[quote=""Leyland""]Sounds fun - maybe you could have a Trick or Treat Hunt on your property. Kinda like an Easter Egg Hunt. The kids could burn off sugar highs while running around looking for more treats. Or maybe they'll find they've been tricked instead. :) [/quote]

That's exactly what we intend to do! Plus, my husband created a zip line for the girls, and we'll probably string that up for the kids to play on. I've dreaded Halloween in years past because the girls always want to dress up and go trick or treating, but we don't know that many people on our street, so there are only a small number of homes we can visit. We, ourselves, never get trick or treaters. Our house sits back at least 1400 feet from the road and the front is totally wooded (we've often thought of doing a "haunted woods" theme for our adult friends). Our backyard is like a park. Lot's of space for the kids to play and do stuff, so I'm looking forward to being able to do something this year.

Haunted woods? I'm in! My woods on my place twenty miles north of Greenville SC are on partly flat ground and then down some steep hills, so I'd probably have to help pick up fallen guests or get them disentangled from mountain laurel thickets - with a chainsaw. Texas style. ;)

But I'd just love to have a Haunted Moonshine Still or a Haunted Holler with ghosts floating through the trees. And maybe Hell Hounds - I'll dress up the Cocker Spaniels and make them look really scary. Yeah, right!

Scary Cocker Spaniels, that would be funny to see, can they even be scary?! My Jasper is part Cocker and he's just too cute for words!
