    Just wanted to know, how many have put up lights? (or had to):lol: We went with more of the LED's this year. I think they make the house a eye catcher! :glasses: Let me know if you use LED's, or something else that maybe better. Thanks!

    That's what I did! We had to get some more, but the LED's sure make it nice, because you can hook them together and have one long strand of them.:lol:

    I need to look into the LED's for the peak trim, would be nice to install and leave them there.

    Let's get some photos!

    I'm almost done with stage 1! I'll post some photos as soon as it's done and when it quits raining!

    Icecile lights hanging around the front and the side (corner lot) and some flashing hanging start on the back. Next we're going to dress up the shrubs and maybe do some lights around the trim.

    My parents live out in the country and are normally too busy to put up anything other than a wreath. I put some up about 5 years ago and they were on the house for a soild 2 years. I took them down with I power washed the house and haven't put any up since then.

    When the day comes I own my own house, I'd like to say I'll have time to put some up becuase I love the look and the holiday!
