#FunFriday A Very New York Christmas 2016

We did our annual trip to New York City last week and as promised, I’m sharing some photos with you today from our outing. We had a lovely time and the windows and decorations at all the locations were wonderful.

#Throwback Thursday #Halloween

I love Halloween and it’s not just the paranormal romance author in me that loves it. It’s the kid who couldn’t wait to dig through the family closets to try and put together an outfit to go out and get some tricks or treats. I loved the fantasy of it, of pretending to be something that I wasn’t.

I love decorating for Halloween and greeting the kids at the door, usually with something costumey on. One of my fondest memories is of answering the door with a wolf paw on one hand and a fake bloodied bandage on the other. An adorable little princess was on the other side and she looked at me wide-eyed and said, “I think you need to go to the doctor.” LOL!

Today’s Throwback Thursday is a shot of my house with the Halloween decorations. We had a lot of kids that year, including that little princess, I think. I’m hoping we’ll have more kids this year. Last year was kind of a disappointment.

Counting down to Halloween

For starters, please visit I Just Wanna Sit and Read for a review of THE LOST and another giveaway!

I’m like a kid when it comes to Halloween. I love the costumes and decorating the house! I love seeing the smiles and sometimes scary looks from the kids as they walk up the front steps.

I guess it’s natural since I love paranormal things, but it’s confession time: I am a major chicken. Have been since my mom and sis forced me to watch all those monster movies as a kid. It’s why I sleep with the sheets tucked up to cover my neck (vampires) and hate walking at night, especially during a full moon.

But despite all that, I LOVE Halloween. So I decorate the outside of the house so kids will hopefully have some fun on that day. Just beware the front door! This year we’ve found a cool mat that does all kinds of things when you step on it.

Wishing you all the best!

Every year my family and I go to Manhattan to see the sights of the Christmas season. I love walking around, seeing the windows and other holiday decorations. This little video I put together for you has some of the photos that we took on our annual jaunt.

I’ll be away for a few days getting ready for the Christmas holiday! I hope you all have a wonderful and Merry Christmas and will be back on Monday.
