This was the best weekend ever! Well, except for the part where one night my people left me home all by myself to eat and chase zombies. I didn't like that part. But I DID love hanging out on the couch all day Saturday while Mom did work for her school and Dad napped and watched football. Those days should be every day.
Anyway, my town really likes Halloween. There's all kinds of activities happening. I'm not sure why they like it so much, since Halloween is the worst holiday ever, but they do. Humans just can't be explained. Sunday night was my town's annual Thriller parade. For 11 years (that's more than me!) a local dance studio has taught people the dance to Michael Jackson's Thriller and they re-enact the music video downtown as zombies. It's tons of fun. So many people this year signed up, they actually had 3 stations for the parade and we were right by one!

Me and my people
I got cold, so Dad let me in his giant coat!
The mounted police dressed up like the Headless Horseman. I just wanted to say hi to the horsie!
Michael and the girl
Michael's got moves
Whew! That was close! Mom said she'll have to teach me to walk like a zombie next year and maybe I can be in the parade. No thanks Mom. I'll admire the zombies from a distance. And for any fur-ends that might be scared--they're not REAL zombies. Just humans dressed up as them.
My mom and dad both went to a school called Transylvania. You know with a name like that, they have to have lots of Halloween fun! Mom could tell stories, but this is MY blog, Mom. One of the newer traditions is "Pumpkin Mania" where students, teachers, and staff all carve pumpkins and they light them on the steps of the famous building on campus.
Here they all are
and me posing with them.
And that's why this was the best weekend ever!
