I have a feeling I’m totally screwing this up, but this is our house this Christmas. We used to have a reindeer family and light up the lilac bushes in three colors and all the trees in front in pretty white lights and we have three small lit trees and a lollipop row. It was pretty, really, but tons of work.

This is what we did this year. It looks nice and not too much work.

I am off to visit my mom for Christmas and make the pies. God bless us, every one!
