Our House at Christmas!

We go all out when it comes to decorating our house for Christmas. Every year we put up a bunch of lights, lawn ornaments, etc. For many years, our neighborhood association had a contest for the best holiday lights and we won four years in a row! The only reason we didn't win this year was because they decided not to hold the contest (they're just jealous!). While our house may not be Clark Griswold -worthy, it's pretty darn close and we are affectionately known as "The Griswold's" at Christmastime because of our decorations. Of course, all the credit goes to Jeff (for the outside of the house, anyway!). He spends many hours putting up all the lights and decorations, risking life and limb (unlike our wimpy neighbors - haha!). So, I had to show off the house, which the kids say STILL needs more lights. We usually add some feature every year to our increasing inventory of Christmas decor. Who cares if it takes up half our garage to store it all?

Lights across the entire roof. I'm telling you, if a neighbor gets retina damage, then the lights are a success. And only then! :)
