Default Halloween, 2010

Halloween is a big decorating holiday in our house. Jenn's boyfriend loves doing it and we've collected quite a few outdoor items over the past 6 years. Here's a couple pictures to show you how it came out. Quite a few things either light up, make noises, or both!

We've got a big front yard (bigger back, but no one would see stuff back there). Actually, Mike (daughter's boyfriend) wanted to set up a haunted trail in the back this year. We told him that wasn't happening. When he has his own house he can go to town as much as he likes.

AnnMarie, any amount of decorating is fun. Yours looks good!

It all looks cool. We used to decorate but since we've moved to this house there's no point (A. no one can see it from the street, B. we don't get any trick or treaters!). But since we got married on Halloween we ALWAYS celebrate!!

My sister got married on Halloween as well. They had a costume wedding. Terri was the bride of Frankenstien & Rusty was Frankensine. Father walked Terri down the isle drassed as a mad scienctest & was hold on of Mom's extra leg wrapped in a "bloody" towel.

I'd love to see other people's decorating! Hey, we never have trick or treaters and we're pretty much the only ones who see our decorations. That never seems to stop us!

Wow, that's great, Cilla. Unfortunately, we don't celebrate Halloween where I live, but my parent dressed me up once when I was little.

We don't get a lot of trick or treaters at my house either. We jokingly have an over/under going at 10 trick or treaters for the entire night. I think we had about a dozen last year because most of the people in the city spend their time in a couple of different neighborhoods.

My neighbors across the street used to do a haunted house, and I think that attracted a lot of people to my street. Both of the kids are around my age and don't have time for it any more.

We have a ghost and a spider that we've made, but I think only the ghost might come out of hiding for Halloween. We also have a pumpkin that needs to be carved. We had two, but the animals got to one of them.
