lets see your decorations!!!.. this photo was from last year but I will post some updates as we go along this year

we would appreciate anyone who has a few mins to vote for us on tacky light tour.. the site can be slow at times.. you have to create a user name and then click this link.. under each category if you click the drop down box .. and I usually just keep clicking the "3" key.. until our address pops up 36 Warren Trail then click nominate .. I know it's not a quick process but we do appreciate any votes

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Whoa! Blinking How long does the changeover from Halloween to Christmas take you guys? How much more do you have to do to be "finished"?

barb we are normally done already.. we held off a few weeks because we thought the town was going to take down the tree.. and now fighting with them on who's property it is.. which it is not mine.. but we can tear down halloween pretty quick.. it's the set up that takes longer

So, you're never ACTUALLY "finished" are you? Hilarious!

Edited to add: we cross-posted there, so my post doesn't make sense in light of your reply.

OUCH - sorry about the kerfuffle with that tree! Has it been resolved yet? I would think you guys have it down to a system at this point, and I'm sure setting up is pretty time-consuming. I know how long it takes me just to decorate one Christmas tree, for heaven's sake!!!

no we are not.. we just keep going until it's close.. and then quit... we have so much stuff we could put out.. somethings we decided not to this year due to time.. but I have lights for a bigger "tree" for next year that I bought in July.. discounted of course.. we like to change things up now and then so it doesn't look like the same old thing to people living here and seeing it year after year.. and some things did get destroyed last year with the huge pile of snow on top of it.. our Merry Christmas sign is illegible right now.. last year the melt pulled it down to the ground and beat the heck out of it.. we sat and fixed the broken lights.. and it burned out again.. time for me to rip it up and put new strings in it.. always a joy.. NOT.. but I will do it anyway

figured you guys might enjoy this... my neighbor was throwing away his tomato cages... of course I took them when he offered.. tied the legs.. ran some electrical tape in the dead spots so the wrapping won't sink in.. wrapped two strands of green garland from the dollar store.. wrap with lights.. instant tree!!

Looks great Allison don't know how you find the time or have the patients to do that. Between Christmas and Halloween where do you store all the stuff?
