My cousin inspired me today.
He posted his outdoor Christmas Lights for all to see. And so I have posted mine here:
Our mutual other cousin's light display is really not to be reckoned with. People come to see it by bus...that's how popular it is. It's amazing...and I personally think he deserves more than $100 for his prize. Check out the equipment alone that goes into his display.
When I bought my five stars to put in my windows, I had high hopes for the amount of light they would put forth. I obviously have not come to terms with just how LARGE my windows are. These 5 little stars bring me so much joy. I love seeing them out there, the lone tribute to Christmas, with just one other balcony that I heard has lights, but I have yet to witness!
Tonight the girls and I went caroling. 5 couples we know live in a building nearby, so we spread our Christmas Cheer with carols and cards. Then we came home and caroled to our super and our neighbors. The girls scored cookies at 3 places...an unexpected surprise, and now they LOVE caroling! It was so much fun to do as our Family Home (Away) Evening tonight. We sang Jingle Bells and Silent Night, and by the last house, lil sis even got the "HEY!" in the right place. Super.
