Halloween House 2015

We’ve lived on a busy halloween street for two years now and I love it. Between last year before Halloween, plus some clearance and a little bit this October, we have built up a bit of  a collection of outside decorations; a bit all over the place theme-wise, but a collection nonetheless. I tried to narrow the porch area down to orange/spiders and then we had ghosts around the yard. Plus a skeleton. And a zombie head. And a bird. Everyone has their favorites and it’s hard to narrow things down.



I thought my bar cart candy station was so clever. And then Truman figured out how to unwrap lollipops.


Finishing touches. Our glow in the dark spiders were disappointingly non-glowy.

Weirdly obsessed with the skeleton bird in a cage.


He started the day as a web-trapped skeleton, but he didn’t stay there all night.


Truman loves this zombie head. He said hi to it every day. Weirdo.


Last year’s eyeball wreath matched nothing this year but the kids wouldn’t let me leave it in the storage tub.

Floating eye of death! My only DIY this year. It’s paper mache – basically an unfilled eyeball pinata.

It got busy enough that we sat on the porch and gave away candy – or ate it, in Spencer’s case


Hope everyone had a great Halloween! I am debating a NaBloPoMo – or in my case a NaBloPhoMo (mostly photo posts), if that is a thing. I have felt disconnected from this blog and feel like it might be finally fading out. But at the same time I miss it. Maybe posting once per day will make me feel recharged and clean up the million things in draft.
