Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Well, I just finished putting up our icicle lights in the front yard.  I strung them on the deck and I think it looks rather lovely, if I don't say so myself!  And I am mighty pleased with my planning this year....I opened up the Christmas lights box and found a package of new icicle lights and new outdoor extension cords.  Apparently I DID hit up the after Christmas outdoor lighting sale last year!  So, it all worked out splendidly.  Eric also informs me that I bought a timer for them too...have yet to find that tho.  Hmm.  I also got out my little potted Christmas trees ("my trees!" - Chevy Chase.  That is for Susan, who was amused by my quest to find them at a good price last year.  I came home defeated by all the Black Friday nutjobs who had snatched them out from under me and exclaimed, "my trees!"  Ok, probably not funny to all the other readers, but I know she will appreciate it.  I did end up getting them after Christmas for less than 20 bucks - score!).  We decided that we are going to try them out inside and see how we like them.  So far, I like them.  Dylan came down from his nap and said, "Oh wow!  Christmas!  Look at the lights!"  

Next week, the main event begins....the rest of the Christmas decor.  Eric happily got it all down off the shelves in the garage for me, so its all ready to go!  Its going to be glorious!

Thats it for now from us!
