So.. my dad's getting remarried to a w*onderful  lady this halloween, and I'd like to make them something.. It doesn't have to be useful, they've got everything they really need.

They both have pretty good senses of humor, and ideally I'd like to make them something that they could laugh about..and something that played on the halloween theme at least a little

Any ideas?

The earth, stained with the blood of a thousand dying soldiers, weeps as she welcomes them home.

A weird gothic/halloween style bride & groom ornament for their christmas tree.

I know last year Kmart had these really cute animated skeletons that were dressed as bride and groom and they sang "I got you babe" when you pressed a button.

There is a great song called "Zombie Crush" by Groovie Ghoulies some of the lyrics are

"If you don't want to hear me saying "I love you," here's what you're gonna have to do:
You'll have to sew my lips up real, real tight, 'cause I become a zombie around you.
If you don't want me staring at you night and day here's what you're gonna have to do:
You'll have to sew my lips shut real, real tight, 'cause I become a zombie around you.
Get out your needle and thread; I might as well be dead.
My heart stops beating, too.
My brain, it turns to mush, I've got a zombie crush.
Go on and shoot me, I beg you."

I don't know burn it to a disk along with some other favorite songs (if you need Halloween related let me know I can list off quite a few.) Then personalize the cover somehow. Or embroider some of the lyrics on a pillow or put it on a big throw for them.

I guess I don't know exactly what they like so it is hard. I was married on Halloween, so it is a bit of an obsession for my hubby and I. But not knowing anything about them makes it a little more difficult. I'll try to keep thinking. Or if you can think of a general direction you want. Let us know.
