 Happy Halloween!

This was the year I finally did it. I built the haunted house in my garage. Many thanks to my patient wife Dixie who put up with several weekends of my Halloween-induced insanity. It took a lot of work, but it was so fun watching the reactions of the kids going through it. In the end, I think it was worth it. Here’s a short video showing some of the construction and then the final product. I hope you enjoy it.


 Crazy Busy

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I wrote anything. All I can say is things have been a little hectic. The month of September was a complete blur. I decided this was the year that I was going to go ahead with my Halloween plans for the garage, and so most of my free time last month was devoted to that project. Between that, some last minute travel for work, and some personal things going on that I won’t get into right now, I woke up one morning and it was October. I barely posted any pictures last month!

Well, things haven’t slowed down much, but I refuse to let another month go by without posting something, so here we are. The garage project is coming along nicely, and the kids continue to ignore our demands that they stay little. I’m sure that’s only going to get worse, so I promise stop and take a breath every so often, or else I’m going to wake up one morning and they will have left for college.
