It's beginning to look ... a little bit ... like Christmas

We've had some gorgeous weather here, so we took advantage of the near 70-degree temps and sent the men outside to start putting the Christmas lights up on the roof.

A neighbor is going to have a fantastic light display synchronized to Christmas music. Ours isn't going to be as fancy or 'high-tech' as theirs (he's a computer whiz), but we do have a musical kit that will synchronize our lights to some holiday melodies.

As a kid, and even as an adult, there was a particular street in a nearby town that went all out. It was labeled as "Candy Cane Lane". A few years ago, there were no lights. It was heard through the grapevine that the residents of the "main" house got divorced. We haven't been able to find an area quite as good yet (on that particular street, most of the other homeowners had beautiful light displays as well).

Perhaps OUR street can be the next "Candy Cane Lane". The idea is on a few residents minds and would be great if we do a fundraiser like we are in the process of discussing.

Have I mentioned before how our community rocks???
