Happy Halloween, again!

This is Halloween. This is Halloween. 🙂 I just wanted to share a couple of photos because it’s Halloween.

There’s this house about 10 minutes from where we live that goes all out for Halloween. When I say “goes all out”, I really mean “GOES ALL OUT”. This house has been featured on TV nationwide many times before, so we wanted to see what the hype was all about. It’s called the DC Cemetery. I didn’t take that many photos, but here’s some to look at:

The best part about this house is that it’s interactive. Some of the figures move and “talk”. There’s even music that plays in the background. It’s pretty cool. If you want to see more of it, here’s a video about it:

…and I thought it would be fun to do a RAK for Halloween.

Just leave a comment to this post telling me the best costume that you saw this year, and I’ll put your name into the drawing. If I’m over THIRTY comments, I’ll draw two names, and send prizes out to TWO different people. You have until Wednesday, November 4th to play!

Now, it’s time for me to start packing. 🙂

    that family in your neighborhood makes me want to scream. they are one of the lamest people ever. scott, you should have called the cops for neighborhood disturbance. the next time i see their stupid little child slow down sign i really just might hit it with the baseball bat in my car.

    Best costume was a homemade pirate and his mate…so great!

  8. wow, that house looks pretty scary! It must take them weeks to get all the decorations up! Gosh.

    Best costume I saw this year was someone dressed up as Janet Jackson during her little Superbowl incident (aka wardrobe malfunction). They had a little hand over her boob and everything. It was pretty funny!

  9. I saw some random people at the airport wearing costumes. Couldn’t tell if they worked there or if they were flying out somewhere? But… of course, I did ♥ my little vampire.

  16. We don’t celebrate Halloween in Belgium so I can’t tell you what costume was the best ;-). I did decorate a little in my living room. There were Halloween candles and I carved a pumpkin.

  17. Can I say my son was the best Spiderman EVER!! There were some cute ones in the neighborhood… 2 girls that made crayon costumes out of felt, that was neat. 🙂

  18. The best costume I actually saw this year was actually an entire family of costumes…the dad was Shaggy, mom was Velma, daughter was Daphne, and baby boy was Scooby Doo. It was so adorable to see the entire family all dressed up together in the matching theme…too cute!!

    Well my neighbors cut leg holes in a cardboard box and decorated the outside to look like a refridgerator. They cut a “front door” so that it opened, and they glued plastic foods and the covers of real foods to the inside. Their little boy was wearing it and it must have been a little heavy or awkward because when he turned to leave our porch i thought he was going to tip over! It was pretty cute!

  20. Hanneke

    That is one cool house!!!!! Very scary!!! We don’t celebrate Halloween so no costumes overhere!! But I thought Adam (Julie’s son) had a very cool outfit!!!!!
