Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
We live next to the self-proclaimed Griswolds! haha! Ryan and Christina decorate their home with an over the top Christmas light display every year.
It's really beautiful!
During the daytime though, its not as attractive. :)
But at night it's really fun! Every year Ryan gets more decorations and the display expands. They used to live in the house we live until we bought it. They split off the acreage and kept 20 acres to the west of us. They built this garage/apartment and are living there until they build their dream home to the south.
Here's a picture of our home back in 2012 when Ryan and Christina lived there. They used to decorate the home with tons of lights and even let folks drive through the circular drive where they would hear Christmas music and would receive a candy cane.
This was a tradition for a lot of folks from town, but we did not keep up the tradition.
The first Christmas we were in our new home we only had white lights across the front of the home and a white cross. We heard that one little boy cried when his Dad drove him out to see the traditional display and the gate was locked and it was one little strand of white lights. Poor guy, we didn't mean to disappoint him, but we are just not into the big lights!
The good news is that they just have to drive a little further west and they will see the Griswold's oops, I mean Ryan and Christina's display!
