kathydip... we have used dry ice inside at our parties before, it is so much fun, but you really have to be careful with the kids around, so for our outdoor displays we have stayed with foggers and kept them roped off and out in the middle where they can't be touched because they get hot. We have strobe lights too. They are focused on the skeletons coming out of the graves.... erie! We have the cauldrons with the wind blown flames, the whole bit, it's great to see, I've not had the time to dress up. I have always tried to keep it on the spooky, yet tame side because my smallest was always a little leary of things, but he is getting braver each year. He is getting to the "let's get scary and gory" side now and I am having to talk him into keeping it tame! I don't want to scare off all of the little ones! Hee hee. He wants to hide in our graveyard as a dead person or as a skeleton and "rise" when the trick-or-treators come so he can scare them! Boys will be boys! What happen to my little person who "I" was protecting? They grow up so fast! Even the decorations he is picking out are getting a little on the gruesome side! Gooey eyeballs, fingers for the grave yard, yuck! But the kids love it. We have three sections to our display, the graveyard, the pumpkin patch & the ghosts playing & get together. What does your husband dress up as? Do you have any pictures you can share?
