Halloween Camp 2010

Last weekend, I went to Wonderland Camp. I saw old friends: Kortney, Kelsey, Ashley, Morgan, Sophie, Sam, Jake, Toby, Andrew, Marcella, and Lou. I also made new friends: Lauren and Bethany. Each time that I go back, I realize how much I miss the little things from Wonderland like the noisy dinning hall, the old jukebox that has been there since I could remember, the homey cabins, smiling faces everywhere, and the bumpy rocks underneath my wheels. On Friday evening, we had movie night in the dinning hall. We watched ‘Monsters Vs. Aliens‘. It’s a cute movie. Kortney and I shared our two bags of chips while watching it.

Saturday morning, we had open activities and I did crafts. I made a paper bat to hang on my chair and I made a friendship necklace for my friend Lou. Then in the afternoon, we went on a hay ride and sang songs. The hay ride was quite calming. Kortney and I were laughing at the paper ghosts in the trees. After the hay ride, we had snack and ate Apple Nachos (apples with caramel, nuts, and chocolate chips).  We then had rest time and I took a nap for once. It was nice.  After dinner, we dressed up and trick-or-treated around camp. I was an evil queen with a black cape and silver crown. The dance started afterwards. With the music pumping as always, everyone was dancing and all I could see were masks and costumes. They also had the Mizzou football game on mute on the big-screen TV and people would suddenly cheer when the team made a touchdown. I’m not a sports fan but I still thought that it was cool. I danced with Jake and his parents, Kelsey, Morgan, Kortney, Ashley, Sophie, and Toby. It was a fun night. 

On Sunday, we ate breakfast and just played bingo until our rides got there. This weekend was a blast! It was good to see some old friends. Now the countdown until summer starts, down to when I go back to Wonderland. I might go two or three times this summer. I can’t wait!

Beautiful by Bethany Dillon

I adore this song. It has very lovely and meaningful lyrics. It's so spiritual. It made me tear up the first time I watched the video.

Halloween Girl by Ghosts on the Radio

In the spirit of Halloween, I posted this video. I love the video and the song. The lyrics are eerie and haunting.  The video also plays out like a horror movie which I love.

Quicksand by Britney Spears

I love this unreleased Britney Spears song. Lady GaGa wrote it for her but she never used it. She should've put it on her CD.

the Time of the Witch

With howling winds and smiling jack-o’-lanterns,
with zombies, ghosts, ghouls, and the full moon,
the time of the witch is here.

Lock all of your doors,
everyone be prepared.
You better sleep with fear,
for the time of the witch is here.

They’ll fly on their brooms,
dance and cackle around the fire,
steal all the sweet children that they hunger for,
causing the night to be full of horror.

It’s about to strike midnight,
are you ready yet?
You’re in for a treat,
you’re in for a fright.
Run if you can my dear,
for the time of the witch is here!
