Let the Countdown To Halloween Begin!


I figured I would start out the Countdown to Halloween this year by taking a quick trip down memory lane to pick out "THE BEST OF" Wicked Woods Cemetery of the past. These pictures are some of the most viewed on my site over the years. Hope you enjoy.

Breakfast of Halloween Champions

Tomorrow marks the start of the Countdown To Halloween! I am going to try to hold down a full time 55+hours a week job, decorate the house for Halloween, finish upteen hundred projects, plan and throw the biggest Halloween party yet, AND post something interesting every day in October till the big day! For this, I need THE BREAKFAST OF HALLOWEEN CHAMPIONS!


This is not my actual breakfast, this was from this past Saturday. M made me a huge breakfast to start Halloween Decorating off right. Not sure if even M's breakfast will get me through this in one piece!

On a side note, an unhealthy friendship has developed between by dapper posable skeleton and Gizmo.

I had originally bought the skele to stand out in the grave yard, but I have not had the heart to move him since Gizmo likes him so much. He actually spends a great amount of time putting his head under the skeles hands and forcing him to scratch his head.

Not sure he will like the idea of his buddy standing outside in the rain......

First looks at Wicked Woods Cemetery 2014

Season swap is done and we have most of the outdoor decorations up. Of course I will add, tweak, and change things right up until the last minute on Halloween! We still have a couple of major projects to finish for visible outdoor decor, but for now, we are focusing on decorating inside and preparing for the Annual wicKED weeKEnD Halloween party!

 I took everyone's advise and wrapped the haunt all the way around with the emphasis on the side door with the sidewalk.
The mourning skeleton make another appearance. 



Just hanging out waiting for Halloween.


The gravedigger has started early this year. I think I need to put a green light in the basement window behind him....maybe red.. I dunno.
 
 I think I may need another green light or two around the sidewalk.

Somebody is waiting.

There is a very cool fire and ice light behind him. Looks like the upstairs is on fire.

Good old Grimmace is guarding the trash cans. He was also absolutely crawling alive with spiders when I got him out.







I feel like this guy after a 3 day working weekend of about 12 hours a day.

I think I need to line the steps with pumpkins...or would that attract TOTS to come up to the wrong door...hmmm.
