My Griswold Christmas

Remember Clark Griswold from National Lampoons Christmas Vacation?  
Is your house on fire, Clark?

No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights. 
So yes, we decorated last Friday. What I have neglected to tell you is that after I had placed lights around the bases of a dozen or so trees around my yard with a few hundred feet of extension cords, a co-worker gave me a bunch of her no longer but slightly used outdoor decorations - complete with a pair of deer, a tree, a sleigh and a santa set. Monkey and I put them all out on Thanksgiving morning and we turned them on that night, then we took a cruise through the neighborhood to see what our competition looked like. When we got back and rounded the corner, I laughed and I laughed and I laughed - our little house was glowing like New York City! I'm still giggling, as you can hear in the video below. 

A wreath that Monkey made me in school years ago still hangs proudly

Please laugh with me, it's funny.
