My friends Paul & Kim from The Boneyard recently had their Annual 2010 ScareFest at their home.

It's always a great time because your surrounded by other home haunters, people from the Haunt Industry, Professional Haunted Houses, you can buy & sell Halloween props, see whats new in the haunt industry, fill your belly with great BBQ, and just have a fun filled day in the sun with good people.

One of those people is my friend and (Brother from another Mother) Carl Chalupa from Room 57. He took this photo of me and did an amazing job with Adobe Photo Shop making me into a Zombie.

Gemini's are known for having split personalities!

Thornhill Woods Haunted House is pleased to announce that we've created a donation page in support of the SickKids Foundation on our web site.

We've had many requests from people who haven't been able to make it out to our Home Haunt, but would still like to make a donation to our worthy cause.

Well now everyone can have the pleasure of going onto our SickKids donation page and donating on a secure web site, while learning the history of why we have partnered up with SickKids Foundation.

Thanks in advance to everyone for your support.

I'm so excited to have Old Dutch Foods Potato Chips as our Official Sponsor for a third year in a row.

Old Dutch first started in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada as a little chip company with a lot of heart back in 1954. Soon, their tradition of making and delivering great-tasting snacks spread throughout all of Canada. For over 50 years, their windmill has stood for quality and trust, old world charm, and a desire to create a long-lasting chip and snack tradition.

You know it's funny how you remember certain things as a kid growing up. I remember going out on Halloween night Trick R' Treating with my older brother and getting snack size Old Dutch Original Style Potato Chips from many homes we went to.

It now gives me great pleasure to know that I'll be that person who is responsible for handing out their Potato Chips on Halloween night and creating lasting memories for a new generation.

I also want to thank all the people who work at Old Dutch Foods, with out your support we wouldn't be able to raise the amount of donations we do for SickKids Hospital.

The Beginning of the Build

We were very happy to drive past our block today and see that the building has begun as scheduled! The site cut has started - there are retaining walls and so on still to be done. But we think it looks great and now we can see the outline of our house!

We also have been in contact with Carlisle a fair bit over the last few days and found out yesterday that our Ceasarstone bench top is no longer in production. Luckily Dave had the day off today to get our car serviced, so we went and had another look - don't like any as much as what we picked but have narrowed it down to two - decisions decisions!!!!!!!!!!
