Our big family decorating holiday has been Halloween--we're known in the neighborhood for putting on a haunted house. Last year's was the best--albeit the last one--we had our daughter's JROTC friends as actors, we hosted about 300 people, and offered 2 scare levels: one for little kids where the actors danced, and the 2nd was the terrifying one--screaming, slamming doors, jumping out at people, just all 'round scary fun!! A couple of folks even told us that our haunted house was better than the ones they had paid for!! I digress--our Halloween, Xmas and Thanksgiving decorations take up about 1/3 of the floor space!
Household items just keep showing up in the garage--kitchen, kids stuff, tools and men's toys, books, we have 7 tables of treasures plus at least 15 bins of 25 and 50 cent items!!
