Most of the things I learned this year I picked up from this forum! My tombstones were staked with pvc and rebar. They were so much easier to set up and I didn't have to keep climbing the hill to fix them because none of them fell over! My lighting was more dramatic thanks to a link someone posted. The only hiccup I had was an hour before trick or treat I broke a red light bulb. I opened the package and the stupid thing went flying and a giant chunk came out of twisted glass. My boyfriend volunteered to run to the store and grab me one while I finished up the house. I did most of my outdoor decorating the week of Halloween. I wish I would have done it a little earlier so that 1) the work would have been more spread out and 2) I could have enjoyed it longer.
