    Well, I guess you better buy even more candy than you first thought… because EVERYONE is going to want to visit you! Those decorations are “to die for”! Was that scary? Seriously… it’s all perfect. Not too scary (for little ones) but hauntingly fun!

    The full moon was the perfect touch. That glow makes everything look amazing. So creative, Alex! I bet the kids are SUPER excited. I’d want to sleep on the front porch if I were your kid. Ha Ha! The bats turned out great, too. HAVE FUN and save some candy for YOU… you’ll need some chocolate later… when you take your bubble bath to relax and recover!

    That. Looks. Awesome. I personally think it was absolutely worth giving yourself carpal tunnel syndrome cutting those bats out…

    I do the mason jars/tealights too. How do you store them the other 11 months of the year? I just have mine in boxes and every year I swear I’m just going to recycle them because they take up a ridiculous amount of room in the basement and are a pain to get out and put away.

    One of the girls in my facebook feed picmonkeyd her profile photo. It’s hysterical. She’s drinking a giant martini with a straw, but she gave herself vampire teeth and some blood-shot eyes and grayed her face. I was tempted to go and do one of myself immediately, but I am trying to waste less time on the Internet (so far, no… it’s not working at all.)

    Love the effect of the moon with all those bats flying around your door — I am totally copying this for next year across my ugly white garage doors.

    100 trick or treaters? Impressive! Do you tell the kids you’ve run out or do you just kill the light and hide inside (we did that one year — not pretty!)?

    I love love love this! I did the bats last year flying across a second story wall of our house. Now I’m trying to decide how to make a moon and get it up there…I don’t think my husband will climb up every night to turn it on but I will come up with something!!!
