fall

Halloween is right around the corner and the spooky spirit is all over campus. From the painted pumpkins to the falling leaves, it feels just like Halloween around campus. Some of my favorite Halloween activities involve carving pumpkins and baking pumpkin seeds. Ever since I can remember, my family and I have all gone to a pumpkin patch, or just up the supermarket last minute, and picked out pumpkins to carve.

This year I decided not to carve a pumpkin, but to paint one will melted crayons instead! This worked out nicely because I picked up a white pumpkin and had a spare pack of crayons laying around. This was just as messy as carving out a pumpkin and just as time consuming! It did not take as long once the crayons started melting, but once they did it was off to the races.

Another reason I liked decorating my pumpkin in this way is because it elongates the time I can display the pumpkin because I did not carve it so it does not rot as easily.

I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!

Okay, so it’s not Halloween quite yet…I know!  But if you’re not a celebrator of the holiday itself, it’s not a huge deal.  I prefer to think of it as part of the whole fall experience — a specific day to go all out and celebrate fall.  I am not a fan of haunted houses, witches, skeletons, ghosts, or any of the other holiday-specific traditions.  It’s not because I am scared of them, but as a Christian I just can’t say they are in line with my beliefs.  This is just my personal opinion…I think it’s totally fine if you have fun participating in these activities, especially if it’s an opportunity to be outside and enjoy the weather!

With that said, my previous Halloweens have included hayrides, bonfires, and…trick-or-treating with my horses!  Where I live is not conducive (or even possible) for trick-or-treating, unless you want to walk two miles and only visit three or four houses.  My church always had a really nice event when I was growing up called Trunk or Treat, where people would decorate the trunks of their cars with a theme and hand out candy, so I still had the classic experience of dressing up and having some Halloween fun.

Now that I’m older and have horses, though, I’ve changed up the game a little bit.  Last Halloween was the inaugural kick-off of “Equine Trick-or-Treating”, and the plan is to have an exciting second year to continue the tradition.  It’s the exact same concept as human trick-or-treating, except I don’t really dress up my horses (I could, though…hmm).  They have to perform a trick before they get their treat!  Blondie can smile, and Pearl will smile, kneel, bow, do the Spanish walk, count, and climb up on a rock or steps.  I think I’m going to make them Rice Krispie treats this year, but they’d be happy with anything — carrots, apples, marshmallows, safe fruits and vegetables, or special horse cookies and treats.  Yes, they’re a bit spoiled…but they deserve it. 🙂

Stay safe and enjoy the day, whatever your plans include.  (yes, it’s a regularly scheduled day at Fontbonne, but rumor has it there are multiple bowls of candy around campus…..just saying……)  Happy Halloween!

Fall Festivities

by Candance on October 25, 2016

Wow! Time is flying by! October is pretty much over and soon it will be Thanksgiving & Christmas!!!!! Since I don’t celebrate Halloween, I am excited about my church’s fall festival we’re having on this coming Saturday. There’s going to be food, games and fun, fun, fun!!!

Along with having the fall festival, it’s such a blessing that our church is collecting food for Thanksgiving and will be distributing the meals to needy families next month. That brings great joy to my ears and heart!

What are some things you have planned as it draws near to the holiday seasons?

So…I love Halloween. I can’t really recall a year that I didn’t have a fantastic time celebrating the holiday – my default costume, when I was a kid, was a simple black cat, while my parents always went as Greasers (slicked back hair for my dad, huge hairspray curls for my mom, and packs of cards under their rolled sleeves to look like cigarettes). We would go to the zoo in Knoxville, Tennessee, to trick-or-treat, then watch a spooky movie like Hocus Pocus when we arrived home.

Things have changed in recent years – in my junior year of college, I tackled sugar skull face paint. I woke up at 6 am to create the look, especially motivated by the fact that I would receive extra credit if I showed up to class in costume. Last year I dressed up as Suicide Squad Harley Quinn – BEFORE the hype – and went to a costume contest with some of my friends to check out the town’s creative outfits. This year? I have no idea where the wind will take me, but I do know exactly what I’m going to be. I practiced the makeup last night – check it out!

This makeup is great because it’s like, am I Hades? Am I Corpse Bride? Am I just a dead Disney fan? (Answer – A. Disney Hades is basically my spirit animal, and I’ll look a whole lot more like him when I break out the gray skull-embellished toga, blue hairspray, and Grecian braids).

I hope you guys have a great Halloween! Happy Haunting!

Keep moving forward.

Falling Back!

by Yuri September 26, 2016

Look outside a window. Are the leaves changing color, perhaps falling; is the weather getting cooler; is time moving back by an hour? It is that time of year again: Autumn! The time when we transition from shorts to pants, T-shirts become jackets, and flip flops morph into sneakers or even boots. A lot of people love […]

It’s Fall, Y’all…

by Jess September 26, 2016

So I’m not going to lie… …I love pumpkin spice as much as the Cheshire Inn Starbucks apparently does, via this sign. I’m definitely one of those people that gets very excited when she sees the first Pumpkin Spice item of the season on the shelf at the grocery store. I can personally attest that […]
