Sorry this is SOoooo late but Monday just sort of slipped by.  However since the theme was Halloween Horror stories – that is very short stories,  Six Words, No More, No Less  and we still have a day or two before the spookiest day of the year, I think you all will forgive me for missing Monday!

I’ve been having so much fun with the countdown to Halloween.  Now that we are 5 days away, I thought it would be a good idea to feature some of the BEST Halloween costumes.  These are all very original ideas or excellent executions of known characters.
