It takes me a while to get my Halloween decorations out and up these days. As I've said many times, I have possibly the WORST Halloween house ever. Very long, steep driveway and then 19 steps up to the front door. Anything I put out has to be nearly onto the street for anyone to notice. Most of my neighbors don't decorate either so as a former Trick-or-Treater I understand why kids wouldn't want to walk up our court to see what the house at the end of the street looks like. I've had nearly everyone I know suggest things to bring more kids up our street, but none of the options sound good to me. I'm afraid of theft. I don't want to lose all the cool stuff I've accumulated over the years.
All of my favorite things stay inside and IF someone comes up to the front door (I think we've maxed out at 5 Trick-or-Treaters one year) then they get to see lots of cool decorations. I'm still working on things and once I have it done I'll take photos and post them.
The other night my son and I watched a show about extreme home haunts the other night. He was AMAZED at the work and how cool all the places looked. I think this could be a turning point year for him and home haunting. I've always hoped to get the family involved with creating a home haunt.
I just hope we don't have to move to get there...
