Decorations..

Yesterday the kids and I hd a relaxing Sunday making paper Christmas Decorations. Lanterns, stars and nativity scenes were colourfuly coloured in.... mouthful of a sentence I know!
What sparked this artistic flare was a man down the road here who has begun the arduous task of putting up umpteen decorations with lights and moving things that delight children. He was up the ladder putting an angel in his front tree. Soon, his bay window of the main bedroom will have a snowing scene complete with Christmas Train and presents and..you guessed it, a tree!
I think he won an award last year through the energy company, well, I am guessing he will need it again this year with the amount of things he is putting up! There is also a plasma TV outside his garage and chairs set up with Christmas Movies for young and old to watch.
NO..he hasn't light up yet, he will wait until Dec 1st to do that...and I am guessing we will have to be there to take photos and film and watch a flick..... I may take popcorn this year!

You really do have to admire folks like that, gosh if he doesn't win it will cost him a fortune....
We had a whole street that deco-ed up for Xmas, but because of energy cost their passing on it this year........

Oh how wonderful. When we first moved to our house a lot of the locals went the whole hog with the lights, lately there seem to be less and less! Im thinking its the big rise in energy costs that have spoiled it.

I love home made decorations, Dinoboy has been madly making them as well.

I love all the work others do to make Christmas time so beautiful. I'm not quite ready to decorate yet. when i do it will be a wreath on the door and a tree in the window.

I'll be putting up my little tree 12 days before Xmas this year... I didn't even put mine up last year! i guess seeing it here (while i'm living on my own etc etc) kinda makes me sad. Anyways... not to worry.

People in my parents' town go all out with Chrissy decorations. Some of them are really fantastic. Every time we visit them at that time of year, dad insists on driving us around and showing us all the good houses!! lol
