Christmas Time is Here!!!

Well, we pulled all the Christmas stuff out this weekend. The fake tree (yes, we love fake!), the christmas ornaments and decorations...and lastly the outdoor decorations. After some deliberation on what to do for the house this year....we decided to GO GREEN by purchasing those LED lights.

What an amazing technology! There are so many benefits to these light compared to the standard bulb light. Here's the comparison:

life expectancy
- LEDs last 200,000 hours and regular bulbs last 1000-2000 hours.
safety - LEDs don't emit heat like the traditional bulbs. Thus reducing the risk of fire or burning.
simplicity - you can string up to 80 strands in series, where you can only do 3 strands of regular lighting before you have to get another power cord.

So here is the comparison of the new and improved (left) vs. last year's setup (right).The craziest thing happened while we were putting lights up on the house...some people came and parked across the street, went into a house down the way and when I turned to look behind me there was a DEAD deer on the roof of their car! They obviously had been hunting all day and shot the deer, but it was disgusting! Who puts a dead carcass on the roof of their car and makes a stop in the neighborhood! LOL. So I had to take some pictures of it.
