Trick Or Treats Come Only Once A Year.

So, when we lived in an apartment, we never did anything for Halloween (except watch scary movies). Now that we live in a house, we go all out. The first year we started with a few tombstones and the giant spider. Every year we try to add a few more tombstones and some larger item. This year we added the bat. It is way bigger than an actual bat but still looks very realistic. It actually creeps me out quite a bit. When we got it home, we realized that it lights up and screeches as well. The neighbor kids are prone to daring each other to sneak up and touch something in the yard and then run away - I hope the bat "wakes up" on them and makes them crap their pants!

Anyways, I thought I would share some pictures.

Yep, this is my house.



The zombie infestation in this neighborhood is a real problem.


My sister convinced the two little 5yr old girls down the street that this spider comes to life at night. One of them turned to her sister and said, "I told you I saw it move!"


Both of the zombies light up at night.




Creepy bat.


The witch on our front door. She screams "Happy Halloween" and then evil-cackles. Last year The Nephew was terrified of her. He would call and say, "I am almost at your house. Can you make sure the witch is asleep?" This year he told us, "I'm not gonna be scared of the witch this year, cuz I'm five now."


Some shots at night. We leave it on for about 3 1/2 hours each night.




Yes, it is a pirate zombie. And yes, that is its beating heart you see there.


Other zombie.


Creepy bat again.


And this is inside the house, on the mantle (under the TV, over the fireplace, where we keep the tiki glasses).


These are the zombies.


These are the B-movie actors they are trying to eat. That is actually what the figures were labeled as - "B Movie Actors". (I got them at the same place I got my cousin his Monty Python pig & cow catapult).


My sister also takes down our usual art work/photos in the living room and replaces them with creepy old fashioned gothic pictures.


Yeah, we really enjoy Halloween around here. I don't know what scary movies we will select for this year, but we tend to turn on something we have seen a thousand times while we pass out candy. I feel like watching some H2O this year maybe.
