BOO!!!!!! Part I

We live in the Munsters house.

OK, I think that I am dating myself, but to me our house is as spooky as that house was. The house is an 1880, Second Empire style, two storey, but with a three story turret. I don’t know why I think it looks spooky, but I intended to play it up this Halloween. This will be the first time we are able to visit on Halloween, since we bought the house, it has always fallen on a week day. I certainly can not go as crazy as I would like to, there is the small matter of time and finances, but I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve.

First, I bought seven pumpkins. Ian just about killed me, he has always been in charge of the carving, but I will help (I promise) this year.

Then, as some of you will remember, we had a couple of trees come down in a storm. Most of it was cut up, or chipped, but some of the smaller branches were piled beside the garage,(sorry neighbours). I want to use some of them to make a bit of a path to the house.

I intend to put the pumpkins at the base and I bought some spider webs at the dollar store. I hope this makes it scary for any trick or treaters at Kilbourne Grove!

I will take pictures and show you on Monday.

P.S. This is not  our house! (although it is very cool).

      Ian is my husband, a great name, not too common, like Deborah.
      It rained in Owen Sound too, and the wind, crazy. But, we got out there and decorated. (The neighbours thought we were crazy).
