Halloween is one of our favorite holidays! Growing up with
Jamie's family ment you were preparing for this holiday weeks in advance. Jamie's dad
has always done these really elaborate displays in his front yard. Not only do
the children, but the adults, in the Downriver area (Detroit suburbs) always looked forward to his displays. He became well know as Detroit's "Halloween King".
Some of you might already know that Jamie & DJ have moved "back home" to Downriver Detroit for a year (while Jim is deployed). So this year we get to help out the "Halloween King" with his display this year! What can he be planning? You will have to wait and see. Here is a hint tho... Beware of open coffins!
"As far as costumes go...well...DJ has really taken to all things midevil. So I am guessing that this year he will be a knight. Or maybe a big dragon? We will have to wait and see!"
