All lit up

Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny ^$#ing Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white a$$ down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of a$$holes this side of the nuthouse.

Remember the Griswold's? We're sort of that family.  We LOVE Christmas. We love our Christmas decorations and our lights and everything about the holiday season.  I thought I would share with you how our house looks with the lights on.

But first here's my home made Christmas wreath. A few years ago I made these for family with pine cones found in our very own backyard.


Now queue the drum roll please.....





Ta da!

Ok, not as spectacular as The Griswold's display of white lights, but hopefully coming close.  Some of the lights were turned off (the front Big window and the small window to the right.)  I quickly ran outside to take pics, not thinking I should check to make sure they were all turned on.

Here's our fence:


It's so hard capturing night time shots.  The flash really made the lights look less interesting. This year we actually cut back on lights, since last year we almost started our house on fire. No joke. We had too many of the old style C9 lights and we overloaded the circuit. Our bathroom outlet literally started smoking.  We had an electrician come and they had to replace the entire outlet since it was all burned up.  So after Christmas 2010, we scored some new LED lights to display. We hope to get even more after this Christmas, because we're C R A Z Y like that. 


Do you put up Christmas lights? We love driving around looking at them and we hope ours bring joy to all the people that see them.

4 more days until Santa comes! My kids couldn't be more excited.
