I am awfully excited about what I did yesterday. I got the Christmas lights on the house! There was a cold front moving in today, yesterday was just beautiful (despite the wind), so I took the afternoon and got the lights on all the windows and in the bushes. I still have a few to put up, like the icicles and the Nativity set, but I'm gonna wait until after Thanksgiving to do that.
Sally turned them on while I was out and when I came home they just looked beautiful. It is so exciting to be able to put lights on the roof and to do that WITHOUT using a transformer!
The only thing I am fairly disappointed about is the fact that I can't find any of the "blow-mold" candles that say "Noel". Wal-Mart only sells blow-mold Santas and inflatable stuff. I don't want Santas or inflatable stuff so I'll just have to keep looking. If anyone knows who is selling blow-mold candles this year, please let me know.
Here is a picture of some outdoor Noel Candles that we had on our last furlough in Tulsa:
