Wednesday Christmas Lights

With Thanksgiving and family in town, there hasn’t been much going on in the shop, but we’ve been putting up the Christmas lights and decorations. I’ve been doing the outside lights and so far have about half of what I want to put up setup.

The courtyard display.
Stagecoach hauling a snowman.

My cellphone camera doesn’t show it very well and of course it looks better in person.

The deer on the lawn.

I am putting lights around the roof, but didn’t order enough lights. My son-in-law came by last weekend with our grandson and put up all the hooks we needed along with one string of lights. I seriously miscalculated the amount of lights and have ordered three more 100′ strings to finish the job. There are a couple of trees that I’ll be adding lights too as well. Turns out to be more work than I thought.

That’s it for this week. If you need me, I’ll be out on the ladder putting up more lights.

  2. Your lights look great already! As far as we’re concerned, there’s no such thing as “enough lights”. πŸ˜‰

  12. It looks festive and beautiful! It always seems to take a couple of years to get things how we like them in a new home. Your home is wonderful!

    • This will be our second Christmas in this home and I think we’re getting close to what we want, but next year might include some homemade computer controlled lighting … just cause I don’t have enough to do … πŸ˜‰


  13. Looking great Andrew πŸ™‚
