The Christmas Lights


As you can tell I love Christmas - love to decorate. I love love the twinkling lights... For the first fourteen years while living at our home- I decorated the front yard - I put down the sheets of snowy white cotton on the lawn that sparkled in the morning like real snow from the dew on the ground... I covered the bushes with millions of lights and everything else that did not move.. Our lights would twinkle every night until Christmas night and then we would pack up everything for the next year.....

Well, the past three (3) years I have given the task of the outdoor decorating to the husband... Granted - he doesn't go as overboard as I tend to do... He'll wrap the bushes with a strand or two of lights.... he'll even set up the six (6) foot Santa globe... and place the candy canes along the lawn border... but this year I needed more... more I tell you....

When the hub went to work - my kid and I went to the task of putting up the flying snow man and the snowman teeter totter.. - I couldn't help myself - oh and hologram penguins too!!


The only problem is when the husband does the decorations the fuse always kills the lights... when I do them well let's just say our home is bright.... next year - I'm thinking it'll be a team effort...

I am thinking that each year we will add a new piece to our Christmas decorations for the yard. I love spending this time enjoying the season with our neighbors! Just knowing that lights may make them smile on the way home.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'm glad I've come by today.

I've been enjoying looking at all the stuff other bloggers have been doing to their homes this Christmas. I haven't done much myself, so it's great getting in the Christmas spirit vicariously through blogging.

That does look pretty great though! My outdoor decorations are a little pathetic this year!
