A nice group picture.
We have been fighting the war of the Christmas lights. Our yard man put them up for us and everything is on a timer so that I don't have to go out and plug them in every night and unplug them in the morning. The first night they blew the breaker after they had been on for a few minutes so that was the end of that. The next day Dad went out and plugged some things into other spaces so that it was spread out a bit and that took care of that. The yard man came back to check on them the next night and tried to get the timers closer together so tonight some things came on and others didn't so Dad went out and unplugged everything until it was dark and then plugged them all in again. I guess the timers need a bit more tweaking. Sigh.......
I now have both Christmas trees up in the house so hopefully the kids will help me decorate them this weekend. We have fake trees as we are all allergic to the real ones. I still need to get my villages set up so I think I will make use of those nice strong energetic legs on T and D to help me carry them all up from the basement. :o)
It's now Saturday night. We had our office Christmas party this afternoon and had a really nice time. I have lots of pictures but think I will put them in my next post as this is getting rather long. We had our first major snow storm today and it looks like a winter wonderland outside. I wish I had counted the number of cars that went by tonight looking at all the lights in the neighborhood. Even a Hummer Limo went by! Pretty big stuff for our small little town! Don't see that every day! The picture at the beginning of this is from the party today overlooking the golf course. It was so pretty with the snow softly coming down. There is something so exciting about that first snowfall. :o) This last pic is of one of the gingerbread men that T and D decorated at the party. The kids LOVED doing this!
