deck the roof

I love this time of year and I enjoy trimming our home with lights. Today we hung our outdoor lights. It sure does put you in the mood as you pull into the driveway.

Isaiah is my climber, he loves checking out the view from the rooftop. With snow in the forecast for later this week, it was so good to walk on a dry roof. My hope is that this will be our only decorations on the roof this year.
One Christmas we came home to find Santa and his reindeer adorning our rooftop. They were fully lit and placed right on top. We ended up keeping them up for the entire Christmas Season, as it snowed the night they were secured to our roof. It created quite a conversation piece for our neighborhood. Especially with all the neighbors wondering why a pastor had Santa on his roof. We enjoyed the way it puzzled people.
One of our favorite Christmas pranks is to place a blinking light on one string of outdoor lights, and then watch the entire string blink on an unsuspecting friend's house. It works really good when you get the second story lights. I Can't wait to do it again ths year!
