Create a Caption: Goosebumps
Thrills & Chills! With the weather getting chilly and daylight hours getting shorter, it’s almost that time of year again. . . Halloween! From all the talk in the hallways about what costumes to wear, to the snarling jack-o-lanterns guarding the neighbors’ front porches, Halloween preparations are well under way!
For those of you who are looking for more frightful fun than “trick-or-treat,” October is the perfect month to pick up your favorite scary stories, or sink your teeth into some new ones for an added chill factor! Leave it to Goosebumps to get you in the mood for the thrills and chills of the season.
Get your terrifying creative hats on and write a caption for the Goosebumps picture below of Slappy, the trouble-making ventriloquist dummy.

It has become kind of an annual tradition here to post a Create a Caption for the new Guinness World Records book. Two years ago, we had the photo of the guy who holds the record for wearing the most T-shirts at once. Last year it was the kid who holds the world record for balancing the most spoons on his face. They are pretty funny pictures, and your captions for them were hilarious! Well this year, it's dogs. . . skipping rope.
That's right. In the Guinness World Records 2012 book, you will find this picture of the most dogs skipping one rope at the same time.

If you know me even a little bit, you know I love cats! Seriously, I just can't get enough of them, especially kittens! Check out these two little guys. What do you think they're saying?

Ugh. . . the dreaded family portrait. The matching outfits, corny poses, fake smiles, and the ongoing phrase, "Are we done yet?" springs to mind.
Could it really be worse than school picture day? Quite possibly. . .
Though it is rare for me to enjoy taking a family photo, my dad and his sisters very much enjoy striking a pose in front of the camera to create an entertaining greeting card for their friends.
This past year was their best card yet. Being that my dad is dentist, he decided to pose as himself along with his youngest sister as the hygienist and his oldest sister as the patient.
Now it's your turn to get creative and fill in the blanks! Write your Captions in the Comments.

Graduation Day. Aaah. Memories in the making. As the school year winds down, maybe some of you guys are graduating from middle school, and moving onto high school? Or graduating from elementary school and moving onto middle school? Or in my case, giving myself a pat on the back for just having made it through another crazy year!
Well, as I was walking around my local party store shopping for a birthday card, all the graduation decorations got me thinking. It also gave me an excuse to dress up my favorite bear. What do you suppose he is thinking?
Here's my caption.
Bear: The diploma is nice, but I sure I hope I got some cold, hard cash in those cards!
Give it a shot, and let me know what you imagine he's thinking. Leave your Caption in the Comments below.

In most ways (I like to think), I am a perfectly normal adult, but oh my goodness, in the presence of kittens I just go crazy! Look at these guys! Are they not adorable???

Don’t you wish you could read animals’ thoughts? Like the movie Dr. Doolittle? I certainly do! One of my favorite activities is going to the dog park and watching all the dogs running and playing around, and observing how they get along. The dogs’ behavior towards each other surprises me and leaves me wanting to know, “What are they thinking?” and “Are they actually communicating with each other?”
The same goes for my uncle’s adorable dog. . . “What is she thinking while chewing on that toy?”
Since we can never know what is going through her doggy brain, I leave it up to you to fill in her thoughts!

Now that the football season has come to an end and Superbowl XLV has finished with a tremendous victory by the Wisconsin Bay Packers, you know what comes next. . .
The NBA Finals? Well yes, but that's not what I am thinking of. I'm talking about MLB (Major League Baseball) spring training. And what comes after that? Baseball season!
So to celebrate the upcoming season of Major League Baseball. . . I give you . . . my aunt posing in a glove!? Yes, you heard right. Just check out the photo below and add your own caption.

Recently, a couple of my friends went on vacation, and apparently encountered a magical portal to another world during their trip! At least, that’s what it looked like to me when they showed me this photo after their return:
As soon as I saw this pic, I envisioned a character pulling the door open to discover a whole new realm beyond. This road looks like it could be next to a castle, a row of country homes, farms, a deserted town, crazy upside-down houses, anything!
What do you think? What’s at the end of that road? What’s behind the hedge? Where do you imagine the doorway leads? Write your ideas in the Comments below!

As you may or may not know, the Scholastic headquarters are in New York City. A couple months ago, I went to one of my most favorite places in New York – an art museum. Here she is a sculpture of a giant rose. What do you guess this person is thinking?
Carly’s Create-a-Caption comment: “Hmm. . . I can’t tell if this statue smells like a rose or hand sweat?”
