HALLOWEEN & ZOMBIES

Halloween is my favorite of all the holidays! Seriously, I wish we would dress up all year. I love it. Right now I am sporting hot pink hair "for Halloween" but will ultimately not wash out for 3 months. Ha! I am my inner child in October.


Zombies also have a special place in my heart. I love them too! I love them so much, that me and my 9-year-old son have been working on a Zombie picture book. It bites! --- literally.





Fun facts about Zombies:


  1. Zombies never tire
  2. They are attracted to movement
  3. They cannot talk
  4. Zombies can't see 3 feet in front of them, so they trip on everything

  6. You can dodge a Zombie 
  7. Zombies can break through glass, but not climb up or over a windowsill
  8. They have excellent hearing, so be quiet
  9. Zombies came from Haiti
  10. Once you are bitten, you will become a Zombie
  11. There have been over 200 Zombie movies made since 1961
