13 Days of Halloween Day VI- 7 Questions

Thanks to Gentri Lee for this awesome edition of Seven Questions...
Puts ya in the Halloween spirit eh?

1. Do you believe in ghosts?
I do actually! In my parents old house, we believe there was a ghost of an old woman there. My brother saw her and one morning, she opened all the cabinets and cupboards and drawers in the kitchen...
Oh yeah, then there was that one time that I did that too just to freak everyone out.  

2. Do you prefer the cute or the scary Halloween?
I like somewhere in between. I dont like it too cutesy or too scary. Something that maybe shows how things would look if they were real... Think Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. Yeah baby.

3. How old were you when you stopped trick or treating?
Like 19... No regrets!

4. Do you have any fun Halloween traditions?
Oh so many! My favorite is our annual family halloween party. Everyone dresses up and we give prizes for best costume, we do a craft, watch movies, eat chili, chicken soup, breadsticks, homemade rootbeer, and carmel apples.

5. Share a scary local urban legend.
I dont know any here in Des Moines because we just moved here, but in Utah, I know the prison is haunted because my Dad worked there. He said strange things happened all the time.  I will have to ask him to retell the story on another post.

6. Would you rather be haunted or haunting?
Um... Haunting! Duh!
 I already have a habit of hiding in dark corners and popping out to scare Gavin.
Never. Gets. Old.

7. What's your favorite Halloween character/ creature? (dracula, witch, ghost, etc)
Right now, I'm diggin the zombies. But I was a witch for Halloween almost 4 straight years in a row... 
That might be a lie. I was also dracula for one year, a vampire another and all kinds of creatures in between. 
NO wait! PIRATES! Yup, they are my favorite, Hands down!

Isnt this an awesome decoration? My mom's house rocks.
