The lights are on the house and I love them. I think I've posted these pictures smaller to see if it would help in loading them quicker, but I much prefer them a bit larger. I'll work on it. It was a foggy night tonight when I went out to take pictures. I left the house armed with camera and tripod (since I knew I wouldn't get a good shot without it.). I'm wishing at this moment that I had a wide angle lens (I may borrow one). I have a month to keep working to get a great shot.With Joy UNquenchable,
This is our friend Christopher....he was our lifesaver...not only is he not afraid of heights, or steep roof lines but he's 6'1 and reaches things alot better than hubby and I at our 5'6, 5'7 heights. He climbed up on the roof today to put the final lights on the peaks, which made all the difference. We love him!! And his new wife (he was married 2 weeks ago)
The fog was really coming out when I went out to take the pictures. I stood on the road hoping no cars would come (we live right on a little corner and no one would see me from where I was standing). We plan to put lights on the other tree (to the left). We bought some of the new LED lights. Very nice, but spendy and we only had enough colored ones for one tree. We got them the day after Thanksgiving when they were 50% off. We'll use old colored ones for the other tree. Next year we want to get some icicle lights to go behind the other ones. I went to look at them today and they were a little more than we wanted to spend right now.
A different angle.
I'm so thankful to be in our home. What a wonderful feeling it is. I still haven't decorated the inside of the house. Hopefully I'll have some decorated by the time my pampered chef party tomorrow night. With the consultant we're making artichoke dip, but I'm also going to make a pasta salad, pumpkin bread and have some veggies and dip.
It's off to get the girls school together. We really haven't done it for two weeks since we were moving and I just wasn't organized enough...I know....my bad! We'll catch up somehow!
