This year, we never got around to putting up lights on our house for 3 reasons:
1. We have a pretty tall house and don't own a ladder
2. I've had a hard time really getting excited for Christmas this year ( I still can't believe that it's just over a week away)...I didn't even put the lights up on our deck that we put on there last year...they are still sitting in a closet upstairs, and...
3. Christian is pretty much a scrooge about the whole lights thing. He always helps me put the tree up...and that's enough for him.
Well, we ran to North Platte, the closest "big" town to us, yesturday to finish our Christmas shopping and when we returned, a little elf had put lights on our house! I was so surprised when I got home. We had it narrowed down to two families on our branch that would have done it for us because they were the only ones that new we were going to be out of town. Come to find out, it was the family that Carson had stayed with while we were gone. They had taken two strands of lights that they didn't use and hung them on the house (I had told them that Christian wasn't going to put up any for me)! We are loving having lights (well, at least Carson and I are) and are greatful to have such thoughtful friends!!
