Exterior Illumination

Mr. H loves Christmas. It's by far his favorite holiday. Not because of the presents (but those don't hurt) but because of the decorations. He loves lights and trees and sparkly shiny things. And "the bigger the better" is his motto when it comes to decorating the house. If he could get away with decorating our home like the Griswold house he would.

I love you hon, and I think you did a wonderful job!

After:

I love this little guy. We got him our first Christmas in this house. We didn't have any other decorations and we picked him up on a whim right before Christmas for 50% off at Albertson's. He's just so cute!



A closer look...

Happy Holidays!

I love that clip! Always makes me laugh and has been a favorite movie of mine for a long time :)

Your house looks so pretty and the little penguin is adorable. Glad you are able to embrace the season and do something that makes you smile :)

What a cute house (love the red door) and sweet decorations! The little snowman is so cute. I'm a huge Christmas fan too. I used to joke with my hubby and say that Santa will be able to see our house from the North Pole when we finally get a place of our own to light up :P.

Your house is so adorable! I love the front door.

And while Christmas is not my favorite holiday I do love the lights.

Way to go Mr. H

I think the lights are very tasteful. I hope to someday put lights outside our house.

Your house is beautiful! I wanted to tell you I used your recipe for chocolate chewies for my cookie swap this year. They were a huge hit! Have a great holiday:)
