SOMEONE REALLY LOVES CHRISTMAS

 
Making a trip to Trader Joe's today, I passed this house.  I did a double take, and said I would stop on my way home and get some pictures.


 
It's a small house but the yard is completely filled with Christmas Characters.  Some are the blow up type, other's huge stuffed animals.  Candy canes and Disney friends.
 
 
A manger scene in on the roof, and a sign that tells us "JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON"  Ice Igloo and slides.  It sure looks like a fun place for all these toys.   

 
With all the grief I've been feeling with the horrible tragedy at the Elementary School, I needed to see something happy, and take a deep breath, and say another prayer for families that won't feel happy for a long time to come and have to cope with this at Christmas Time.

  1. There is a house decorated just like that across from our dentist's office. Good to smile before you have your teeth cleaned.

    1. It would be interestinga to drive by at night and see if they are all lit up...Do you have a "Christmas Tree Lane" in your town?

    2. We have a few that go all out, but still not anything like this house here! haha. But there is an entire neighborhood that really gets into the spirit just north of us and it's a very popular Christmas tradition of most in the area to take a drive through and see all the decorations.

    3. When we lived up North, there was a wonderful Culdesac that every house was decorated lovely, and folks from the homes passing out candy canes, or cookies..It was fun. Haven't found that down here.

  3. We have some pretty extensive displays nearby. I always have to smile when I see a yard full of those things. Where do they store them all year long?

    Such a very sad time right now and nothing will take the pain away ever. Last year was a sad December here, but this so very much sadder.

  5. Thanks for sharing this joyful scene. I think each of us shares in the sorrow of those who have suffered the unimaginable. We go on, but we never forget. Bless you and your husband this day.
