The new edition: The Snowman
Lights and Rain
Our outdoor Christmas lights, this year.
Since two weeks, we have the outdoor Christmas lights up in the frontyard. Finally I come around to post some photos of them. This year, we’ve got a new edition: I love the snowman with its blinking star. All we need now, is some snow to get more into the season’s mood. But it is too warm. So, we have to deal with the cool rain.
This year, I wanted an elegant tree in the front room. Since the girls wanted a real tree, I’ve got some Scandinavian straw ornaments in October. The tree looks very pretty with the red, silver and green balls and the white light. It’s lovely and peaceful with the crackling fire in the background. I can’t wait for the arrival of Yuletide/Christmas.
Angels & crackling fires will be a welcome sight for the next five weeks.
The ornaments look so pretty on the Fraser Fir.
‘Tis the season to be jolly
Kevin worked on installing the Christmas lights around the house, today. Sara sat on the roof and helped him with the extension cords. Once the first chains of lights were installed, Kevin, Katelynn, Sara and I shopped for a Fraser Fir tree. We also got some more Christmas decorations. Kevin will finish setting up the lights in the frontyard, tomorrow.
Sara helps day with the extension cords and enjoys the view on top of the roof.
Kevin installs traditionally the Christmas lights on the roof on Black Friday.
Kevin and Sara might get some help from a Black Vulture. 😉
More photo of Christmas lights will follow as soon as everything is installed and set up.
It’s this time of year, again. Traditionally, the lights and the Christmas tree go up in and around our house the day after Thanksgiving. Kevin works on the Christmas lights going along the roof, and Katelynn works on setting up the Christmas tree in the front room. Sara helps both of them. And I make sure, everything goes to the right spot. And of course, Joshua is the inspector to make sure, Daddy installed the light as they supposed to be.
Kevin starts installing the lights at the house.
Some more lights will go up on the side of the house.
Katelynn is in charge of the Christmas tree decoration.

… and this evening I had the chance to photograph the Christmas lights at dusk. Sara had a friend over. And they were dancing around our little “Charlie Brown Tree”.
I love the icicle lights.
Sara loves the Christmas lights. Snoopy has a little “hick up”, that needs to be fixed.
