Christmas Home…

I know its still November and that Thanksgiving is  only a few days away….and your saying

                “Lois stop rushing it!”

                                           …………sigh………

                                                                     BUT I CAN’T HELP IT!      

                                                                                             I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!!

My husband whom I’ve been married to for forty years, is on vacation this week, yup a whole week, 7 days, 168 hours, 10,080 minutes…….

so I need to have an – hour by hour….no slacking this week……. itinerary!

we are in the depths of

“Operation: SANTA“!

I had everything organized  and ready……and then……the unthinkable happened….the husband said………

wait for it…….

“Are you changing any of the outdoor decorations this year”?………WHAT!

OMG! If he asked –  it must be time to do – something different…..but …… what?

so now I am disparately flipping thru magazines, checking out everything online……spying on neighbors…..especially when their garage doors are up……

and Nothing!………

So I need your help…..I found some beautiful photo’s of Colonials dressed for the holidays……….what do you think? Any suggestions? Idea’s?

I usually put my candles in all the windows and a tree in my dining room window…my big tree goes in the center hall and a “Grandma’s Tree” goes in the family room (That one holds all the ornaments from the grandchildren)…….and the dining room gets a different theme every year….but outside?……

HELP!

Here is what I found so far…I love this! But the husband nearly fell off the couch when I showed it to him!

The husband then reminded me we don’t live on “South Fork”!

He also reminded me we would have Three Stories to climb in order to do the roof edge lighting! (we?)

xmas 4

He then pointed out, with a sense of relief, that we don’t have trees in the front of the house….. hmmm, wasn’t this his idea?

Then I saw interior Christmas! and  got totally off track…….

uh oh…….here comes the husband……he doesn’t look happy…….I have a feeling he found the ten- foot inflatable Santa in the back of the Jeep and the live reindeer in the barn…….

“Oh, please don’t look in the back of the truck!”

Too late……

  1. Ok, so what ever happened to a week vacation being a time to rest and enjoy not having to get up early in the morning. Oh Mr. husband the builder you have my sympathy. Ok Lois, give the man a break!!. I do love your site.

    • The husband needs to keep busy! Had he followed thru on his own “To Do List” he made in August he would have been finished by Labor Day! and to all Husband’s out there NEVER ask your wife if something as important as outdoor holiday decorating needs to be changed….you just jumped head-first into a bottomless pit!

  2. I love all the pictures. ..I think you should do the whole house in lights Omg that would be beautiful!!!! Get to work dad!!!!
