The Spooktacular Halloween in the Forest


Every direction that I go, I am seeing Gobblins and Ghosts and GUESTS!
As soon as the darkness started closing in, things began to look a little CREEPY!
VERY CREEPY!
AND SPOOKEY!

I am not sure why I was a litte AFRAID.
All my friends are here, and we are going to have FUN!

My first guests to arrive, strolled up my long WINDING driveway.
They looked like they had walked for MILES and MILES.
I strained my eyes, and stood in awe, as I saw a Shining Knight.

To the left of The Shining Knight, was a very Gentle Soul with the kindest eyes.
I recognized BOTH of them. Right from the very beginning-- I knew who they were.
It was Thunder Dog and Phantom from the OP Pak.
With tail wags and doggied kisses, we said hello to each other.
To the right of them, was the most beautiful, Miss Fluffy Tail herself- Khyra!

Following behind the wagging fluffy tails, my eyes gazed down the path where something reminded me of myself. It was a pug with the most beautiful tail and sparkling eyes. Around it's neck was little charms and sparkly sequins. I stopped to investigate and looking deep into the brown eyes the secret was revealed. It was my friend Merox- she was dressed like a pug- just like me.
I was honored that she had left her human world to come to my party.

I was amazed when my eyes gazed into the DEEP forest.
I saw a trail of candles and lanterns twinking as the procession of all my friends, followed each other, trick or treating---- into the forest.
Into the forest they went!
Here comes a big KITTY- a huge KITYY- IT'S A LION.
It purrred as it walked- it's tail wagged in the air like it was a flag.
The lion was my friend Diane! Sweet Diane.
The long procession traveled through the paths in my yard, and UP, UP, UP into the magical forest, where the mystical mist was settling EVERYWHERE.
The forest smelled like mint.
The leaves were a teapot of Autumn Brew.
The candles and lantern shone like stars in the SKY.
So many STARS!
So many STARS!

There was my friend little Otis - His costume was a Little Devil.
He carried a pitch fork!
WATCH OUT!
WATCH OUT, I YELLED.
WATCH OUT!
There was another Little Devil- Omalley, with red horns.
Yes they looked mighty scary!
YIKES!
SCARY - SCARY!

There were two ROYAL Kings: Hank and Dispatch.
Dispatch escorted his mommy to the nice cinnamon rolls and Cider that Salinger and his mom brought. Salinger was being his very COLORFUL self. He always shows his TRUE COLORS!

I felt like hiding when I saw Frankenstein, who really turned out to be Stubby. You could have fooled me!
It also appeared to me, that Franenstein had a friend with him .
As I looked closer, I noticed a prisoner.
Could that be Oakley? YES, it was.
They were chained together!

Now there were two doctors!
One doctor was Dr. Salinger, and the other doctor was Dr. Swish.
We always need to have PLENTY of doctors !
Salingers mom had a broken arm- she was a patient.

Here comes Maggie and Mitch wearing matching beautiful bandanas!
Everyone was envious of those bandanas , including me!
Did you see those bandanas?
There was Kong- he was carrying a bottle of perfume for ME! Evening in Paris perfume!

My yard was becoming quite FESTIVE ! There was dancing, there was cheering.
There was FOOD!

Right in the center of the dancing, up on the deck was little Cocorue. She was dressed like a psychedilic scary chi. DANCE , DANCE, DANCE!
No one was afraid!
Bats were flying everywhere!
EVERYWHERE!
Everyone was dancing.
Ben and Foo, were doing the limbo rock.
Howie Pee Pugpants , Annebelly and Java were jumping on pogo sticks!
Scout and Freyja looked like Dog Nannys- and they were doing the dog hop dance!
Dixie, Bugg and Sophie, Lucky and Roxy, were playing spin the pug.
Who were they spinning?
ME of COURSE!
ME of COURSE!
I was sooooo DIZZY!


Up by the turtle pond, I saw TWO turtles!
SPLASH, SPLASH, SPLASH.
Who could these cute little GREEN turtles be?
Sequoia and Emmitt- could that be you?
YES!
YES IT WAS!
The cutest turtles I have EVER seen!

And there was a BANANNA - It was Petunia- IT'S a Petunia bananna!
I was getting so confused. It was hard to keep track and see WHO really -was WHO!
The more I looked, the more I saw, the more CONFUSED I became!

There was the beautiful Scout, Charlie and Ollie eating the wonderful meatloaves that Emmitt brought.
Scout was not the only one eating those marverlous meatloaves! They were very popular!
I ate 4, all by myself!
I thought that I saw something flying through the air. To my amazement there was Peter Pan!
Peter Pan- show me your idenity, please!
With a quick tap on my shoulder, I could see it was Sally Ann .
Mack was imitating "Tink"-
There was DW all dressed up like a Fairy.
Arlo was a Bumble Bee! A friendly Bumble Bee!

With a sudden wind GUSH above my head, and a familiar sound to my ears, I knew something awesome was about to take place.
There HE was in all his SPLENDORIOUS beauty, the spectacular Owlbert.

And who do you think was on the back of Owlbert?
Well, it was little Sasha of course! Her little face nestled into Owlberts warm feathers.
Her BIG eyes peering in AWEEE!

I am still trying to keep control of this SPOOKTACULAR party.
This is a FULL TIME JOB!
I was making sure that all the Ghosts and Gobblins were friendly, and not to be feared!
NO FEAR!

Surprisingly to me , and hiding behind some bushes ,and trying to scare ME (me - chicken little )was Gidget, from Life with Dogs dressed like a giant CATS!
That did scare me!
I was SHAKING!

There was Pearl, and Becky eating TOFU sausages, and popcorn.
YUM!

My little feline friends Jane and Alice. They were sitting on the roof. They were playing with the bats.
Their lanterns shown like a million candles, lighting up the sky.

Fuji, Lilly and Benny, Max, Bajas and Virus were sailing on bubbles.
Up the mountain, and into the forest, the bubbles sailed.
High into the sky!
High into the sky!
Small Bubbles
Big bubbles.
Everyone was riding the Bubbles!
What a wonderful way to see Ghosts and Gobblins!
YES IT WAS!



Some of my newest friends just arrived.
Paula and her 3 pugs Bandit, Smokey and Paisley were dressed like the Three Stooges.
They were so funny. They were entertaining everyone! I had NEVER so much FUN!

Clip clop, clippity clop. Who can that be?
It really doesn't look scary enough to be a monster.
DOES IT?
I looked a second time.
I could see it was Tango Pony.
On his back, sitting like proud Queens were Annebelle and Maddie, and Jan.
Everyone ran to take rides on Tango Pony.
Tango brought a whole basket of apples, for us carmelize. And Maddie and Annebelle were balancing a box of homemade BISCUITS on their head!


Here are some friendly ghosts from the forest.
Don't they look like they are DANCING?
They came from inside the forest to join in the fun!
The ghosts were caught telling spooky stories to Pearl, Coco, Checkers.

Riley, who was dressed just like a Pumpkin , was listening to some great storys from the GREAT PUMPKIN.
Star, who was dressed as a Bunny Rabbitt was sitting on a log eating carrots with my friend Nibblet.
CRUNCH
CRUNCH
CRUNCH

I thought I saw a BIG fluffy Chicken fly by, it was Daisy.
Pearl was a Squirrel. Her cheeks were stuffed FULL of NUTS!

Rosemarie, was all dressed in Orange and Black skull face and cross bones. Very colorful, I must say. Everyone gathered around to stare, as she was so COLORFUL.

Al, was strolling along the quiet creek.
He was listening to forest sounds.
He was watching the snails carry candy corn on their backs.

Occasionally, we heard the PLUNK of the toads, are they dove into the frog pond.
Sometimes, a HUGE bat would fly over our heads.
Everyone DUCK!

The fog was settling on the golden leaves.
The owls were hooting.
My friends had traveled the worn paths into the dark forest to trick or treat.
They had little back packs, and mouths stuffed full of carmel corn, nuts, candied apples, and all kinds of treasures.
Everyone was tired.
They had stopped along their way to visit with the squirrels and Gabby the fawn, all the rabbits, and the crows, and bunnys.

I say: It's time to toast marshmellows!
It's time to REFLECT.

It's time to sit around the campfire and HOLD HANDS.
It's time to tell Ghost Stories!!

I had a wonderful time at the party. DID YOU?
Thank you all for coming to share this Halloween in my forest.
I hope I did not miss anyone. If I did not say your name- please let me know.

Nitey nite
love
Tweedles

Full moon, too last night. A perfect Halloween! Now on to Thanksgiving and turkey and dressing and all the other good stuff! Love you little Miss Tweedles!!!

Hi Tweedles! That was the best Halloween party ever. I had such a great time and I can hardly wait until next year. I love seeing all my friends, playing games, and having fun.

I'm still recovering from all the delicious food I ate at the party. Those roasted marshmallows were out of this world.

You are so lucky to live in the forest and I'm so lucky to have you as my friend.

Stubby xoxo

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Tweedles, as usual, you have our momma making smiles all over the place! Those marshmallows are looking mighty good☺

chicamom85 said...

Tweedles, what a night that was! My tummy was so full of marshmallows and candy apples, I thought I might be too chubby for owlbert to carry me. I slept very well after I got home. I had a dream that we were walking through a spooky forest and our Mommas were calling us but we couldnt find them. We were shaking and trying to comfort each other. Suddenly a swoosh came past us so quickly that we both yowled Aeeeeeee. Alas, it was Owlbert come to save us and deliver us to our Moms. Oh what a dream that was, I am glad we are safe.
