Christmas picture!


Here's the house. Like my father before me, I am a Christmas lighting fool. :)

How pretty! What have you done inside?

Actually, not that much. I have a jingle bell wreath that was supposed to go on the back of the door, but the wreath hangar didn't fit, so now it's on the pantry door. We have some icicle lights and fake greens across the back porch door, framing the tree. And what a tree! It wasn't our first pick, but it's pretty nice. It's got all these neat lights that have a electric control that has them fade in and out, turning the tree orange, then blue, then red, then green*. Sadly we only have four ornaments, but we're thinking about having a post-Christmas ornament party to start filling it up (and catch some after-Christmas sales as well). That's about it, actually, but more will come in time. I was so concentrated on the outside I didn't worry too much about the inside, especially considering Q and I are still working on projects around the house - we're just happy it's coming together! :)



*Did you catch that rainbow motif there?

I tried to do it right. My mother gets so mad when people do icicle lights wrong - either inside the house, or colored, or hanging from places icicles wouldn't normally form. "That's not what icicles do!" she yells from the car as we drive by. It amuses us. :D

Sadly I haven't electrocuted myself, but I did almost fall off the roof.

It's helping me get in the Christmas spirit, especially given the lousy kids in the neighborhood and our lack of funds.

MORE LIGHTS! you are not visible by yourself on google maps
and for Unspecified Deity's Sake! Blue Lights make the white whiter!
sheesh.
a house is not lit enough til it gets investigated by NASA, Someday I will have a house so lit aliens will see it

Also i don't care what Meg says Icicle lights rock. at least you do not have the inflatasnoglobes or inflata Spongebob santa. I swear i am so about to grab a katana and end those things.

the Winnie the Pooh and Tigger one makes me ill. it looks like Tigger is choking Winne to death in a box

Good thing you got a picture! Sorry to hear about the stupid-heads who messed up part of it.


Anyway I think it's a very fitting tribute to your father :)

I think that's very well done - bright, but well-designed - I like lights thast outline the main lines of the house.

Without them, it frankly looked like I stopped halfway through decorating, especially with the peak at the garage. Since my neighbor didn't finish his part of the job I figured I'd outline the house to make up for his lacking. ;)
