Halloween is serious business in my neighborhood. Every year, several houses in my area get totally decked out for Halloween. Being the creative folk that we are, my family couldn’t just sit back. We jumped onto the Haunted Neighborhood bandwagon. In all honesty, we were already decorating our house before there even was a bandwagon.
My nephew, who is a pirate at heart, ended up building a full sinking pirate ship in our front yard. There’s even a hanging tree. And we can’t forget the fog machine. What would a haunted pirate ship front yard be without one of those?
So I invite you to view our own version of ooky and spooky…
These two pictures are from last year. The back part of the ship is a new edition. We don't have any pictures of the back part at night yet.
This is the infamous hanging tree. Who knew so many skeletons and goblins could hang from one tree?
This is the boneyard, where skeleton's can buy their spare parts. The proprietress's name is affectionately named by my nephew "BoneHeala." I believe he got the name from the new Sims 3 Supernatural game. Your Sim can buy a skeleton maid named BoneHilda.
And last but not least, this is the new part of the ship. No worries. It's not smoke. There's a fog machine hidden inside.
So there you go, a tour into my creepy front yard. No need to worry. My yard will return to normal soon--until Christmas, that is!
