Costume Party!

My love for witches and dogs appears to be getting out! These trick or treaters are knocking at the door of the Lair. So what do you think? Who gets a treat and who gets a trick?

4)H witch costume dog 5

5)H witch costume dog 66)H witch costume dog 87)H witch costume dog 7Who gets the trick and who gets the treats?

I’ll be handing out candy (and obviously doggie treats) this year, probably won’t dress up. What about you all? What are your Halloween plans?

P.S. I guest blogging over at Embrace the Shadows today! Another chance to win a book!

    I say they all get treats, that last one especially. Their humans dressed them up in those costumes, the poor dogs. They all deserve treats for putting up with that :)

    I just finished SOUL MAGIC. It. Was. AWESOME!! And the witch in the book with the same name as a certain witch who visits here? I have to say that I like the real witch MUCH better than the character. And I loved the part with Phoenix and the Ipod. (The rest of you will know it when you read it.) I laughed my a@@ off :D Keep up the great work, Jen :)

    Aww, they’d all get treats from me. #4 is my favorite, though. If I could have a dog, I’d want that one.

    I raided the candy section at the store yesterday. If no kids show up this year, I’ll be eating chocolate until it’s Christmas candy shopping and cookie baking time. Yay.

    I stopped at the store for my copy of Soul Magic and they didn’t have any! I was so disappointed I will have to try the other store, but can’t get there till tomorrow. Thanks Dawn now I am more imaptient then ever to read it.

    I agree all the dogs deserve treats, especially #7, the poor guy looks terrified or is it horrified.

    As for Halloween plans, we are finishing moving on Halloween. I need to get some candy in case any trick or treaters show up, if we don’t get any my kids will eat the candy so I don’t have to.

    I like #5 but I’m a sucker for spots so #1 is a cutie too.

    Our neighborhood is the best for trick or treating so we have lots of friends with their kids coming over to head out. Usually we only make it around the block before the boys’ bags are overflowing. Then everyone is headed back to our house for a get together.

    I plan to do lots of reading. When I went to get Soul Magic at the store I saw that the next book in Nora Robert’s Bride Quartet was out and I picked that up. So those two jumped to the top of my read pile. Now hopefully with the extra hour we are getting this weekend I will find plenty of time to read.

    Okay… I will take all of them especially number 7. Poor thing, Looks like he his scare. I will be sprinkling some magic dust on those humans!! They all get treats, but 7 he gets whatever he wants!

    Thanks Dawn… now I really can NOT wait to get my copy!!!! My mailperson already thinks I am crazy for stalking them by my mailbox… Actually I am at work while they pass, thank gosh, they probably curse me out for the packages going in and out!

    Oh plans… Really… Come’on!! Tomorrow is my Birthday!!! I am taking the day off of work and heading to the mall and Borders!!!! My book better be in the mail today… or I will be buying another copy! Then I have no clue what I am doing that evening… Now, Saturday is another whole story! I will be giving candy out at my house. I will dress up in one of my less revealing costumes (don’t need any daddys to get the wrong idea – no I am not the treat)… and then when that is over…. I go change into MY costume and it is party time!!!! Then Sunday… it is recuperate time!!!

    Now, has anyone seen Kira since we gave her her own Wing Slayer yesterday… lol!!!
    I hope everyone has a great day!!!

    Oh… Halfing Witch passed her driving test yesterday. So, now I have a legal driving Halfing Witch with her very own Broom! OMG!!!

    Hey Dawn! I want to “rescue” poor number 7!

    Thank you so much on the book! Phoenix is a little bit frustrated with that iPod. Just saying…

    Yeah, I had that witch named BEFORE I met the other witch. I always met to tell her that. I SWEAR!

    Even though I’m dead tired, I’m wearing a great big smile knowing you liked the book!

    B.E, number 4 is a cutie! And seriously, can you believe what dogs put with from their humans?

    I have SIX bags of candy! So I’m with you, if no kids show up, I’ll be well stocked in chocolate! (Although I haven’t checked lately-Wizard better NOT have gotten into the candy!)

    Val, I’m so sorry! I’m hearing that the book isn’t in every store yet. I hope you can find it without too much trouble.

    I know, number 7 looks humiliated. He/she deserves extra treats!

    I wish I had a spell to make your move over and done with!

    They all deserve treats! And I hope they go home and play tricks on their owners for making them dress up like that! Ya’ll need to stop by Penumbra tomorrow. I’m hosting a Pets Gone Wild Halloween Party! (With a special gift for Cecile. Shhhh. Don’t tell her. It’s a surprise.)

    Jen…I’m hating you about now. Three hours of sleep. I KNEW I should never have opened SOUL MAGIC. Tell Sutton he is a bad, bad boy and in serious need of discipline. I’ll be happy to take care of that for you. And he is So. Damn. Worthy!

    Kira, when you check in, if you still can’t find a copy, I have an extra coming in the mail. I’ll happily ship it up the turnpike to you. Let me know.

    Cecile, congrats to the Hafling Witch! My withcling has decided to be the social butterfly. Her professors are doing a party at history department tomorrow and then she and Baseball Boy are off with friends for the evening. We get her for lunch on Saturday with the family. Lawyer Guy may go up to his alma mater for the football game Saturday night. If so, I’ll be manning the trick or treaters with the Monster Dogs and the Lolcat alone because the kids are headed to a party. I’ll wear my black cat sweater and…I need to find my jack-o-lantern….hrm. Now where did I put that pesky thing….

    Amanda, I love number 5! He just has this look like, “Yeah, dude, even dressed up like this, I’m still cool!” Number 1 looks like, “Seriously? Again?”

    I heard Nora’s Bride Quartet is really good! You’ll let us know, right? And really, is there ever enough time to read? I’m getting frustrated trying to find time and quiet to read lately.

    Sounds like you’re all set for a great Halloween in your neighborhood!

    Cecile, we’ll take care of number 7 and restore his pride!

    I hope you have a great birthday tomorrow! You deserve it! After all you do for your family, they’d better step up and treat you right :-)

    LOL on your less revealing costume! Darn right you’re a treat!We witches have to dial it back a little around mortals, right? They can’t handle it!

    Hmm, excellent point about Kira!

    And, finally, OMG! Your daughter is driving! You’ll never sleep again! Aren’t you mega-proud of her for passing and getting her license????

    Silver, please, please remind me to go to Penumbra tomorrow! I usually get by at some point, but right now, I’m guest blogging and on my last brain cell.

    Is it wrong to love that you hate me? LOL! And Dawn reminded me about the name! I meant to warn you! The witch in the book had that name before I really knew you! In fact that name was only supposed to be a placeholder, but it just stuck.

    There’s just going to be no living with Sutton if you guys keep telling him how worthy he is.

    Now wait, why are you left alone on Halloween night? Of course daughter and bf are going out to parties, but how did lawyer guy get a pass??? I like Wizard here to help! See how lucky lawyer guy is??

    *Comes out of lair with a satsified smile* Looks back, “no honey, you just stay in there I WILL be back later.” *beg* You girls missed out!! And no I will not share. :P lol

    Thanks Silver, but I’m going to be up by Barnes & Noble in about an hour so I am stopping to get it. I know they’ll have it.

    Those poor poopy dogs! Most look like they’ve been tortured into those costumes. I say they all get treats. Especially the last one. His eyes are so sad!!

    My plans for halloween watching my kids head out the door to hunt up some candy and handing out candy to our neighborhood kids. Nothing exciting. I MIGHT dress up, I don’t know yet. I think my ren-faire wench costume needs some dusting off. :D

    Ohhhh… something for me at Silver’s place!!!!! **feeling like a kid at Christmas**
    But, shhhssss it’s a surprise!

    Thanks for taking care of number 7, poor guy! I am still going to put a spell over his owners!

    I hope they do, but I never expect anything from them. Except dirty dishes, dirty clothes, receipts from when they use the debit card and a lot of moans and complains when I ask them to do something! LMAO!!

    Us witches are Treats!!! =) But to the mortal world with their kiddies in tow… they do not need to see my treats, lmao!!

    I am very proud of her for passing and being able to drive on her own. The first step into the independent world. I am just not ready to let her go fully yet… Still want to hold on to a piece of my baby witch! And boys… don’t even get me started… lol!!

    See…. we haven’t seen Kira in a while huh… Give her her own Slayer and she takes off with him… At least I am just in the room with the men… you know where to find me… Speaking of room… and sneaking… hummm… I feel the need to stir up some delicious men today…. ***putting on sneaky shoes and tip toeing to the room of my delicious men… shhhhssss Axel, I am here honey and its my birthday tomorrow…. evil grin***

    I really want to see this wench costume!

    Cecile, SNORT! No they don’t need to see your treats, although I bet they’d like too!

    Your baby witch gives you a lot to be proud of! As a mother of three boys, I telling you to watch out for those boys :-)

    Your family had better step up and treat you like a queen on your birthday! Or the wing slayer hunters will!

    Jen, I read the dedications page and boy did it make me grin. :D

    Psst…oh, sexy-man, mix up some appletinis for the girls. I think we should celebrate a bit. And I’m warning you girls, he has a complex about his belly button now– so be nice! :P

    Awww, they’re all so cute!! But number 7 is definitely in need of a treat. He looks like his last shred of dignity has been stolen from him. And he’s put up with it like a good dog, the poor sweet thing. Go on, give him a treat! Oh what the heck, give them all a treat! :-)

    P.S. All I did was read the first line of SOUL MAGIC and I’m hooked! Now I can’t stop! Waa-aaah-aaah!!! What have you done to me? I need to work, you little witch, you!!

    Let me know what you think of COVET. I’m going to read it in a couple weeks, I think.

    And wow, so impressed your sharing–won’t mention sexy man’s belly button :-)

    Jen, yeah, #7 looks like “what did I do to deserve this?” Poor little guy :( And now I have that song going through my head.

    And speaking of songs, Jen, did you check out “The Curse” yet? Doesn’t the chorus just say “Wing Slayers” :)

    Silver, you’re right about your “namesake” being a B witch, only you need to capitalize the B. You’re way better than her, all witch, no b :)

    Ohhh, Nora Roberts, yeah, I started BED OF ROSES after I finished SOUL MAGIC. I love it so far. But then, I usually love Nora’s books.

    Jen, tell your publishers to hurry up and set a release date for the next WS book. Inquiring witches NEED to know here :D

    Lol, number 4 looks like such a suck up.

    “Look at meee! I have a hat! TREAT NOW.”

    …Sounds familiar to me (as I glance at my dog).

    Adorable pooches, one and all. :) As for what I’m doing on Halloween….

    I’m going to a football game at the local University (of which I’m an alum, just in case anyone was curious). Plan on watching the World Series after that (Go Phillies!). Not quite sure what I’ll be doing in between…guess I’ll figure it out. Maybe dress up like a witch and scare some children :P
