    It went Ok. Beautiful night - probably the warmest we've had. Everything was set up and in place a couple hours before the kids came. That's a first. And everything worked all night long, including the reaper (which I've had problems with the last two years) and the new Beetlejuice I made. Just bummed that we were down ToT-wise. We figured with it being Friday and warm, and with a lot of the kids having the day off school, our numbers would jump by 20, but it dropped by 20 instead. It sounds like a lot of 'em went to the mall during the day and were pretty much bored of the whole thing by the time it got dark. My wife also has a theory that we may do better when it's a little colder and more parents are driving kids TOTing. Then they can afford to be a little more choosy and just go to the houses that were really decorated. Some nice kids though, with some cool costumes. And there were some families that spent 15 minutes in our yard taking photos with their favourite tombstones and such, so that feels good.

    How about you? Did the good showing on the 1st night carry forward to the rest of the haunt?

    It went really well, I think - we got the props set up the weekend before and then added the sound/music and the animation in the window that week. The people that came by seemed to like it. Had a bat or two do a divebomb in some rain we had on Wednesday and then the next day, but we put them back up and reinforced them. The chalk, surprisingly enough, was hardly affected by the rain at all. It was a bit more washed out looking in the day, but by night in the lights it still lit up just fine - I didn't even have to redo it. Some kids (and some adults!) did their own drawings with the extra chalk we put out, which was nice - I was hoping they would get into that a bit. A lot were in a hurry to get to the next stop though. It wound up raining again late Halloween night but we were lucky in that we were mostly through takedown by the time it got heavy and cold. And then it *did* help wash away the chalk, so at that point I didn't mind it! So, basically all good. We had a nice time and the neighbors liked it a lot, which is a good thing.

    How was yours? How did managing all your visitors go? Did everyone like the new props?

    That's terrific! 176, wow - you must be tired, but that's really great.

    Thanks for checking out the pictues. I was happy with how a lot of it turned out. The ghost girl I made was with the help of punkineater's instructions - you can find them in punkineater's "My Props 2013 - 2014" album. I made mine smaller to be slightly more like a child ghost (since the theme is chalk drawings.)

    Anyway, glad you are having such great success and hopefully also a lot of fun moments!

    Wow Bam! That sounds fantastic. Hopefully that'll drive even more people your way. Bet they're excited to come back and see everything up and running.

    Hey, stopping by to say, break a leg - preferably not your own! Everything you've built looks wonderful - I'm sure it will blow them away!
