Lighting Up

Did you know I love Christmas? I love the holidays about as much as humanly possible. Like…the way cats and dogs love sunny spots on the carpet. That’s how I feel about the holidays.
Sunday was spent getting all of the Christmas lights up outside. I can’t believe it took us this long got get it done. And after a few trips to Wal-mart, we finally got everything put together, plugged in, and looking festive.

It looks wonderful. =)

Yea. We’re that house with the inflatable penguin.

 Me out front of the house. My green-lit garland looks a bit tacky, might have to adjust that. Although our neighbors did say that the house looks more beautiful than it has in 40 years!

See that tree next to the penguin? Mike made it. They sell those things for like 60 bucks in Wally World and Lowe’s. We made ours with some PVC pipe and strands of lights I already had for around $15. And when I saw WE I mean MIKE.

After we finished decorating, we met up with Joenee and Peyton to go see the lights downtown.

They had free cider, hot chocolate, and cookies, and an adorable beginners advanced (that means beginners elderly people) band was playing holiday music.

We walked around for a while, “ooh-ed” and “aah-ed” at the lights, made fun of Renee for spilling on her mittens, and then called it a night.
