With the shift to the pumpkin carving becoming the focus, I shifted to how to flesh that out in 2011. The first Chimera was born.



2012...the kids talked me into a graveyard as a one off...



2013, I wanted to punctuate the harvest theme as I planned to move on in 2014.



2014, the Spartan. I lost my job in January. Unemployed until October 6th. No time to take of to prepare for Halloween, and we lost my father in law on October 14.

The party is entirely donated by the neighborhood. Pumpkins, food, all.



2015: I decided to take a different spin off the famous sentinels and come up with a 'pregnant' version...I saw some other takes on THAT idea running around the last couple years.



2016, construction stage 1. Doubling the size of your house takes time...Started in April, we gave the construction crew the week off to do Halloween.



2017, back yard actually dangerous state of construction, so front yard more display.



2018, yardwork most the year, no budget. Took that as a challenge.



2019. Trevor's return. Year one of an intended 3 year plan.

You have had the most original theme ideas here on the forum. Your props are so well thought out . They have perfect execution to convey a unique feeling to that years' theme. Bravo!
