Ghastly Decor and Yard Haunts
We purchased a corner-lot home in 2009 with a built-in stage (porch), big gnarly trees, and open views
of the neighborhood. It's a family neighborhood, and we draw quite a few trick 'r treaters – 358 in 2013!
While we keep the outdoor display rather modest, the rest of the house gets quite a makeover.

This San Jose house was just a few blocks north of the infamous Winchester Mystery House, and nestled between two
of the area's oldest cemeteries. We never experienced any hauntings although the property was owned by a real big witch.

The McAllister flat was at the dead center of San Francisco in an area that used to be a vast cemetery.
The Edwardian house was built three years after the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906,
and served as a wayward women's halfway home. It was very much haunted.

Ghastly Parties and Outings
I've been hosting Halloween parties all my life, but they've been getting a little more elaborate since 2005.
Thoroughly decorated interiors, yard haunts, a cauldron full of new eerie recipes to try,
and of course, new themes and costumes. Our fiends seem to love them.

One of the best parts of Halloween are all the special events. From haunted attractions to
pumpkin festivals to ghost walks there's always many scary things to do.
Here are some photos of my dearest fiends and the precarious situations I put them in.
