What do you do to say

"thank you" to the entire Milwaukie Police force who do a great job of watching our yard every year? You help sponsor their annual awards dinner, sponsor I mean supply the beer and wine:)
Aren't we nice :)

Well, they let us close the street for five hours every year and supply police cadets and police cars at each end of the street to make sure that the thousands of people that visit on Halloween stay safe and sound.

Anyone that has been by the property on Halloween night will tell you this is not just a good idea, it is a necessity! We live on the corner of a very busy street that gets over 10,000 cars through each day. So you can imagine the commotion the yard display causes! Halloween night is pure chaos :)

It is a good thing that the fence around the house is real, because a PVC fence could not hold back the tide of people at the front gate.

So tonight we are going to go talk to our amazing police force and our neighborhood businesses about what a great job everyone is doing to keep our city safe.

And hope that we are doing everything we can to keep the display from getting shut down. :)
