Hello! Longtime lurker, first-time poster, here. With time winding down before Halloween (cough), I thought I'd finally go ahead and become a member. I've only been yard decorating for about four years and have really enjoyed decorating over the past two Halloweens now that I own my own home. I am nowhere near in the same league as many of the extreme decorators here, and marvel at the creativity and know-how of many of you. We've had a pretty decent turn-out over the past two years, with roughly 40 or so trick-`r-treaters stopping by. I'm fine with those numbers, and intend on stepping up my game every year with new ideas and themes to delight and terrorize the neighborhood.
