Lights, Camera.... Christmas!!





One of my favorite "anticipation" activities for Christmas is getting the house decked out in Christmas lights- technically, having Mike put the lights up since 1)It's so darn cold outside, B)He really enjoys outdoor "putzing" as I call it, 3)I sadly lack the nimble footing of a mountain goat for roof climbing... not that I've ever seen a mountain goat on my roof. However. I focus on my indoor tasks of feeding, beveraging, and keeping Mike warmed up while he lights our house outside. Eileigh has been cutting her fourth upper tooth (sixth total) and she has been quite whiny (ALmost worse than fussy) and I suspect Mike enjoyed the outside escape a little more than usual. Yesterday evening he finished with grand results! There are only a couple sections that need bulb replacements, which is great- although we do effectively project the appearance of WT until those can be replaced. (Definition of WT: the politically correct slang for the politically incorrect term of White Trash. Also referred to as Dub-T). Hopefully the lights will be fixed sooner than later... especially with the "new" truck that we just bought... pics and story to come...

You keep gettin' better and better at story telling. Boone and I are definitely coming over when he gets old enough- screw the library lady.

The lights look great! I'm sad that since we're in San Diego until next weekend we don't get to decorate our house for Christmas this year. I'll just be appreciating everyone else's festiveness!
