Halloween is a really big deal in our neighborhood, thanks to my husband.
I used to think it was a "no big deal" and an "eat a bunch of candy" kind of a holiday. Then Dale bought a hearse. And parked it on our front lawn. And in a visionary "build it and they will come" sort of way... he built it and sure enough, they came.
So we dressed up for the occasion. And yes, I realize how lame my costume was that year. I was still getting used this "over the top" concept for Halloween:

And who could resist a baby pirate?
|Baby Ryatt- Post Trick or Treating and still smiling|
|The Incredibles 2005|
And then it became a tradition. And our Christmas card photos. I'll dig up more pics for next week.
As for Dale's 2011 Halloween plans, here's this week's progress report. The rickety fence is up, and the hearses have taken their rightful places as lawn ornaments:

39 Days until Halloween.
