Spooky Circa the 1980's

SPOOOOKY!! The Watcher In The Woods!! When I was a kid this movie CREEPED my out! It creeped me out so much that I rented it numerous times. I think at one point my Mom finally had to tell me I couldn't rent it anymore, not sure if that is true, but in my memory it is... Mom do you remember?

This time of year when it is rainy and cold Matt and I have a lot of movie nights. It is especially fun during October cause we watch a lot of creepy, weird movies. Most of the time it is something from the Goosebumps arena, Matt loves anything book or movie that R.L. Stine does.

Tonight when I was at Target I found The Watcher In The Woods in the kids Halloween movies. I couldn't leave it there! It had to be part of our Halloween movie catalog. So tonight's movie selection.... you guessed it! The Watcher In The Woods.

Matt gives this movie 4 STARS!

"This movie is creepy! It's an awesome movie, you have to see it. The weird old lady scared me the most!" - Matt's movie review.

Even as an adult I still enjoyed this movie. I couldn't believe I still remembered it, but I guess if you watch it so many times that you've worn out the copy at the local family video store then you never forget!

Happy Spooking!

Halloween Spirit...... Cupcake Style!

Tonight was going to just be a mellow night.  The plan... to cuddle up on the coach with the kiddo and watch some t.v.  One of our favorite shows to watch together is Food Network Challenge, any of them that are Extreme cake challenges are the ones we enjoy the most. So we were all set to start our relaxing evening the show starts and 5 minutes in..... I am in the kitchen baking cupcakes.  For some reason I am not able to watch a baking show and not be baking at the same time.  I know it's a sickness!

So tonight, since it was to be a mellow night - I just stuck to Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream, with a little Halloween flare.

Gotta have Halloween Cupcake wrappers!  These are from Martha Stewarts Halloween Collection.  She always has great Halloween themed wrappers and ideas.

You can't make a vanilla cupcake in October without some orange food gel! I thought I may have used too much - but I wish I would have used MORE!

No Bones about it- I love these cupcakes!  Now off to watch Top Chef Just Desserts.   Hopefully it won't make me run into the kitchen and bake the night away!
