Scenes From My Yard


Last year when we were decorating our yard, a very sweet neighbor said to us, "You do this every year.  Don't you get tired?"  I am not exactly sure that he meant our decorations were getting boring, rather than it is a lot of work to put it all together, but husband started to worry we were getting stale.  We tried to mix it up a bit this year, adding a few things and taking a few away.  Although it looks cooler at night, it photographs better during the day.

In case you are wondering, we are definitely not the most decorated house in the neighborhood.  In fact, there is a competition held every year for best Halloween decorations that we have never even come close to winning.  I like to think we get a little bit better every year.

For a peek at our yard in 2011, check this and this out.

your yard looks awesome

Lorena said...

I think you guys do a great job.
I don't decorate for Halloween as my husband hates skulls and anything Halloween related.
ALl we do is cover the apartment door in cow webs and then dress up and wait for kids to ring the doorbell and scare the hell out of them.
BTW that baby and the umbilical cord are quite spooky.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith.Rinoplasti
