We do a fairly simple, yet fun, setup in front of our house for Halloween. Some pumpkins, a spinning light display, fake spider webbing that we added this year, a Frankenstein's monster painted decorative pumpkin on top of our tall arbor vitae, and a large inflated and internally lit Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

I love it for its simplicity.

Our Nest doorbell? Not so much. 

Oogie only has a roughly humanoid shape. Okay, barely humanoid. I guess if you’re in a green Klan hood with no discernible legs. It’s enough that it is regularly tripping the Person alerts feature on our doorbell, though.


So much for artificial intelligence, eh?

My old buddy GundarkHunter got last week’s challenge photo with zero issue whatsoever. I got a sackful of sweets for whomever guesses this one correctly. Its the most wonderful time of the year, folks!
