My World: Decked Out for Christmas

The front of our house in the early evening. December 10, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

Our house is now decked out for Christmas.  Not only on the inside but on the outside.  As night falls the lights come on.  The picture above is taken from the road in front of the house just after the sun went down.

Betsy is the designer of our decorations.  My job is to carry things and put them where she tells me to, and to reach the high places she can’t reach.  She’s added the wreaths in the front over the past three years.

Our Christmas tree from the back yard. December 9, 2010.

Our house opens to the back, where we have three sliding glass doors opening to a large deck.  Betsy has decorated the deck with lighted garlands (you can see some of them in the picture above).  We put the tree in front of one of the doors and keep the curtains open so that  the tree can be seen from the back yard.

Pictures don’t do justice to the way the house looks.  You’ll just have to stop by to see how it looks in person.

    Your Christmas tree looks gorgeous from the back yard! I hope to photograph our house from the street one day, as well as other outdoor decorations around town. An evening that isn’t bitter cold would be nice!

    I love looking at people’s trees from the outside, looking in their windows or doors. And yours is spectacular! The lights on the wreaths are a really nice touch too, they really make the house sparkle!
