Happy Halloween to all of the ghostly regulars of the Turley Blog! Despite the theory that Halloween is just a cry for help from my rotting soul, I love this holiday and the house is covered with our annual display of skeletons, webs, and spooky items.

We are also planning our annual Pumpkin Smash at the Turley house for next Saturday, where the kids wake the Turley Troll at the top of the house and he throws down pumpkins until he runs out and throws down candy.

The kids are going as a Little Devil, Death, Wicked Jester, and Benjamin has made his own costume to go as his representation of Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of the dead. The scariest thing is trying to pronounce Mictlantecuhtli, but with the exception of running into an ancient Aztec, we are probably safe on pronunciation.

Have a great and safe Halloween!

  1. I hope all had a great All Hallowed Eve….now the work begins…..

    All Saints’ Day (in the Roman Catholic Church officially the Solemnity of All Saints and also called All Hallows or Hallowmas), often shortened to All Saints, is a solemnity celebrated on 1 November by parts of Western Christianity, and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in Eastern Christianity, in honour of all the saints, known and unknown.

    In the precursor…..

    All Souls’ Day commemorates the faithful departed. In Western Christianity, this day is observed principally in the Catholic Church, although some churches of the Anglican Communion and the Old Catholic Churches also celebrate it. The Eastern Orthodox churches observe several All Souls’ Days during the year. The Roman Catholic celebration is associated with the doctrine that the souls of the faithful who at death have not been cleansed from the temporal punishment due to venial sins and from attachment to mortal sins cannot immediately attain the beatific vision in heaven, and that they may be helped to do so by prayer and by the sacrifice of the Mass

  2. Pete, my katz would have to be sedated. Upon reflection, with enough nitrous to go around I too could be airbrushed as a skeleton…. 🙂

  3. Noah V,

    Is that a NASA bear? The witch looks ready to play a trick. Beautiful children.
