New to blogging

Hello All!

We are new to blogging, but figured we would give it a try to keep everyone updated on our progress this year. 

We are starting to plan for Halloween!  Operation: Scare and Share is under way.  We are already programming one song, picked by our new friends, the Desjardins Family.  Hayley, last year's Wish recipient, really likes the song, "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell and we thought it would be perfect for this year's show.  Reed has started the process and will be programming the lights to sing along the words of the song.  We designed a new "face" for the house this year (it is a little creepier than last year) and we have discovered that Reed is excellent at programming the mouth and the blinking (which is a HUGE is a very long process). 

We also had some really great suggestions for other songs..."The Adams Family", "Monster Mash", "This is Halloween", etc...but you will have to stop by to find out what we picked!

We plan on updating our website with showtimes in the early part of October.  We will also be posting times on Facebook and here on our new blog!

Operation: Scare and Share will be a canned food drive.  If you would like to donate, just bring a canned food item and place it in the drop box when the come to see the lights.  We will be donating all of the food to St. Mary's Food Pantry in Wells. 

So, check in for updates and we hope to see you at Halloween!
