I've never wanted Johnny to cover our house or yard in Christmas lights
I always thought it looked a bit tacky
So we always decorated our home for Christmas in white candles in the window, greenery on the porch and around the door.
very tastefully done
But Johnny always wanted lights...lots of lights, colored lights and especially blue lights.
So I said ok...go ahead and put them on the fence only....after all, that's the backyard and the front still looked good. And that is what he did for the last few years.
You know how they tell you that you mellow with age....guess I'm mellowing out pretty good because I told Johnny this year, just go all "Griswold" if that's what you want. And that he did!
he has lights on the garage doors, a big twinkling snowflake, lights on the fence, colored lights on the deck, blue lights on the bushes and......fake deer in the front yard. Yes folks........FAKE deer in the front yard!!
And the first time that our little Maddox saw the lights, well, that look on his face just made it all worth while.
