She started her Halloween decorating tradition when her boys were young.

Wanda Bentley still tricks out her house in Grainger County even though her oldest son is 40.

"This is my favorite time of year," Wanda Bentley said.

Every fall, she transforms her home into a haunted house with horrifying touches.

"I've just collected it over the years after Halloween I go to the stores and if they've got it on sale I'll get some," she said.

Frightful touches include skeletons and spiders and rats in the sink.
