Ok everyone.... Christmas is offically in the air. It's time to get that tree put up and get the yard decorated.

 

And guess what ???..... We want to see your decorations :looking:

 

Donna and I got our tree up tonight. We decided to leave the old green tree in the box this year and went out and bought a new snow white tree at Menards. Then instead of the traditional white or muti-colored lights, we went with blue LED lights. Next we bought a couple spools of silver and blue snow flaked ribbon, silver and blue small and large bulbs, and silver and blue ribbons. The tree turned out really nice, but the blue LED's make it a real pain to get a good picture of it, They tend to turn the picture into a giant blue blob :yes:. I set the camera to the fireworks setting and set it on the tripod and finally got a fairly desent shot.

 

My son and I will work on the house decorations tomorrow. So I'll get shots of it and post them tomorrow evening. Sometimes I tend to go overboard outside, and I don;t see this year being any different. :rofl:

 

Here's our tree this year....

Ebenezer "Digger" Scrooge is a cold-hearted, tight fisted, selfish man, who despises Christmas and all things which engender happiness... :whip:

 

I tried the scrooge approach one time.... but my kids and Donna let me know how wrong it was to ruin everyone elses Christmas spirit with a cold hearted attitude....:yes:

 

Just sayin :baffled:

Its fake snow... we stood outside for a couple hours shaving ice cubes to give it that genuine look :rofl:

 

Actually I got a ton more stuff tonight, so we (my son and I) changed the yard again. we built a runway out of white chaser lights and sat santa and his plane on the runway.. I also built the LED lights and connected them to my radio with an outside speaker so the lights flash to the music that is being played. I also got a projector that is projecting hundreds of christmas bulbs down the side of the house.... and the list goes on....

 

Ill get updated pics tomorrow night.

 

Oh.... also...... I was trying to string lights in the trees,,,,,, I get my 20' extension ladder off of my truck and laid it against what I thought was a large branch. As I was at the top rung, leaning back, trying to get the lights higher... the branch broke. :doh: My ladder kicked sideways and about catapulted me off of it. One leg of the ladder was on the ground, the other was swaying about 12 inches in the air :rofl:. If that was enough of a position to be in, the tree decided to add injury to insult as I tried to climb down the swaying ladder. Half way down, a small little twig branch got caught on my coat. Seeings how I was moving slowly and didnt dare try to throw off my, or the ladders balance off, I decided to just keep moving and let the twig pop off my coat. Now.... keep in mind, it was 5 degrees without wind chill, so my nose was cold as a witches nipple. I took one more step down and that little twig let loose from my coat, swung around, and smacked me right on the bridge of my nose...... this is pretty much what I must have looked like when it struck :surprised:.

 

Then I thought everything was finally going good until I realised my glasses were missing off of my face. Donna found them laying in the yard.... one lense was popped out and the frames were as crooked as a new york attorney. I poppped the lense back in, gave the frames a good hard twist, and I can see again.:looking::yes:

 

Anyway, I got down safe, minus the nasal lashing but I did feel very Clark Griswald tonight....:rofl:
