Scarecrow Time

We went to see the Scarecrow Walk at the Morris Arboretum this weekend.

It was a nice day.  We all can’t believe it’s only two weeks until Halloween!!

Brody was glad there was a Frankenstein represented.  It was a good day.

Hot Hot Hot Festival

We went with the Roomie to the Chestnut Hill Fall Festival.  It felt more like Summer Festival than Fall.  The temperatures were a sweltering 90+ which made the Roomie melt.

It was a lot of fun even with the heat.  We just need Fall to kick in with it’s wonderfully cool temperatures.

I might not have a cool name like Jack Skellington but I got my pumpkinishous on!  Elliott Pumpkinton is a fine name.  Maybe I will be come famous because of this blog.  I told this to the Roomie and she laughed…like a lot.  I’m too fabulous not to be famous…just saying.

September at the Arboretum

It’s almost Autumn.  We usually don’t start the festivities until October 1st but when you are a Scarecrow, Frankenstein and a ghost all year is Halloweentown time.

This place is like church for the Roomie.  The leaves are starting to change color, which of course we love!

Alice is always one who jump in a photo.  She’s just glad that she comes out in pictures.  Being invisible sometimes has its draw backs, lol.

Elliott and Brody are pleasant chaps.  We always have fun together.  They call us the Ghoul Squad.

We know so many have been dealing with Hurricanes and Tropical Storms so it forced us to get outside and appreciate our local nature.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday like ours!

Christmas Fun – Part 2 – A Christmas Carol

We went with the Roomie to see ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the historic Walnut Street Theater.

Mr. Nigel Murray loves the theater.  He said it reminded him of his days in London.

We all wondered if he wore clothing in London?  It’s not a question one just blurts out and he wasn’t being forth coming.

Pablo gave the show 12 nubs up!  He was loving the songs and chuckling along like the rest of us.  It was a wonderful day In Town.  We are all starting to feel the Christmas spirit!  God Bless us Everyone!

The music was amazing.  We listened to the soundtrack in the car on the way to the theater but there is something to be said for the live action of the musical.

I had so much fun and was still cheering on Elphaba at the end!  I totally love her!!!  Do you think she would marry me?

He Puts The Sh In Shamy

What do you think?  Should I go with the Batman face painting?  I totally could be Batman…you know if I had a billion dollars, a mansion, cave and a cool car.  Well I’d need a driver for the car since I don’t drive.  But then I’d have to have a sidekick and I don’t want on so I can’t be Batman.  Oh well…maybe I should be a pirate instead.

Go away Bird, Go Away Bird, Go away…

Aw dang.

IMG_8420 (400x300)

We like the Monkeys but alas we could find no Koala’s…Sad Face 😦

IMG_8464 (400x300)

Bjorn is all about the Alligators.

The Giraffes are so funny and fun all at the same time.  They have like the whole package.

Apparently Bjorn’s roommate seems to like sticking her face in things…I do not get it.

The Big Balloon wasn’t working yesterday.  I think it was because it was windy.  Maybe next time Shamy can get pictures of Town!

Thanksgiving 2012

We had a great Thanksgiving again this year.


I went to the local High School’s production of “Father of the Bride”.  Well done players!


While Spencer stole the Roomie’s new hat and became some kind of wanna-be Thanksgiving Fashion model.


It was a good day for all of us.  The second best part…a 4-day weekend!  Oh Yeah!  Gobble Gobble 🙂

Almost Like Home

I grew up in the forest like my Cousin Bjorn and my friend Alister.  They are trolls where I am troll adjacent.  This weekend the Roomies took me to a place that was as beautiful as my homeland.





They grown their frogs big in America…but I thought everything was only big in Texas?


What kind of bird laid these eggs?  I think one of them is trying to break through and eat me.  Later…

It was a great day in the forest and I can’t wait to go back and discover other things about the American Forests.
