Our outdoor Holiday lighting directly corresponds to how cold it is the week after Thanksgiving. The colder the weather the less lights. It was chilly this year. And regardless of the weather in late November you can be assured that in January when you are taking the lights down, the weather will be down right frigid.
This year we put up a lighted garland around the door frame.
The little lighted trees in pots used to be on the front porch in previous years, but I decided to get wild and move them to the sides of the garage. Yep, living on the edge here!
You can see the dining room tree from the front yard, so we're counting that as outside lights.
What is that glowing off in the distance?
Well, it's our lighting plan gone a little overboard.
You see, I had this moose that I bought on clearance at Target a few years ago.
Here he is in the daylight (prior to the snow)
and his deer cousins that I bought on clearance at Big Lots last year.
Since we were going to put them in the yard, we figured we'd put a row of lights on the fence along with a tasteful lighted wreath. But then we had a lot of lights left over, so we basically put ALL the rest of them on the fence.
Yes, it's bright. But you know, people slow down to look at the house. I prefer to think it's because they like the display and not that they think the house is on fire.
