October Decorated Yard of the Month!

October 2014 Yard of the Month: 500 ThompsonVincent and Jennifer Verdugo, 500 Thompson

Comments from the homeowners:

Thanks so much for choosing our yard as the Decorated Yard of the Month! It’s such a fun time of year for us, and it’s a treat when others enjoy it too! Anyone who knows the Verdugo family understands that we’re a little obsessed when it comes to Halloween. The annual display has become a family hobby, and we begin gathering ideas long before October. Because we make most items from scratch we usually begin building early in the summer, and we challenge ourselves to come up with something new each year. By far, the best part for us is sharing the fun with neighbors and friends on Halloween night. Even though it’s definitely spooky, we avoid anything too gory so that the little ones can enjoy it too. We love seeing the reactions of kids and chatting with people who stop by and stay a while. For us it’s all about doing something creative and having fun. We also love it when we spot other “haunts” in nearby yards, and we enjoy checking out the great displays in that pop up around the neighborhood this time of year.
