Hello little evil ones! Just thought I’d update you on the
crazy week we’ve had here at The Abbey. Bernard’s accident with the cauldron
last week has caused a huge uproar around here. It seems when he fell in the
cauldron it made the potion go bad, so he threw it out into the cemetery, which
made all the bodies dig their way out all at once. All of the skeletons are
dancing around making it impossible to get anything done around here. The grave
digger is working as fast as he can to get everyone back in the grave by Halloween,
I just hope he can get it done in time. If he doesn’t, Halloween night could be
just dreadful for all the little trick-or-treaters, and we wouldn’t want that…or
PS. here's a video Grimm took of all the craziness:
Hello everyone! The season is in full swing here at The Abbey, I hope everyone is being good little spooks and goblins. Well, OK, don't be too good! Here is a picture Grimm took of that freaky ol' Bernard, up to his usual high-jinks! He was doing some kind of crazy experiment on that frog and fell into the cauldron! I should go help get him out. Be sure and stop by Facebook to keep up on the day to day around here (and more pix), we've got all kinds of creepy things planned for this year! Tootles for now! Pandora
Halloween 2014 is in the grave and we had a BLAST! Thank you
to everyone who braved the cold and stopped by the Abbey, we have the BEST
neighbors EVER!!! We are going to catch our breath for a while and then go to
work planning next year. We hope to see everyone again in 2015!!! Until then, we
have posted pictures from last night on our Facebook page, just click here. Or you
can watch the video here. And be sure and LIKE our Facebook page to stay up to
date year round.
Early in October this year I got a
call from the Count, bringing the wonderful news that he would be attending
this year’s Halloween festivities at the Abbey. The news was wonderful because we
haven’t seen the Count in many decades. He has been busy, spending most of his
time in the southern United States. Apparently there has been some kind of
trouble down there involving vampires and fairies and such. But that seems to
be over now and he is looking forward to a relaxing Halloween with us and the
residents of Pumpkin Hallow.
is one slight problem with this happy little scenario however; he is bringing
two friends with him. I use the term friend generously because these two are
not very friendly at all. They are two demons that he picked up when he was
visiting down in Transylvania. When he got them they were just little imps. He
brought them to the Abbey that first Halloween after he got them, which was
also the last time he came to the Abbey. There was an awful trouble that night.
It seems they just didn’t understand that the purpose of the evening was to
give out candy to the little trick-or-treaters. They kept chasing the little
tikes and trying to steal their candy. Why it was just frightful. I do hope
they have learned to behave themselves over the years, but somehow I doubt it.
guess we will see how it goes Halloween night. I am going to try to keep them
locked up in the portico on the front of the Abbey, but it won’t surprise me if
they escape and start prowling around the cemetery. Just the same, I do hope
you will join us again this year, just keep a tight grip on your candy…
Just a note to let you know we are going to start leaving our updates and construction projects on the Facebook page instead of here on the website. We will use THIS webpage to tell you about the continuing story of Pumpkin Abbey as new characters are added and new and crazy things happen so keep checking here too! ~ The Pumpkin Abbey crew
We have been
doing so much work here at the Abbey to get ready for this year none of us have
had a spare minute to jump online and give you all an update. So tonight
I knew I simply had to take the time. We have done some changes to the front of
the Abbey and we are all just thrilled about it! Grimm took some pictures of
all the excitement for you (and a little sneak peak of what we have for you
this Halloween night! Just click HERE to take a look)! Of course we have been
battling those ghosts like you wouldn’t believe, which of course is making
things so much more difficult. They just won’t leave us alone. And when we confront them about it they make
up some crazy story. But we know they are lying, why we can see right through
them!!! And they are always moving things around, making noise, and knocking
things over. When we scold them they just claim it was a BOO BOO! Well, I should
go, tomorrow is the full moon which means its cauldron lighting night! And of
course that means it’s time to start on all those spells…I will send someone by
later this week to let you know how it’s going.
My sisters and I have come home to the Abbey to start
getting ready for this year’s Halloween festivities!!! This year promises to be
fantastic! Of course as usual it isn’t without its problems. Apparently while
we were gone the Abbey was haunted by a band of ghosts. Now mind you I’m not
prejudice, but those pesky things can be just down right annoying!!! Have you
ever tried to do anything with a bunch of practical joking ghost around? Why
it’s nearly impossible to get anything done, what with them running off with
potions or hiding broomsticks. Oh, Pandora don’t sweep that thing under the
rug, shoo it out the window, you know ghosts won’t stay where you put them. Oh,
well! I just wanted to let you know we are dragging out the cauldron and sweeping
the dust in getting ready for this year’s BIG EVENT! Either I or one of the
other undead creatures from the coven will drop by from time to time to keep
So long for now, and talk to you again soon or should I say
Thank you to all you wonderful spooks and goblins for another AWESOME Halloween!!! The Pumpkin Abbey Cemetery was full of all kinds of hungry little monsters begging for candy all night long...and we loved every minute of it (OK, maybe not Agnes)!!! We are going to take a short rest in our fresh dug graves and be back soon to start work on next year.We are staying at the Abbey this year so I will drop by from time to time to fill you in on our progress! Until then Grimm is posting pictures from the night, drop by his page and check it out!!! Until then...STAY SCARY!!! Elizabeth, Pandora, Agnes and everyone at Pumpkin Abbey!
So things have really started jumping around the old place.
Last weekend was the annual cauldron lighting. Spooks from all over gathered
here at the abbey to kick off the haunting season. I got to see so many old
friends and made many new ones too. Of course there were the usual complaints
as well; poor old West did nothing but bicker about that little girl that’s
always trying to steal her shoes and throw water on her. And of course no one
can forget Samantha’s Uncle Arthur with all his wise cracks and silly jokes. Grimm
took pictures, of course, so I’ll get him to post a couple. Well that cauldron
won’t attend to itself, so I better go. I’ll drop by later in the week with a
little more detail.
So good to finally talk to everyone again, it seems like
forever since we last chatted. My sisters and I arrived here at the abbey last
week and boy did we have our hands full. Last year when we left Agnes fired the
caretakers without telling us. Well, someone come in while we were gone and
cleaned the place up! Can you imagine? The grass was cut, the windows washed,
and all the cobwebs cleaned out! It was horrible!!! So, we've been busy making
the place nice and gloomy again, just the way we like it. We have put Frankie
in charge of grave digging and making sure things fall apart around the cemetery.
Alice and Bernard are pulling double duty around the Abbey helping stock the cupboards
with potions and stuff for the cauldron. Crow has been standing watch over the
pumpkins all season and this year’s crop is sure to be simply magnificent! Who does
that leave? Oh, yes; Cousin Grimm! He has been taking pictures of everything in
sight. I am going to be turning part of the blog over to him, so he can post
his pictures and update the biographies section, so keep your eyes open for
updates there! SO EXCITING!!! This year promises to be a fantastic year and
another great Halloween, thank you all so much for letting us be a part of your
What a fantastic time we had last night! Thank you to all the little trick-or-treaters and family and friends that dropped by! Sorry to those who were frightened too badly by Agnes' demon friend, I knew she was up to something. We are going to take a well needed vacation for now, but we will be back very soon to start plotting next years night of fright!!! Have a great year end and we will talk with you after the new year... Until then, Elizabeth PS For those who weren't able to visit last night, pictures and video will be online soon!
Well tomorrow is the big night for 2012, and everything is ready here at the Abbey! I think Agnes is cooking up something dreadful for the evening but other than that everything points to a really good evening. We are of course concerned for our ghoul friends out on the east coast, we hope everyone is OK and can put things back together soon! We expect to see anyone who can get here in person, any time after the sun goes down and until the candy is gone!!! Rest up my little minions the witching hour is close at hand!!!!
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
I just thought I’d drop in and let you all know I have a few surprises up my sleeve for our big night this year. And I've invited a special guest to help me with them since those goody goody sisters of mine won’t ever let me do anything evil. The last time I got to do anything about the little tick-or-treaters was when I turned those four little tikes into frogs a couple years back. Of course now the problem is they won’t leave. They hang around year after year expecting me to change them back! HA, FAT CHANCE!!! Anyway, just go ahead and try to get candy from me, YOU’LL BE SORRY!!!
It’s been such a long long time since I rapped with you, I
thought I’d cruise by and see what’s goin’ down! BOY! Have we had a time around
here lately, aside from dumb dumb Frankie bumping in to everything, those
stupid little pixies have been at it again! We knew they were up to something
since we hadn’t seen them in a while. Well they took over our best and biggest
pumpkin and made it into some kind of home for their queen. BOY! Do I have news
for them; Elizabeth is the only queen around this pad!!! Agnes is working on
something to get back at them for all their mischief, in fact I hear her
calling, I better split for now and see if I can help.
I hope you are all enjoying yourselves now that autumn is in
full force! We have been so very busy here at the Abbey getting ready for this
year’s visit. The candy is almost out of the cauldron and most of the pumpkins
are ready to go. The caretakers have been getting the cemetery ready for the
big night. OH! That reminds me, I never told you what those two rascals did
over the summer while we were gone, well they were digging fresh plots at the
back of the cemetery and they ran across some…let’s just say…left overs.
Bernard, our new butler, fancies himself as somewhat of a mad scientist/witch
doctor, and he came up with the idea to put the parts together and make a whole
person out of them. Well his spell worked… sort of. The creature he created is
dumb as a box of rocks. That thing lumbers around all over the place getting
into all kinds of trouble squishing pumpkins and knocking the cauldron over.
And I won’t tell you what Agnes thinks about the poor thing. Bernard named it
Frankie, Pandora just calls him dumb dumb. Well I should go for now, I’ll talk
to you more real soon!!!
Hi everyone, good to see you all again! Just wanted to let everyone know that Elizabeth has asked me to help out with the blog from time to time, I AM a journalist and photographer at heart (reaping is just my day job). For my first project I have started adding biographies to the webpage to let you know a little bit about each of us. I will keep working on it and add to it as I get more done, and of course I will be adding pictures too. Just click on the "PUMPKIN ABBEY BIOGRAPHIES" link at the top and it will take you to the new page. Hope you enjoy it and please make sure to drop us comments and let us know what you think. Talk to you real soon! Grimm Q: Why weren't there any treats left after last years trick or treating? A: Because everyone was a "goblin"
