We were warned right after we moved in here that the house next door is haunted.
Every year the owners go all out decorating for Halloween and let the trick or treaters walk through at their own risk.
For the past month or so, they've had people over a few times a week and worked late into the night to hang ghosts from the trees, set up a guillotine and hangman's noose, and create a pet sematary in the back yard.
V's too young for all that scariness, but we watched some of the festivities from our back deck. Chainsaws, hockey masks, and strobe lights are scary, y'all! There was a lot of screaming.
Silly me only got one giant bag of candy for the trick or treaters, and we eventually had to turn off the lights so they wouldn't be disappointed.
By 8pm, there was a huge crowd in the street waiting to get in and it sounded like a horror movie right outside my window.
We're planning to get 3 big bags of candy for next year.
