'Tis the Season

I just wanted to post some pictures of our neighbor's yard. They have decorated for every holiday since we have been back. They had several inflatables in their yard for 4th of July and halloween, but their Christmas decorations take the cake. They have 12 inflatable decorations in their yard. Six of them are quite large and the other six are smaller. One is a snow globe with actual white stuff blowing around in it. You can see it to the left of the archway over the sidewalk. They also have a blow-up carousel that actually turns...on the right of the archway. Not seen in this picture is a huge santa Mickey Mouse, and you can barely make out a Christmas tree, and a snowman on the far right. The smaller inflatables are Christmas ornaments and Winnie the Pooh characters. There are lights on their house, a candy cane lined sidewalk, a flag on the side of the fence, a santa hanging from their garage roof, and signs that say "Reindeer Crossing" and "Santa stops here." Incredible. These inflatable things must be fairly new; because, I don't remember them from before we went overseas. And they aren't cheap either. To decorate this yard this much must have cost a small fortune! I took these pictures at night so you could see the lights, but during the day the inflatables really show up.

I guess there is so much electricity going through their yard they had to put up the following sign!

This is hysterical. We have a home in our neighborhood that is just like this. Last year, at one count, they had 15 inflatables in their yard at Christmas...in a smallish yard! There was scarcely room to walk between them. The strange thing is that they kept taking them down and putting them up. They'd rearrange them, and then take them all down. Then a few days later they'd all appear again. Wacky.

Amazing how much money one will spend as far as decorations; and if I HAD that extra money, I don't think I'd spend it on some giant inflatables!!
