TEASERWEEN Tell All and Costume Contest Winner!

Standard

 

 

 

Good Morning Students!    I know that today it might be a little troublesome finding a seat at a desk that isn’t already “occupied” by some kind of Halloween creature or decoration, but do your best!    We have Teaser Photo contest results and badges to award AND we have the winner of our TEASERWEEN 2018 Costume Contest to announce.    So it’s a busy morning!

I’m excited but the classroom is a little SKEEERY!

Do not be afraid……..just sit back and enjoy some Halloween fun!    Later on we will be visiting the cafeteria for our official HALLOWEEN LUNCH and Miss Dingleberry will be there to greet us with a rather frightening menu as you would expect for a Halloween meal.

Now, we must say again like yesterday that it’s wonderful so many of you dressed up for this occasion…………………you look fabulous indeed.

I think we’ll begin today with our TEASER EVENT from yesterday.    First of all we must congratulate the Student who was our FIRST COMMENTER!    Up bright and early and alert enough to be the ONE AND ONLY FIRST COMMENTER too!

DRUMROLL PLEASE!

Sharon of Friends Furever!

I was FIRST to make a comment on the TEASERWEEN blog from One Spoiled Cat on October 30, 2018!!!   WOO HOO BOOOO!

Concatulations to you Miss Sharon!    Then the Teaser photo was the next challenge and here’s the photo we had for our Halloween TEASER………………..

We waited to see who would figure this one out – we had a lot of peeps who guessed it was taken in Transylvania…..and indeed it looked spooky enough to have been BUT it wasn’t!    This is a photo of one of the TEN MOST HAUNTED PLACES IN THE WORLD…………..This is “Schloss Moosham”  (the Witches Castle) in Salzburg, Austria.

Built over 800 years ago, Moosham Castle looks like something straight out of a horror story mixed with a fairy tale. It is often referred to as Witches Castle, and the reasons are pretty clear. This was the location for the trials and executions of thousands of women who were accused of being witches. Now, their ghosts walk the corridors; the blend of witchcraft and ghosts is terrifying for anyone who ventures within.

However, the supernatural activity does not just end with witches and ghosts. The dead bodies of deer and cattle have been found in the area surrounding Moosham Castle, leading to speculation that it could be werewolf territory, too!

EEEEEK!!!!   Talk about spooky – so who guessed it FIRST???

CSILLA of Kolytyi !

AND THE CROWD GOES WILD!!!!!!!!!

Here’s your Special Badge Miss Csilla and concatulations!!

Now everyone settle down and we’ll let you know about the TEASERWEEN COSTUME CONTEST results………………

Alright students – settle down! 

Sarge you make a great Pablo Picasso………..well………….sort of!

We had a LOT of votes for the costume contest (110 to be exact!)  the voting was very close too……..!!   Everyone who entered really did an amazing job with finding a SUPER costume, but the students who received the MOST votes were:

Sunday Selfie Hop

Standard

Hello Sunday Hoppers!    Time for us to show off our fine selves in a Hop hosted by my good friends at Kitties Blue – The Cat On My Head.    How about joining us?   If you want to, just click their badge above, find the LINKY FORM, fill it out and you’re IN!

As many of you know by now, most of the time, my “selfies” are not pix I take myself – like some of you smarty kitties can do – instead my Mom seems to delight in taking photos of me when I’m at my most vulnerable…….asleep.    Yep – she does it – sneaks in and WHAMMO, snap goes the camera and it’s done.  Then she shows them at her earliest opportunity.   This week she’s done it again.   Yesterday I was in the guest room which is right across the hall from her “office” where she does her computerizing.  I was in the “Granny Chair” (the chair used to belong to my Dad’s Mom) having a nice nap.    Dad saw me in there and told Mom and she grabbed her camera and before I could hop down, she captured me on film.

Then – as if that wasn’t enough – she popped this photo of yours truly into Lunapic – chose the “Daisies” art effect and got this:

Then, as if that wasn’t enough fiddling around with ME, she made a jigsaw out of the artsy version!   MOM – time to stop OK?   OK!

Click this MINI-ME photo and good luck with the puzzle!!

Happy Sunday!

Bakin’ With the King, Halloween Style!

Standard

Greetings from The Castle – I may be the KING OF BACON, but I know how to whip up some Halloween treats so have a seat, get your notepad and jot this one down – it’s easy, and not just kids love them – Moms do too (I have proof!).

Yep – this is so easy to make it’s almost ridiculous NOT to make them.     Mom had a plate of these on the dining room table and while the only people living in our house are Mom and Dad, both of them claim they didn’t make them disappear but they’re gone.   Mom has the ingredients on her grocery list for this Sunday again – wonder if the same GHOSTS and INVISIBLE SPIRITS will stop by and eat this next batch too?????

Pumpkin Pie-Stuffed Cookies

INGREDIENTS:

1/3 cup canned pumpkin pie mix (not plain pumpkin)

2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened

1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon-sugar

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oven to 350°F. In small bowl, mix pumpkin pie mix and cream cheese; set aside.

In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until mixed well. Sprinkle work surface with additional flour. With rolling pin, roll dough 1/8 inch thick, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking. With floured 2 1/2-inch round cutter, cut 24 dough rounds, rerolling scraps as needed.

On large ungreased cookie sheet, place 12 dough rounds about 2 inches apart. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon pumpkin mixture on center of each round. Top each with another dough round, crimping outer edges with fork to seal. Sprinkle tops of cookies with cinnamon-sugar mixture, gently spreading around with fingers if necessary.

Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool on cookie sheet 10 minutes; remove to cooling rack until completely cooled.

See??????  Easy huh!!!!

I thought that’s what you’d say!

I want to make it perfectly clear that in spite of what my tummy might look like in this shot, I did NOT eat all the pumpkin pie stuffed cookies that disappeared from the table.   Honest.   I’m too big to hop up on the table ANYWAY!

Trick or Treaters will enjoy these cookies – just put two or three in a sealed baggie, and put that inside a cute Halloween treat bag.   FUN!

Here at the Castle Baconia, any child who manages to survive the alligators in the moat, the ghosts at the drawbridge, and our Butler who dresses up for Halloween, gets a TREAT!

Hope you all have a Happy Halloween……!  

Teddy, King of Baconia
