More Halloween / Birthday Party Pictures

Here are a few more pictures taken around the time of the party, most of these were taken by other people who sent them to us. We were too busy chasing kids around to take any pictures. :)

Be sure to check out the cake in the last picture...

Grim Hollow Halloween/Birthday Party Decorations

This year, we decided to throw a Halloween/Birthday Party for our two youngest sons. Both of them have a birthday within a couple of weeks of Halloween, and since everything else was set up we figured this would be a great idea. It made me wish that my birthday was closer to Halloween.

Here are a few pictures we took of some of the decorations...

We had a lot of other decorations inside, but I thought the pictures with the lights in them turned out the best.

Our "Ghost" Costumes

Well, in my mind they are ghosts. Somebody posted this picture a while back, I can't remember who or where this picture was taken. It looks like it must have been at an amusement park from the roller coaster track in the background. I always thought this would make a good costume, so this year I bought some cheap drop cloths from Lowe's, and dyed them a slightly darker color to replicate the look of these props. I just used some black material under them, hoping it would appear we were kind of "floating" in low light. I also used some black, see through material inside the hood for that faceless look.

Here's the picture I got the idea from...

Halloween in Our Neighborhood

I love seeing pictures that other people take of our haunt and the surrounding area. Here are a few that my dad took at Grim Hollow and some other places in the neighborhood. Some of these turned out really great.

Family Halloween Picture

My neighbors mom took a picture of us on Halloween, as we were preparing for the Trick or Treaters. I never count them, but I guess we had between 400 to 500 people come by.
