Detailed Yard Haunt

We were driving down into the Finger Lakes yesterday and saw this detailed yard haunt and had to stop and take some pictures. The entire house and yard was covered in decorations and it was all very stylized and cohesive looking. There were lots of LED flood lights in the ground and up in the trees, it must look fantastic at night!

Emergency Reserve Candy

We try to buy enough full sized candy bars based on the number of trick-or-treaters we had the previous year, but so far the count keeps going up each year since we moved into this house, so to be on the safe side we always have several bags of "emergency reserve candy" just in case we run out of full sized bars.

Indoor and Outdoor Decor

We always decorate the inside of the house for Halloween by mid to late September and we put out what we call "decoy" Halloween decorations to promote the Halloween decorating spirit for the month of October and to keep the neighbors guessing as to what they're going to see on Halloween night at our house.

Countdown to Halloween

Well today "officially" kicks off the "Countdown to Halloween" so please be sure to check out the 2018 Countdown to Halloween Blog and visit all this year's Cryptkeeper participants:

However, we're starting off this season on a bitter sweet note. Our beloved orange, black, and white Halloween Calico cat of over 14 years, Pumpkin, had to be euthanized late last week due to a Feline Aortic Thromboembolism. We've owned cats for the past 25 years and this was the first time we've ever encountered this condition and it is something we hope to never see again. We still have two 4-year old rescue cats that are siblings and life must go on, but there's always going to be a void in our hearts for our dear Pumpkin. 

We're going to do our best to post Halloween pictures on this blog over the next 4 weeks as we approach Halloween and get ready for the big night with our annual yard haunt.
