The Starting Line

And so we begin our second year of converting our yard into the graveyard at Shingle Creek Manor. With approximately 90 days until Halloween, Belinda and I have started to prioritize the props we would like to get done... maybe with some added wishful thinking about props that we're not likely to have time to complete.

The main garage door stays down now, preventing raised eyebrows and shocked looks from our neighbors and maybe concealing the prop building from view of our competition, (we have a couple neighbors that really do a nice yard haunt). Let the fun begin...
