Well, I have seen it already. Someone in our neighborhood has a full yard display up and running. I'll see if I can get a few pics. It does look great!

That's something we need ot work on. Don't get me wrong I do have a few lighted things in the windows but I don't actually have any outdoor lights :oops: Personally I am more of a indoor decorator when it comes to holidays but my partner and i were just talking about this last night. Trying to figure how we would decorate the house outside. A new holiday project!!! Exciting

We put up our outside lights before we left for Thanksgiving...we were the only ones in the neighborhood. Then when we got home...TONS of lights everywhere!! I swear some of these people make me look completely sane! hah hah. There is this one house you would not believe! They somehow got decorations up on their roof (like 35 feet up there). I have NO idea how they did it, but it's awesome!



I'll try to get some pictures.

Ok so I'm not finished decorating yet, BUT...

Here's my house:

Here's a few neighbor's houses.

These guys have two trees! (sorry it's blurry)

Neighbor two doors down (she's really cool).

Image



Neighbor across the street (also cool).

I don't know these guys but they live at the end of the street.

I'll try to post more pictures asap...we added a couple of things and I fixed the swags (they were separated a bit as you can see from the pictures).



Plus I need to go take a picture of the crazy house.

Here's what we've got so far...I can't seem to get a handle on how to take digital pics without blurring, but you 'll get the general idea.

All the pictures are awesome!



Evil Mel and Hooch-your houses are both so neat and tidy looking- very well done.



I am so glad to see more people getting in to the spirit of things.



I posted a picture of the outside of my house on here somewhere, but I can't remember where.

Hooch I love those swag kind of things in the windows instead of wreaths. I mean...I like wreaths too but it seems like everyone has wreaths.



Awesome!

I hope we can get a lot more pictures next year. I really enjoy them. I'd post, but I don't have a digital camera.
