    It's happening, and it won't be long before we are in full-on Halloween! Hobby Lobby is putting out fall.

  3. Well it was bound to happen eventually - Halloween weater

    General Halloween
    Might be the first Halloween ruined by weather since I've been doing my yard haunt. The worst part is that it's beautiful weather until Halloween, 55 with a 50% chance of rain and gusty winds on Halloween, then back to beautiful weather the rest of the week. ONE day I ask for nice weather...

    General Halloween
    Every year I set a Halloween budget. Most years I somewhat stick to it, some years spending a bit more and others a bit less.

  8. Making Lemonade: Unorthodox 2016

    General Halloween
    So. Let's sum it all up. The house is torn apart. The yard is a mud pit. It's supposed to rain out our party Sunday. There are those who just accept fate in these situations. For me, it's a question: Do we do the full yard walkthrough, or a front yard display? The present...
