Now remember, you’re able to vote for as many “favorites” in the poll as you want to………..but that doesn’t mean you should go right down the list and vote for everyone – seriously – pick your favorites and give them your votes.  Otherwise when we try to get TWO winners (that’s right – the top TWO getting votes will be winners) everyone will have the SAME NUMBER of votes.

Remember you can click on the entries to “bigify” them so you can see them better…………….Also remember that the poll will be up tomorrow too!   Then at my PAWTY on Halloween, you can find out who those lucky ducky winners are AND have a pile of fun at my pawty too……………what a deal huh?

So, are you ready?   Have fun looking at the costumes – everybody did a FABULOUS job – my personal thanks to everyone who entered!  YOU ALL ROCK!

Remember to tell all your friends to vote for you!   They don’t have to post a comment or do anything but come here and do the poll………….Cool huh?   I thought you’d like that!!!!!

GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY!

Hello Friends!!!   I hope you had fun seeing all the amazing costumes everyone did for the Funniest Costume Contest – I know I sure did……….I also had fun watching the poll……….there were almost 500 votes cast – isn’t that AMAZING?   It was also a VERY close race and that’s all I’m saying……………….tomorrow you’ll find out who the THREE winners are and see their trophies.     Everyone who entered my costume contest will have a little “souvenir” in fact – a blog badge declaring to the world that you entered my 2014 Sam-o-Ween Costume Contest so don’t forget, if you were in the contest, please copy the badge for yourself tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone who voted………….and especially thanks to everyone who entered.  You all ROCK……you did a wonderful job with this year’s theme of FUNNIEST COSTUME – we had some real doozies and from the comments, I was NOT the only one who thought that!   I hope even more of you will participate in my party next year…………

The party will last ALL DAY LONG too so no worries about when you arrive – everything will be waiting for you –  including all the spooks and goblins and even the SNACKS!    ARE YOU READY FOR SOME SAM-O-WEEN FUN???   I hope so!!!

Welcome to the final day of voting in my costume contest! 

UPDATE:  Poll has closed!  Visit tomorrow to see winners!…..

That’s right – this is it gang.  After today, the top two winners with the most votes will be announced at my Sam-O-Ween Haunted House pawty tomorrow – a lovely way to kick off a night of celebrating as the Grim Reaper and all manner of spooks and goblins and scary people are out and about Trick or Treating……!!!!

I can tell you are all enjoying yourselves looking at all the entries but as I thought, it’s a VERY tough competition with voting fast and furious.  I made it so you SHOULD be able to vote again today if you wish but I have to say Polldaddy is occasionally not very cooperative so if you can’t – SORRY ABOUT THAT – hopefully you voted yesterday and your vote counted!!!

I put the Whammy on WordPress so MAYBE that will help if you have problems voting again today????!!!

HALLOWEEN EVE HUGS TO ALL……Sammy 😀

Ha Ha Halloween

Well we’re sneaking up on Halloween aren’t we…..!  My blogging buddies are gearing up with costume contests, fun posters with “monster shots” of all of us, writing contests for spooky stories – all kinds of fun. 

I’m still trying to figure out what to be for Halloween.  The best suggestion I’ve had yet was “just be a cat” which seems to be the least difficult costume to put together if you think about it……I’m giving it some consideration believe me.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share a couple of pix from the past……the first ones are my Cousins Mollye and Toby the shih tzus who live with my Auntie Carol.  She made costumes for them for a Halloween parade they had in her community in The Woods Resort in West Virginia.  What do you think?  Pretty darn good huh?

Then I have a couple more photos to share – first it’s our front porch as Mom decorated it last year for Halloween.  I have NO IDEA how she’s planning to do it this year but I’m sure I’ll be snapping photos THIS Halloween and of course I’ll be sharing those too.  You know me – I share EVERYTHING with you guys – even if it’s boring, I’m sharing.  😀 😀 😀

There’s my pumpkin right in front….!

Then this is a close-up of my Sammy-Pumpkin!!

My cat pumpkin had a “friend” with him last year….a funny black cat decoration!

Now before I go, I’d like to remind you what tomorrow is – NO IT’S NOT JUST COLUMBUS DAY HERE IN THE USA, IT’S ALSO TUESDAY TEASER DAY!

So – see you here tomorrow for that little challenge…..and you thought the only big problem you had to solve was what to wear for Halloween – HA!  You forgot the TEASER!

Happy Monday Peeps…………with Pre-Halloween Hugs, Sammy 😀 😀
