October 24th - Some decorations finally up!
Well, I finally got some decorations up in my yard the other night. I plan to try and build it out bit by bit and get more things set up between now and Halloween.
Anyone that knows my living situation knows that I live in what I've called "the worst Halloween house ever". I live at the end of a court, up a steep hill and then up 19 steps (to the front door). The front yard is like Jurassic Park and totally overgrown with plants and shrubs and although it makes for a very nice and quiet home it is nearly impossible to decorate in a way that anyone will see. The house can barely be seen from the street and since most of my neighbors don't decorate for Halloween we get very few trick-or-treaters. I'm lucky to get 3 or 4.
The decoration of my house is for my kids and myself to enjoy. After I put these few things out the kids were super excited.
My kids are what drive me to get things out. This weekend I'll pull more things out and get more set up in the front in hopes it brings some visitors.
I'm sure my neighbors think I'm weird since I set up all sorts of things, fog machines cranking out fog, strobelights flickering, Pumpkinland HauntScapes blaring and there's no one to enjoy, no one to listen to or see what I'm doing.
My kids appreciate it. That's enough for now.
