Current and Past Years

 

 

2013

I got reorganized this year.  Rebuilt the MIDI system I pulled out of the basement (which had rust on the motherboard) and built the new Crank Ghost and redid the Barrel Jumper.  Put out what I could and the kids had fun…  On to next year!

 

 

 

2011

I admit I wasn’t even going to decorate this year but it turned out I was off work so I ended up putting out quite a few things.  Overall we had a lot of kids this year for our new area.

 

 

 

2010

I was still unpacking from the move to the new house but we managed to put something together for the wee ones.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2009

First Halloween after the move.  House in mid renovations.  I barely had time to even plug in a light.  Same old same old!

 

 

 

2008

Was preparing for a move and looking for a new house to buy.  Gave out treats and carved a few pumpkins.  No props or decorations that year!

 

 

 

2006

Had a new baby boy on the 7th.  Dade Ethan Barry.  Halloween was a wash…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2005

A bit of a last minute scramble this year.  I didn’t even think I’d get a display out this year but after a few comments from some kids in the area I decided to set it up the week before.

 

 

 

2004

Much better than last year but nothing like I’d hoped… I spent a lot of money on landscaping the house this year so the props took a back seat…  First year with Pneumatics.

 

 

 

 

2003

This was our first year.  Just a simple yard display using off the shelf decorations.  Only one custom prop was created…
