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,

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)!

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),

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!

Meet Frankie Stein

Good day one and all!!!

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!


Q: Why weren't there any treats left after last years trick or treating?
A: Because everyone was a "goblin"

Martha Stewart would be proud!

Hello everyone!!!

How are you all on this fine Labor Day?

We are doing really well here at the Abbey. Last week was the annual cauldron lighting, witches from all over road their broomsticks in to celebrate. After the cauldron was burning we put up the Halloween tree and started destroying the halls, we had a blast. I’m posting the pictures cousin Grimm took so you can see how the decorations are coming. Those little rodents keep sneaking around and ruining all the shots though, oh rats (pardon the pun).

Speaking of annoying, we haven’t seen much of those little pixies this year, which worries me. I know they are up to something. What could it be…?

Well, I should run for now, my sisters and I are off to a spell convention for a few days. I’ll let you know how that goes when we get back. Have a GREAT week everyone, and stay safe!

Are they making fun of us???

Bonjour to all you mortals out there (Faire la bise)!

I thought I would pop in and see what everyone is up to. We had a great time at home in the “other” world after last year’s night-o-fright! But it’s always good to get back to the Abbey and get our hands into the cauldron again! LOL!  Speaking of which, when Alice and I were scraping the debris out of the fireplace to make room for the cauldron three little rats came scurrying out. They were in black dresses and wearing pointy hats, I think they were imitating Elizabeth, Agnes and I, how rude!!! I grabbed Grimm’s camera and snapped a picture, what do you think, should we be insulted? 

Well, I’m gonna skedaddle for now, tonight is the annual cauldron lighting and a girls gotta look her worst ya know!

À bientôt, Pandora! <3

Hello out there all you bats and ghouls!!!

It’s been such a long time since we spoke, but we haven’t forgotten about you. My sisters and I have been cooking up all kinds of evil things for you this year! I don’t even know where to begin with all the things that have been happening around the Abbey while we were gone. The grave diggers were, of course, minding the Abbey while we were in “the Spirit realm”. When they were digging some new crypts in the back they found a lot of…shall we say…”spare parts” buried back there. You won’t believe what those rascals did with them. But you will have to wait for now, I’ll tell you more about that later LOL.

You know how much we LOVE our pumpkins here at PUMPKIN Abbey; well we are in the process of conjuring up a way for you to have one of your very own! Imagine that, a Pumpkin Abbey Jack-o-lantern of your own to scare all the spooks and goblins with on Halloween night! Wouldn’t that be AWESOME?!! I’ll give you all the info as soon as we work out the details

I don’t think we introduced Alice to you last year, she is our house keeper and we couldn’t manage without her. She keeps all the cobwebs and dust right where it should be. And we recently hired a butler to pitch in and give Alice a hand or two (or three) around the ol’ place. His name is Bernard. I’ll post a picture Grimm took of the two of them the other day while they were on their afternoon gruel break.

I can't believe it's been a whole year since I started this little blog; it's been SO much fun! I look forward to sharing all the gory details of this Halloween season as well!!! I'm going to run for now but I'll be back soon...

Until then,
