I recently put up some Christmas lights in our front yard. I was quite proud of myself. This was by far the most lights outside that I'd ever done. I wrapped white lights up our swirling topiary bush, then multi colored lights on the shrub next to it and continued to alternate white and multi-colored lights along the bushes that line the front of our house. There are 5 decorated bushes in all and a peace sign I made last year hanging on the house. We are one of many houses in our new neighborhood that decorate with lights at Christmas. I was excited to show Abby our display.
She was fresh out of the bath with her pj's on, so I bundled her up in her coat and a hat and we went out to see the lights.
She looked at the neighbors houses, then ours and said simply,
Then she walked back up the driveway and into the house.
Apparently my light show needs work. Clark Griswold I am not.
