My favorite time of year!

It's true, I have gone AWOL.

I have a good reason though! Really, I do.

Halloween is my all time FAVORITE time of year. We do it up big. We put on a huge party, make all the neighbors think we have gone nuts, and warp our kids into thinking skeletons laying around the house are "normal" (is it really so wrong that your two year old runs around the house with a skeleton hand asking for high fives? Or that your 6 year old likes to lay in the graveyard out front and play dead? Nah, I didn't think so either.)

I thought I would share some of this years decorating progress since it has pretty much consumed me lately.

We'll start with the front yard during the day (and yes, that is my oldest playing dead):

Next, some night shots:

And now, the interior:

So what do you think? I still have a lot of work to do but I am super excited with how it is coming together this year.


  1. Hmmmmm, maybe you should be doing Psych nursing - lol

    Really cool decorations - you're really good.

    Be sure to post pics of the party :)

  2. officially green with envy

  3. Oh my God you rock I love it!! When we were younger my Mom made our house into the best haunted house parties every year. I wanted to do that with my kids but they are no fun!
