Wreck the Halls with Bowels of Ghoulies 2016

Welcome to Halloween 2016!  As usual, I didn't get to post everything I wanted, but I think I did pretty good. I did manage at least one post per day.

 My final post closing out the season is dedicated to my annual yard haunt and decorations.  Ever since I was a kid, I envied the people who went beyond the normal scarecrow on the porch and really put on a show for the kids.  It inspired me to create my own display and laid the foundation for my love of Halloween.  I hope you enjoy and a Happy Halloween to all!





























And don't forget to visit the other bloggers over at the Countdown.  They're still handing out treats!

every year i expect to be awed by your yard, and every year you exceed even my attempts to be prepared. your mantle is AWESOME! and i don't recall your yard having so much cool lighting effects. your house is definitely a "must do" for the neighborhood... how much candy do you go through??

in honor of your month of great posts, i give you this great flashback i just ran across. BoingBoing posted Pee Wee on Letterman on halloween in '83 and '84. i'm certain we saw these at the time, but i don't remember them at all:

There are some changes. I went all LED this year and replaced the red light I normally put in the porch for a green LED. Really changes the look. I also have an LED projector on the whole display, but not sure if that shows up on the photos.

I don't recall that either, but great stuff.
