I think I heard the nuclear generator kicking in down at the power plant...

The inside is glowing... And now, so is the outside! Randey and Jake worked hard to get the lights up and here's the first pictures of the season to show their efforts. If I know Randey (and I'm pretty sure I do), he'll continue adding more and more until either all our breakers blow or Al Gore sends a team of Nobel Nitwits down here to explain to us just how all our Christmas spirit is bad for the country's energy future. (And then Randey will light him up and he'll be a decoration, too.)
(You can see the "BELIEVE" sign over the front door that I mentioned a few posts ago if you click on the pictures.) These next two pictures were shots of the Christmas tree taken from outside the front window. You can just imagine a crackling fire and a mug of hot cocoa waiting for you in this house, can't you? (Well, imagine all you want, but you wouldn't have found a fire here last night...all those Christmas lights inside tend to warm up the place quite enough, thankyouverymuch! lol).
Now this last picture is probably one of my favorites. Look in that right hand window. Little Sydney the Wonder Dog was staring out at us as we were clicking the pictures. Gosh, I love that little guy. Me. A Chihuahua lover. I bet no one who knows me ever saw that coming. Tune in tomorrow. I plan on introducing you to a very special person in our lives. Just you wait and see who it is! And I also hope to get a few minutes to tell you about the symphony. It was magnificent. I almost cried, it was so beautiful. Yes....I'll have to go into more detail tomorrow because that was a night worth remembering. Until then...
Merry Christmas, Ya'll!
