Our Christmas Lights!

For those of you who know Tyler well, you know he is a Christmas fanatic or maybe just a Clark Griswold's wanna-be. Tyler decks out our house each year with lights. When we moved into this house on December 11, 2006 he was already putting up lights on December 13th. No, the boxes weren't unpacked, but we had lights put up on our house.

The number of lights seems to grow every Christmas. Now he does have an accomplice...Fr. Meyer, of course. These two guys spent lots of hours last week engineering our lights. Yes, sketches were involved. They finagled it so that all the lights are perfectly straight. You can't miss Santa and his reindeer. The picture definitely doesn't do it justice. Fr. Meyer made the set last year for Lily's first Christmas. He sketched them, cut them and painted them. They really are gorgeous and a true piece of art. Be sure to drive by if you are in town. You'll be able to see our house from three streets away!

You can kinda see Lily's hand in this picture. She waves to Santa and his reindeer each time we leave the house!
