Getting ready for Halloween

So the tradition continues. Last year we decided as a family to decorate our front lawn as the theme of a Nightmare Before Christmas. It is a great movie (a masterpiece in Ellison's words) directed by Tim Burton and has wonderful music by Danny Elfman. Anyway, we decided to draw and cutout some wooden figures to put on our front lawn. This year we added a couple of more characters. We will add more characters and features as the years go by. Last year, we had several trick or treaters squeal with delight when they heard the soundtrack playing and saw Jack Skellington on the lawn. What can I say? We are a family of artists and musicians ;P

Next, on to creating some more characters for my Charlie Brown Christmas decorations.

I L-O-V-E the holidays!!

  1. Wow your yard looks great! I am going to have to bring Callie by to see it. With all the rain, I haven't decorated like I usually do! I can't wait to see your yard!
