Outside Lights and Days 10, 11, and 12

This is what our house looks like this year.  Do you decorate with lights outside?  The outside is hubbies favorite part.  He starts pulling decorations and lights out at the beginning of November. 

This year he did a little at a time.  He started with the highest lights and worked his way down. 

Last year he made this sign.  When he was done he made one for our church.  I love it so much!

We have deer tucked in here and there

My favorite part is how he lines the driveway with lights!

This year we decorated the side of the house

I say "we" only because he will occasionally ask where to put something, lol.  And I DO hand him things, fetch him things, or throw something up on the roof every now and then.  He helps me in the house by moving furniture, lifting heavy things, and saying, "ya, that looks good there".  We are a good pair that way, lol!

Days 10, 11, and 12 matchbox

My number 10 matchbox comes from Linda of Country Pickins.  Make sure to visit Linda's blog and sit by her roaring fire!  It is so cute!  Inside is an adorable little hat ornament : )

Number 11 comes from Genie of Buttons For Baga.  Her blog is SO sweet.  Inside the matchbox is a darling shirt pin.  Ahhhhh

Number 12 comes from Amy of Papertrails By a Paper Lover.  Amy is very creative and does a lot of crafting with paper.  Be sure to check out her blog.  Inside is a ornament.  I was sure to hang it on the tree.

Our church bizarre is tomorrow and I knew I would be busy all day so I went ahead and did tomorrows matchbox.  These days are sure getting busy!! 

Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!!!!!!

You and your husband are just adorable. I don't know what is nicer... the decorations or your teamwork! Both are just lovely.
