Christmas Display - Ongoing but here's a Start


My Goodness Dave, This is SSOOO much more than I expected to see. It's so wonderful! I love the way the snowmen and Santa are looking out the window, that's awesome!

Boy has this gotten my Christmas juices flowing.

The manger on the roof is Perfect. I love it!

Just a super great job..................

I don't have any traffic jams in front of the house
Maybe once I start some animation & broadcast music
I do see a few cars here & there...usually only 1-3 at a time
I can usually tell as they get past the house & turn around
I'm working on the Christmas tree now - fake this year
I have 7 fake trees, the pre-lit white one goes in the addition front window
6 are all the same - usually $40 each, bought one year at 90% off - $4 each



A 2nd fake one will go in the back arch window (maybe next year)
3rd fake one in the new dining room bay window (setting up now)
The real tree - when we buy one (not this year) - will go in the sunroom - I think

Jeez, that is an elaborate setup! Where the heck do you store all that stuff after Christmas, lol? I hope to have a nice setup built up over the years, but for now, I'll just have to live with a few lights. I haven't even had the time to put up those yet...

OMG if I lived in a warmer climate I'd have a ton of stuff out
The addition you see in the pics - white housewrap - I just built
24x36 garage, 19x24 walk-up attic for storage
Stuff is stored everywhere

Scuba Dave, at the rate you're going, you can apply for a permit to build your next shed or barn in the yard. Work to commence in the Spring of 2010. Meanwhile sit back and enjoy!

NOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spark Plug, He has to finish the siding first! I'm looking forward to that, and it starts in the spring.

I do agree though, he needs a 40x40 Storage Building for his decorations!

Are we into 2011 yet?

I'd say that was about right, unless you know of an airplane hanger somewhere. hehehe

I currently have one small 10x12 shed, one 12x32 garage, and one rental storage unit, 10x16 and it's not enough.

Like I always say, YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH STORAGE SPACE.

Period!

PS Now if I happen to get my children to remove their junk, THEN I could sell the other storage and live happily ever after.

PSS AND that is exactly why the entire upstairs of my small home will be for storage. Thank the Lord!

Dave I forgot to mention that the 40 x 40 would JUST HAVE TO BE a 2 story building, nothing else would do.

Maybe with a small, OR LARGE, Game Room. A Home Theatre, and maybe a fully loaded Snack Bar! A Spa, a oops, maybe it should be a 100 x 100?

Now that's what I call a perfect storage area!

Last thing I think.....It's about a 3' wreath
I redid the lights, used to be mini's
I switched it over to LED since the mini's were burnt out

I changed the timers to go on around 4p & off around 11p

Waiting for the snowstorm to hit...anywhere from 10" to 2 feet
I'll take pics again after the snow

We got 2 feet of snow here. 17 degrees outside, and they had to close almost everything, even after preparing a few days in advance.

The bypasses are open on the beltway, because they salted them beforehand, but the snow is so high in some places, people still can't use them.!!!!

Your wreath looks great, and I really like the white trees.

Everything is covered.....12" so far another 3-6" predicted
And my sons sled is under the snow somewhere
I'll have to uncover the inflatables before 4 pm
I guess I'll be doing some shoveling
Then take some pics
At least its on a weekend & everything can be cleaned up before Monday
I'm sure the stores at the Malls are not happy

MAN DOWN !!

5' Santa on the roof tipped over
I'm going to have to go up & put him back up
Luckily there is a door from the new addition attic onto the old roof
And the old roof is not steep

I'll need to add some weight to his base for next year
