It's Christmas-time and one of my favorite things to do around the house is put up Christmas lights! Theresa let me buy a few more lights to add to what I already had from last year. I spent a few hours each day after we got back from Michigan putting them up.
I started with the icicles all around the roof line.
I also wrapped the palm tree trunks.
All the windows were outlined with lights.
Which required a little bit of creative balancing to get around the plants in front yard.
This year I put 600 lights around the trunk and branches of one of our trees.
And that also required a little bit of creative balancing to get it around the ends of the branches.
I think it turned out really well this year! When you're driving down the street, our house really stands out!
Here's the tree I was all crazy climbing to get the lights as high as I could.
Brand new this year are the lights up in the fronds of the palm trees. Last year I just did the trunks. I think it looks awesome with everything lit up now. Those fronds at the very top were a little tough to get to.
The front door and the garage look great too.
