Hi Everyone! I live in Minnesota and have had a bucket list item to have a huge Halloween Party, redecorating my whole house, every picture, every curtain, etc along with transforming my front yard into a haunted graveyard. Anyway, due to life and raising 3 children, work, finances, I have had to put it off until this year. I have been collecting over the years and my husband had built your basic tombstones, coffin type items as my 3 sons were growing up. We always had the coolest yard in the neighborhood but nothing like what I am seeing on this forum. You people are so amazing, creative and talented. If only I had found all of you years ago instead of a couple of days ago! I don't know much about making the animated creatures but am excited to learn and have 3 grown sons now that can help, along with a very supportive husband! He's not the Halloween fanatic like myself, but very willing to support my addiction! I am still figuring out navigating the site so I apologize to those of you that have already answered my questions for no thank yous and appreciate the info and the great ideas in general. Looking forward to a long and exciting relationship with all of you! Happy Hauntings!
