|**I could not get my pictures to align for this post. Cuss words were said and then I gave up.**|
I know I said last week that I was taking Tuesdays off from blogging. I had no other choice but to share this insane, over the top house with you. A house like nothing I have ever seen in my entire life. These picture do not do it justice, but I did the best I could with what I had. And I didn't even scrape the surface. It would have taken me hours or possibly days.
So, I found out about this home, that people actually live in, on Facebook. It's called the Halloween House and it's in Round Rock, where we live. If you are in the area, you have to go by it. They are having another open house on Halloween.
Anyway, these people must have either a) lost their minds, b) are trying to get on TV or c) just the nicest/coolest/most loaded/creative people in this town. I pick C.
I walked into the door and no lie, and my eyes watered up...like I proud mom. I couldn't believe my eyes...literally.
I haven't a single clue who these people are or even know their names. But hey, they invited us over for some hot chocolate, Starbursts and Kit-Kats, so I guess we are are sorta of friends now, right?
I like to exaggerate from time to time, but not today. I swear EVERY inch of their home was filled with the most whimsical, intricate, detailed, crafted Halloween decor. Hobby Lobby, Micheal's, Garden Ridge nor JoAnn's couldn't hold a tea light candle to these people. I mean, I don't even know how in the world they thought of half this stuff, but I do know that the majority of it was handcrafted and designed.
I think this was the most quiet my children have EVER been in public. They were speechless and their eyes wide and round. I don't think they could wrap their little minds around what they were seeing. My mind could barely grasp it.
I mean, these people spent God knows how long finalizing every teeny-tiny detail and then welcoming complete strangers into their home for a public open house. Baffles me beyond belief.
I got a little dizzy and light headed just thinking about putting all this away. Can you even fathom? I bet it takes months. Glad it's not me
So folks, a new tradition started last night, visiting the Halloween House.
I leave you with one word: WOW!
