Hello Shannon, tell us about a favorite trick you pulled.  

Shannon It would have to be from my time in the US Army. While stationed in Germany. We used to duct tape new soldiers into the cots and usually then took them outside and duct-taped them to a tree or in a tree.

Cat: Oh my! I’m glad I wasn’t there. Lol! What are your top 5-6 favorite things about Halloween and fall?


Movie: Hocus Pocus

Book: The Wizard of Oz

Food: popcorn balls

Drink: Hot Cocoa

Activity: The turning of the leaves, falling leaves and the cooler air (not cold-hate the cold yes, I am from Illinois) ha ha.

Cat: I love Halloween and making treats for the kids or themed dinners do you have a favorite craft or recipe?

Shannon: Well since my children are all grown up and I don’t get many treaters anymore. I don’t do a lot but my daughters do. So, I thought I would share my daughter Kayla’s crafts and decorations. Probably 80% of all her decorations are all handmade by her. She got the crafting genes.

Cat: What book have you come to talk about today?
