I bet Joey's been waiting all week for me to sing his praises on this one. He absolutely HATES putting up the Christmas lights. He dreads it all year. No joke.
Wait, hate is not a strong enough word. How about loath? Yeah, loath is much better.
He loathes putting up the Christmas lights. But I love having the house decorated and coming home from work everyday to see the house all lit up - because you better believe we have a million extension cords running to however many timers - yeah, I know, we're a huge fire hazard I'm sure. But hey, I love it. And that what matters.
This year, this is what I got.
A husband and son who not only put up the Christmas lights, but trimmed the tree before they did it. What the?
Now, in my heart of hearts, I know it had something to do with the brand-spankin' new truck Joey bought the day before. He had the urge to do some haulin'. (Which, hey, if it causes him to trim the trees, clean out the garage, and make 4 trips to Goodwill with all of the junk from the kids rooms that I cleaned out that week, more power to him!)
But I'm also choosing to believe it was because he wanted the lights to look super fab for me.
Otherwise, he wouldn't have done this.
And finally created this.
Have I mentioned I LOVE Christmas?<
And my fabulous-Christmas-light-hanging husband? Yeah, he rocks. I know.
(By the way, honey, any idea how that reindeer got to the other side of the house?)
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
