Hurricane Sandy arrived with a vengeance. I have family in both Virginia and Pennsylvania and therefore I was and am watching closely and praying heavily. Cousin L in Arlington lost power. I found this image that made me weep. These men NEVER give up their post come hell or high water. Yesterday was a little bit of both.
Cousin Sweet T in Pennsylvania also lost power and is currently still without it.
School has been closed and people have been advised to remain at home. Halloween has been cancelled. This is SO sad as Sweet T’s daughter, our Miss M., always has the BEST costumes. This year she was channeling her inner Edgar Allen and was going to be a raven.
But not to be deterred Sweet T (and grandma Nene) created a magical event with candlelight. I thought I would share since so many of you loved her “Royal Wedding Carriage”.
One year Miss M. was a witch and Sweet T saved her shoes. Love it!
Dry ice was placed in a larger bowl and a smaller bowl that was set atop contained a bit of brew. Spooktacular effect!
Love the “finger food”. The cheese biscuits had blanched almond “nails” made red with food coloring.
Check out the cranium cupcakes!
Chocolate cake was placed in silicone skull molds and pink buttercream frosting was piped on in an “s” fashion with a medium round tip.
Happy Halloween from Cousin It, Sweet T (for terror) Nacky Nene and Miss M. ~mysterious!
Prayers to all enduring this storm,
