This year our Halloween Haunt almost didn’t happen. A few weeks before Halloween I just wasn’t feeling motivated to spend hours upon hours setting up the yard and the maze. Neighbors and friends kept asking, “are you doing your maze again this year?” And I would answer that maybe we would be doing it, but I hadn’t decided yet. I wasn’t looking forward to the time commitment and my lawn being compacted and damaged by the thousands of footsteps walking through the maze, then having to revive the lawn next spring.
Well, my kids wanted so badly to do it and so I told them that if it was going to happen that they would need to take charge and make it happen and they suggested that we set it up in the garage. It is a good thing that we had planned on setting up the maze in the garage because the day after we set up the graveyard fence and tombstones it snowed. Like four inches of snow.
So, we embraced the snow and the cold weather and posed our skeletons like they were sledding, having a snowball fight, and drinking hot chocolate near the fireplace. We didn’t use any animatronic or projection props this year since the kiddos didn’t set them up. It was a pretty “chill” year and we’re already looking forward to next year.
Happy Halloween from the Dimmicks!
