for the first time we have put lights up on our house for the christmas season and i am thrilled! daron's parents stayed with us this week to meet Carter and my father in law put lights up for hours. he was so sweet to take the time to put them up for us. i am so grateful. sometimes i will open our front door just so i can take a peek. i can't believe how much joy they bring! it's a really fast way to bring so much christmas cheer into our home. not the most "practical way" (as daron informed me more than a few times) since we won't actually be here for christmas but it sure is a fun way! ;)
if i had it my way we would have lights covering every spec of our house, lawn, trees, bushes, driveway... any place i could have lights i would have them. i tell daron all the time.. "one day. one day our house will be covered in lights during the christmas season." (i really hope that dream comes true)
thank you Steve, for giving us a wonderful start to this christmas season!
