    They look like a small class from a school or possibly a day care center. Our house is down the street from a large elementary school and dozens of kids walk by every day. My wife's cousin is a kindergarden teachr at said school and brings her class by my house once a year to see the decorations. We've had kids stop in the morning or on the way home and ask us if we'll be doing the "scary house" again this year. It's heart warming! lol!

    You already know I love this prop! You have a unique style, very similar to PR.

    :)I couldn't resist and I put my FCG, Lily up last night. I still think I am the only one in my neighborhood with decorations out. I did get my ghost grid put together, and I will be hanging ghosts this weekend. The madness continues.....Muhahahahahahahaaaa....

    Hi Printersdevil! Thank you for the kind visitor message. I'm not sure how to reply so I thought I'd live you one as well. We're chugging along right with a good mix between mundane chores and Halloween chores. I'm looking forward to sending out my Secret Reaper gift. It's my first time participating and I want to spoil them! Glad to hear you're having a great time with your giftee. Witch sisters!

    Not sure if this is the right place for this, but, I have a groundbreaker I bought from Spirit a couple years ago. I used it for the first time last year and it was completely lost in the mix. You can't see it at all. Any ideas on how to dress it up or make it stand out a little more? Should I just put a tiny spot on it? I bought it on clearance so I'm totally cool customizing it.

    I noticed that several homes started to put stuff out on the equinox. I'm hoping that a few more will put out decorations on the 1st :)

    I feel so far behind. I was hoping to have my spider webs up already. We can't find the number to our lawn lady. The county is getting upset about "excessive" overgrowth and we might have to hire someone to do a one time job. One of our neighbors is storing (with permission) their non-working car in our driveway. They keep promising to get it towed and it's still there. I'm worried I might need to incorporate this car into my display assuming the bushes don't eat it first. I'm still working on...

    jdubbya replied to a thread it's here! in General Halloween
    Seems a lot of Halloween related things are going on. A LOT of commercial haunts had opening nights this past weekend. Starting to see home Halloween decorations popping up. Ironically the retail side is already winding down with Halloween being marked down or condensed to make room for Christmas stuff at some stores. These next 5 weeks will pass quickly but it's the best time of the year!

    It might be an unpopular opinion but I see nothing wrong with GMOs. We have corn because of genetic engineering! I give out both candy and non food treats to every kid.

    I did notice that Target had a small section of "healthy" treats that were all labeled GMO free. I personally care more about the sugar content of foods for my own diet but I also think that it's ok to indulge every once in awhile.

    Wait, it attaches to a vacuum? That's super cool. I thought if I ever went the webcasting gun route I'd have to hook it up to an air compressor.

    Dollar tree and thrift stores would be a good starting ground. Also check out pinterest for some easy decorations. Wish you the best!

    The resin tombstones are pretty heavy compared to the Styrofoam tombstones. They have pretty thick bases and probably weigh about 15 lbs. I think unless we were to get super heavy winds they would be fine.

    You'll get varying opinions and ultimately you settle on a look you find appealing. Here's mine. We use amber and blue almost exclusively. Rather than shine a light on a particular stone, we position them so they hit a few stones and give a wash of color. We've adopted a "less is more" outlook with regards to cemetery lighting, paring back from 4-5 floodlights to 2 or 3 led spots. We like shadows and dark areas forcing people to look closer and use their imagination, rather than having...

    annamarykahn and Madame Leota got it right. If your kids want Halloween decorations then put them in charge! If they are older then give them more independence. Maybe throw 40 bucks at them and tell them get creative. If they are younger maybe just do some playful items that you know they love. You don't have to decorate. Forcing yourself to decorate when you really don't want to will most likely result in you feeling more burned out.
