I love driving home each night and seeing the house all decked out in lights! It really brings a huge smile to my face each time I turn the street corner. Last year we got a bargain on all of the lights and I was surprised that we used every last box! One trick we learned when putting the lights up was to use hot glue to attach the lights around the brick/stone. It easily peels right off when we are done and requires nothing special.
This year we also added shatter-resistant ornaments to the garland. It really looks gorgeous!
Last night I also tried to take some pics of my kids for our annual Christmas card. I make every single one by hand and was thinking about scaling back this year, but was touched when someone told me how they hang it up at their office. I guess I will have to crank them out this weekend! I will upload pics of last year’s card for those of you that need inspiration. I had some monogramed stamps made at Zazzle.com…I can’t wait to use them on the envelopes.
