Friday the 14th! Dodged a bullet there with the 13th falling on a Thursday this month. Whew! Anybody out there superstitious? Getting into the Halloween spirit? Well it's time to celebrate the small things that made our lives interesting this week with our host Lexa Cain and wonderful co-hosts: : L.G. Keltner and Tonya Drecker.

1. Nobody came home from school this week complaining about scary clowns.
Did this phenomena hit your town? Hopefully it's old news by now, but if you didn't hear, there have been sightings of people dressed as clowns all over the US (and other countries). Allegedly, the clowns try to lure kids into the woods with candy or just attack folks with a meat cleaver. Or was it a nail file? Anyway, as you can imagine, real clowns are not happy about this fad at all.

2. I may succeed in turning my child into a wolf.
Furry vest with an awesomely long and fluffy tail? Check. Fluffy ears on a headband? Check. Fluffy gloves? One down and one to go. The snout is going to be the hard part, but with a rubber dog's nose and a set of vampire teeth from the dollar store, I'm going to give it my best shot. All this without a sewing machine! Pictures to be posted upon completion. I mean really, who wouldn't want to be a wolf?

3. I only lost one night of sleep after watching The Conjuring 2.
Why do I do this to myself? I just hope the nun-demon with the fanged mouth isn't a popular costume this year. Maybe I'll have my husband do the candy-at-the-door thing just in case. (The image above is from a life-sized model you can purchase for $2,000. Now that's scary!)
How was your week? Anything chilling to report?
