Update for Nov 30-Dec 4
I wrote this post 3 years ago for a blog we were doing at Horizon Elementary. I reread it this weekend after finding an awesome solution to putting up Christmas lights.
Hope you enjoy!
My family and I have lived in our house for 3 years now and each year I’m expected to put up lights outside during the holiday season.
I don’t really have a say. When I complain, I get a reminder that our daughters (the bosses) won’t be young much longer. After my guilt trip, I usually get going.
That wasn’t going to cut it this year.

|Our house: fail.|
I guess somethings are funnier when your older.
