To decorate or not to decorate outside for Christmas...????

Category: Christmas | Posted: Tue Dec 04, 2007 12:35 am

We usually don't put a lot of outside decorations up for Christmas but this year we went a little farther ...It all started with our new neighbors, Tom and Dawn. Very nice people and they have 2 children. I know this is one of the reasons they decorated was for their children. They made a real cute snowman with their Dad too after our first good snow on the weekend. I noticed the snowman had Tom's baseball hat on today...I guess he figures he will need a warmer one for our cold weather...

Getting back to decorating, our children are all grown so I guess you would say we decorate for ourselves and the neighbors. Tom started putting up his decorations so we did too. He put something up and then we did. It seemed just like we were trying to outdo one another...maybe it was a challenge...well, I took the challenge. We had never put holes into the siding before this year...the house is only a few years old so I suppose that is one reason we haven't. We really wanted the house to look good but not junky...

Well, I am happy to say Tom didn't go overboard and I was glad for that...I couldn't let him out-due us now could we.....?

I am happy to say we are done and I hope we have a lot of on-lookers that drive around looking at our neighborhood Christmas decorations. I hope everyone has a Happy Holiday...I did end up putting some large bells on the front door after the pictures ..I will add that picture after I take more...

How did you decorate this year? Maybe a challenge?

Everything looks really pretty Sherry, enough to make it exciting to look at but not overpowering.

We don't decorate outside at all, I didn't decorate inside at all last year haven't decided about this year yet.

I love the red ball Sherry - it looks as though it has fireflies in it!!

Your decorations are really lovely and I'm sure everyone who sees them will be delighted with your display.

Sherry8 it is very pretty. I would love to be able to decorate outside, but it all has to come down!! Too much for my back after 3 surgeries. I do like to deco inside (for me). My little tree and all of my snowmen.

Those were nice decorations, it looks festive and tasteful. Us Norwegians never decorate much outside for Christmas. All the more inside, though. :)

Looks great Sherry!
We used to decorate the house with lots of boughs and red ribbons and lights. The first Christmas at our new house I decorated the same took HOURS!! 3 days later, the first of the winter winds hit and everything was blown apart. I haven't decorated outdoors since! We just get too much wind here.

How creative is that red ball. I love decorating outside but I will not this year because it took me until Feb to take down the decorations, so I am in time out.
