Light House

December 17, 2009

I am OBSESSED with this house. My mom turned me on to it last Christmas season. It was impressive. Catherine wasimpressed, at least. The Christmas show lasted me through the fall, and then I thought to myself, “you need to go see if they do anything for Halloween.” Boy Howdie do they. It included a maze through their front yard to go trick or treat. When I went back a few days later to photograph it for you, I found this:

Who does this for Thanksgiving? I really want to meet these people.

You should see what they do for Christmas. I’ll get there.

For some reason, I am really into the lights this year. The local paper was reading my mind because they made this for me. Get me a GPS and some wifi and I am good to go!

Speaking if which, aren’t you wondering how the troops and I plan to get into the Christmas spirit? I thought so. I’ll let you know, But only if you join me for one or more event.

SATURDAY
I am pretty sure I can get my kids to call this a train.

OK, we’re probably not going to go to this, but this is smart marketing.
