John says - There's too many lights - are you nuts?

John says - I can't imagine what the electric bill is going to be

John says - I need sunglasses to watch t.v.

John says - we have more lights IN the house than everyone else combined has OUTSIDE their houses !

Suzan says - Why don't you just go Bah Humbug in the den  - watch t.v. or something?

John says - I would but it looks like a discotheque in there !

I don't think John has ever stepped in a discotheque in his life.
I on the other hand basically lived in them in the 70's
And they did NOT look like this !

Some people live with monkeys on their backs -
I live with one of these one mine

Have a wonderful day everyone !
Today's my last " shopping " run



  1. Your home looks beautiful as I knew it would. Men just don't appreciate the finer things which include glitter. Love the moose in the globe. Have fun shopping and I wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and a fabulous year ahead. Hope Santa spoils you all...even John. Hugs, Deb and her crew.

  2. You can never have too many lights at Christmas! Your home looks so pretty Suzan. I did a last run to town yesterday and hubby and I may go tomorrow or the 24th just for fun. In case I don't get back here I wish you and John and your family a wonderful Christmas! Hugs. Pam

  3. I am lucky that my Joe is as much INTO Christmas as I am! Poor John needs to relax and enjoy this!!! Whishing you and your family a merry and blessed and HAPPY Christmas!!! (Do you hear me John:):):)

  4. Everything looks just gorgeous Suzan! I hope you and Mr. Grinch...I mean John, have a lovely Christmas! Enjoy that precious new grandbaby's first Christmas! Love and Hugs, Vicky

  5. Ha ha once again you brought a smile to my face! I think your house looks lovely with all those lights! You can never have too many twinkly lights or candles in my opinion - warm and cozy all the way. Merry Christmas!

  6. Beautiful job of decorating and I love the lights. You don't have near the lights that some people have up compared around here; me included. You're putting yours all up and I'm already in the process ng some of my decorations down already being we already had our family Christmas gathering and have been invited out on Christmas day so many of my decorations have already been boxed up and put away; put then my house has been decorated since the middle of October.

    Wishing you and John and the rest of your family a Very Merry Christmas.

  7. Picturing John in a disco is cracking me up even more than his grumbling about all the lights. After they're taken down, I give him 2 days before he's complaining that he misses them.

  8. More lights!! More lights!! The one super advantage to Christmas and all the lights is that I can go to the bathroom at night without turning on a single light or feeling my way!! It's so pretty that I meander through my house and admire everything. We have floor to ceiling windows, 24 on this level and I have strung those 100 light tiny led strings from Dollar General around all the windows(well, up, across and down every two) and wow, is it pretty!! I leave them up for at least a month after Christmas. Merry Christmas!!!!!

  9. You can't have have too many lights. Merry Christmas!

  10. Oh goodness, silly John. Of course you need lots of lights! Inside and out. Merry Christmas!

  11. Wishing you and John a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy having all the grands over for Christmas. How fun and exciting to have the families all together. Enjoy.

  12. Ha! It's me again! Yours is the Grinch and mine is Mr.Scrooge! Ha! You spend tooo much money! Ha! Oh well! The house looks beautiful right! Anyway! We know how the story ends for both characters sooo we will keep our wonderful Christmas guys ! They love it in the end! He loves color lights! I love white! I put separate clickers on the large tree! I just click the color off when I've had enough! Ha! All my others trees are white lights so I had to give him something! LOL ! Busy baking and. Wrapping! Just finished my last grocery shopping! Whew! Enough already! Ho!Ho!Ho! Bye,my friend! Cindy

    1. Oh my gosh Cindy - I do the same thing with the lights - clear and color on different clickers !The little ones used to think I was a magician - I'd have the clicker under my foot and tell them to tell me which one they liked and I'd click - they'd look at in amazement LOL !
      John's a combo of scrooge and grinch - but in the end? He LOVED all of it !!!

  13. Wow,Suzan, I want you to rent your house out for the Holidays so we could all have turns being in a beautifully and wonderfully decorated Christmas house! It is just lovely! I'm sure you have it in you to melt your Grinch's heart! I think it is just MAGICAL! I get the Christmas spirit just looking at the pictures!! You have so much PEP! I really admire you!
    Have a wonderful, Blessed Christmas--especially with Sweet Baby Evan! Boy, you've got it all!
    God Bless you!

    1. You would NOT want to rent my house for the holidays - just trust me on that one - still too many reno's to do LOL !
      Thanks for being my biggest cheerleader and hope your Christmas was as wonderful as ours was !
