...to my husband, whose idea it was to put some simple headstones in our yard.  He didn't realize that I would need to take it to the next level.  Now he is a hostage to my Halloween madness.

...to all the INCREDIBLE staff at the Staunton-Augusta-Waynesboro ReStore.

...to my dear Seattle Girls' Choir "Alum Chum", Lara.  We've sung high C's, ridden on Soviet trains, and now have made a whimsical little witch fly on a cello!  Your creativity and artistry are only surpassed by your capacity for love.

...to my beloved, macabre, Halloween partner-in-crime, Nicole.  Thank you for being excited about all one million Halloween texts and for helping me bring "Lucinda" to life!

...to our nephew, Sam, who never imagined that his aeronautical engineering degree would one day be used for bats!  Your design is the perfect fusion of art and science.

...to Annie, Elisa, and Kelly of the Bessie Weller, McSwain, and Ware Elementary PTAs for being such INCREDIBLE partners.

...to my brother, Little Tim, for saying "sure" to yard signs and my Mom for always being whimsical. 

...to Maya who devoted her Saturday afternoon to moving spooky trees, witches, ghosts, and cemetery fencing.

...to the little neighborhood cobweb fairies who outdid themselves this year!

...to Ken who generously provided us with heirloom pumpkins for our porch.

...to Heather who once again helped me thread thick twine through ridiculously small holes.

...to Abby, Adam, Ann, Jason, Maya, and Vera, for making sure that no one tripped over cords.

...to my mom who didn't realize she bought ghost parts.

...to Lance for helping us with SO MANY THINGS, including dry ice.

...to Jeston at the Staunton Staples for providing our flyers.

...to the Staunton Martin's for helping us with trick-or-treat candy.

Love you ladies!
