Checking in!!!

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 would we???

PS. here's a video Grimm took of all the craziness:

Hello from Pandora my little wicked ones!

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!

I LIKE THE FRIGHT!!!

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.
                There 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.

                Well I 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…

Hello once again ghouls and boils...


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.

Until then stay spooky,

Elizabeth

Seasons Greetings for 2014!!!


GOOD DAY MORTAL WORLD!!!

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 you updated.

So long for now, and talk to you again soon or should I say TTYL,

Elizabeth

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!

The Cauldron has been lit!

Hello once again my scary little fiends!

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.

Have a Great weekend!

Elizabeth

First post of the 2013 Season!!!

Pumpkin Abbey Cemetery Halloween 2012
Hello one and all!

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 year!!!!!!!

I will drop by again soon, until then stay scary!

Elizabeth

Thank you one and all!

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!

The hour is near...

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!!!!

See you soon (if you are brave enough)!
Elizabeth

We're almost ready, are you???


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!!!

All my love (NOT),
Agnes

Hello you little devils out there!!!

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.

Toot-a-loo for now kittens!
