Halloween Outside

You may keep you're skeletons in the closet but we keep ours outside ;). haha It probably won't grace the covers of Better Homes and Gardens, but we had the best time decorating for halloween this year!! We went with a skeleton theme!
We finally finished the outside of our house, and we'll hope we'll have lots of customers for our "DEAD and Breakfast"

We have some seriously eager customers who can't wait for the grand opening, they're trying to break in through the windows!
Some are hanging out on our front porch . . . and some are coming out of the ground!
We are so excited for Halloween Night, if last year is any indication of this year we're expecting just over 400 trick or treaters (I'm seriously last year we ran out of candy after 400 kids). Our block will have a DJ, a very spooky haunted house, a Tim Hortons truck giving out free hot chocolate and coffee, a smoke canon, and a BIG PARTY!!! To see all of our photos from Saturdays Party, check out our facebook page for all of the gruesome details.

  2. Wow! I'm impressed your house looks amazing! Apparently I should move the family to your neighborhood; we do not have any of that going on. I usually get about 200 trick or treaters and I thought that was a lot, but you have me beat. Although this year Hurricane Sandy is due to put quite a damper on the festivities, so I doubt we will have more than a few dozen.

  3. Wow! How cute!

    We didn't do a whole lot this year, mostly lights in protected spaces, due to that trick-or-treater known as SANDY who's due to make an appearance. My brother is the one who goes all out, including a COFFIN on the front lawn. LOL.

  9. It looks amazing! We hardly have any kids come by. We end up going to another community to trick or treat with our kids and leave a bowl out.

  10. Wondering where you get your skeletons....they are great. I have seen the ones that are in pieces, but not the "fully assembled" version anywhere. When I first saw the picture of your house, it reminded me of the miniature model town in the movie Beetlejuice. The lights totally make it pop! Love it!

  11. Well, Sandy has scared our decorations inside too. City of Toronto has asked everyone to take their stuff in, along with ALL items not secured to the ground or house.

    Hope we'll be able to put them out at least the day of to spook things up a bit. We have a spider theme at the ready!

    Great job putting your Dead and Breakfast together.

  13. Wow, that is awesome! I love how the skeletons are actually climbing the house! Would have loved to decorate but just moved into the new house and are mid-renovation. At least my son carved a pumpkin though.

  16. On another note - I know you have a Tassimo, if you like the Timmies, you will live to know that they are now making Tim Horton's t-discs! I just about jumped off the couch to go to the store in the thick of the storm to go get some.

  19. Your house looks amazing. I was floored when I read '400 trick or treaters', I had to read it several times! Here in Australia where Halloween isn't much of a thing, I bought some chocolate thinking a couple of kids might come to the door and was disappointed when not one did! But 400! I can't even imagine!
