Who's Done With Their Decorating?

You? And you, too? Damn. Bend over and let me give you a swift kick because I'm totally jealous.

This is the one night of the year that our neighborhood puts out the luminaries for all to see.

And, by the freaking by, the neighborhood committee would love it if you'd have your house and yard decorated as well. Grrrrr.

But it's really quite beautiful and festive and this year is the 30th anniversary of the lights which someone decided to call, ahem, "Lights For Jesus".

So I better get busy and slap some lights up outside and maybe decorate the front of my Christmas tree-- the side that's in the front window. ha!

UPDATE: 4:00 PM - luminaries in place. Waiting until 5:30 to go back out and light them en masse.

Hell, yeah, Brooke! That's productive! Fedex some snow down my way.

Nope, my tree is still "displayed" in it's box in the basement closet. The ornaments are "displayed" in a box next to the tree box.

Wood blinds slats are the lightest of all blinds and are generally the best bet for large windows. They are known to give a cozy feel to the room and provide the desired privacy, even while allowing enough sunlight to filter through the slats.

The luminaries are beautiful, Susan! You did it!

I've started putting out my angels, and I have the garlands on the step rail and mail box. The tree? Well, that adventure is next week. I like to build slowly, then really enjoy the decorations between Christmas and New year, and then start taking down.

Beautiful beautiful beautiful!

Thank you, Shirl. I like you stress free way of decorating! My tree is up but there is nothing on it yet. ha!

Chris does the stress-free decorating, too, I see. That's funny, Chris!
