things to do
In fact, a spook brought this to YOU!
"BOO" is a shield from witching hour
Just hang it up and watch it's power
On your front door is where is hangs
It wards off spooks and bats with fangs
The treats that came with the crypted note
are yours to keep, enjoy them both
the power comes when friends like you
will copy this and make it TWO
then others here among our friends
will give warm fuzzies that do not end
we'll all have smiles upon our faces
no one will know who "BOOed" our places
and don't forget a nifty treat,
like something cute or something sweet
Please join the fun , let's really hear it
and spread some "BOO's" and Halloween spirit!!
here's what to do: you've been BOOed. Now its your turn to BOO 2 other people in the neighborhood. you shoudl BOO these people with in 2 days of receiving your treat. Hang the ghost on your front door so that everyone can see that you have been BOOed and will not BOO you again!This will also let you know who you can BOO. Fill 2 bags with candy and treats..copy this letter and ghost twice. include treats, letter and ghost in your bag of goodies for teh neighbors you choose. after dark, and only with an adult, BOO 2 of your neighbors. do NOT let the person that you are Booing see you - for it adds to the fun of it all! place the treat on the door step, ring the doorbell and RUN! it will be fun to see how many ghosts will appear in our neighborhood by Halloween! please keep it safe and fun!!
here's the link to print letter - if you care to Boo your friends and loved ones! my kids were completely enchanted!! (not easliy done these days for 2 super-cool pre-teens!) they even walked to neighborhood after dark to see what other house already had "ghosts" hanging on their doors! plotting our BOOS for tonight! (we have choose our victoms and are all ready to GO! eek!)
