Our Outdoor Lights.....

I wanted to share our outdoor lights with you. Hubby does a great job each year putting them up. Hope you enjoy. This first picture is on our front porch.




Today is Lexi's last day of school for two weeks. She is quite excited! It is also a play day with their Christmas party, Pajama Day and another Mini Society. I'll show you on Monday what all we made for this Mini Society. Have a great weekend.♥

Darlene your lights are so pretty! Good job hubby.

Hey did you hear that we may get snow next week? Keeping my fingers crossed. My husband swore me to secrecy - one year our family from Texas was trapped here for several days because of snow and ice. If they know they won't come!

LOVE your outdoor lights. This is the first year my husband didn't put the lights around the house...he opted for spotlights on the wreaths on the windows. It is a change...but I love those icycle lights best.

Life is good! said...

Hi Darlene,
You house looks amazing your hubby does do a wonderful job with the lights!
You know, I can't craft with lights without thinking about you. Even when I was putting lights in the vase the other day I was thinking about you (I really was)!!!
I know you like your lights and you have just a sparkily personality! I love that about you!

Have a Merry weekend,

Love,
Me~♥

Darlene, your Christmas lights are beautiful. We have some lights up but not too much. We will be in Florida for Christmas. It is hard work putting up the lights and your hubby is a dear to put in the effort. It is so worth it all.

We are snowed in Darlene. The snow this morning just kept on until we have a foot of snow with more tonight. We were supposed to go to TN, 2 1/2 hours from here over some very high mountains. It is too dangerous to leave our house. sigh! I have all the gifts to take them and now who knows when we will get together. Such is life.

CC is not walking in the snow. She is just about buried in it. HA! Lexi would love this snow. it is perfect for making a snowman. Tomorrow we may get out and make one. Of course I will take a photo just for Lexi.

Christmas love, Jeanne

I love that the kids are out of school...now it is time for baking, watching movies, making memories and driving around to look at lights....hey, maybe we'll drive to your neighborhood!

Merry Christmas my Friend,

Ramona

Your Christmas lights are wonderful. Kudos to your hubby. We don't do outdoor lights, but my kids love to go and look at them and wish we did. : )

I also love your teachers gifts. The snowmen are cute and who doesn't love a smiley snowman face.

I remember being a kid and seeing people's houses with lights on always made me even MORE excited for Christmas!

Seeing those outdoor lightings makes me long for Christmas. It’s just so warm and prosperous to the sight of any observer. I give kudos to your husband even though it's way too late! Did you set up the same style last Christmas?
