With Halloween right around the corner I thought I would share a few of our favorite Halloween movies, and a game.

ACROBATS is a fun game that we played when my children were small.  It has 3 plastic pieces that form an arch.  A magnetic bat hangs from the arch, ready to have many more hooked on.  The colour you hang is based on the roll of the die.  This game can be short or long.  And losing is not bad.
This is a game that I pick up if I find it at a thrift store or yard sale. 
Here Logan and Grandpa enjoy one of Logan's fun games at Grandma and Grandpa's house.

Our movies are ones more on the suspenseful side, so many of them are black & white (grey).  Some of our favorite B&W ones (starring Bette Davis (scary) are "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane" and "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte".   Some earlier B&W include "Gaslight", "The Second Woman", "Asrnic and Old Lace", "Sorry, Wrong Number", "Picture of Dorian Gray",  and "Laura".  Some smart ones we like (Hitchcock or Hitchcock style) are "Wait Until Dark", "Dial M For Murder", "Charade", "North By Northwest", "The Spiral Staircase", "Spellbound", ......  A couple other favorites are "The Bad Seed" and the newer "Lady In White".
These are just a few.  Hallowwen is a great time to turn off the lights and enjoy some classics.

Logan had so much fun playing acrobats with dad. I really should have borrowed some of those movies to watch this month!
