Lights up!!
« on: December 07, 2018, 11:01:47 pm »
I finally got all my Christmas decorations put up on the outside. Lucky for me, the ones across the top of the house were put up the week before Thanksgiving so they were ready to be lighted when the time came.  The rest, I started them on Monday. Could only do a little bit each day but I finally got everything done but the tree.  I did that part today.  Now I can sit back and just enjoy them!  The first one is the front of the place and the second one shows the porch.   :yeah: :xmas03:



It's hard to capture the colors at night and they don't show up very well in the daytime!  They are very bright - maybe Santa will find me this year!!   :xmas00: :xmas00:

Thank you all!!   I don't really get to see the decorations because I have to go outside after dark!  I do take a drive around the park maybe twice later in the month to check out all the decorations.  I mostly do my decorations for my neighbors.  We are all seniors in this park and so many are people alone, like me.  We spend Christmas by ourselves.  It can make some people feel pretty down but they all love the pretty lights. 

The hardest part is setting up the electrical layout.  Some things won't plug into another, some are two prong, some are 3 prong and you have to make sure they are all for outdoors.  Then, you also have to make sure that they are not all on the same circuit. It's worth it though.   I see I should have pulled the blinds down before taking the picture!  This is the first time I've used a net light set on the windows.  Is a lot easier than trying to string strands!   I love the holidays!!   :xmas46: :xmas53: :xmas00:
