After Halloween someone asked what we do for Christmas and this is it!

We used (that means me) used to put up the old traditional lights around the windows but after the success with rope lights at halloween and the fact the little squirrel bastards kept eating through the regular lights I switched the rope ones for the windows.

Show us yours!






And of course...The trains!!!!

Love love love the trains! One of our boys has an LGB set that he's had since he was a child and now that he has kids of his own he's regaining his interest. We were just at a Train Fest with them a few weeks ago - so fun!

And everything is computerized now! I can run all the trains from an app on my phone from the smoke to the whistle to the bell but they have certainly gone up in price as well. The big boy engine the one on the outer track retails for 1800! :eek:

One of the coolest features now that I like is the synchronized chuffing of smoke with the sounds!

Very cool Tex! I just found a free fake lighted Christmas tree on my bike ride home today. I think it moves around in a circle as it has some kind of swivel base. Will see when I plug it in. The people put a sign on it saying it works. You know how that goes tho.

haha I love your dog @Somethin' Fishy

Ok wife is mad at me because she said my pictures stink so here's more





I stay the heck away from the tree because she puts on these glass oranments that are literally irreplaceable which means no way in hell am I getting near it.

Mine are pretty lame and low key but they add a little bit of the Christmas Spirit to my soul.

Here is that free tree I found while out riding my bike the other day and it does turn around nicely and all the lights worked:

This little ceramic house lights up inside and I have a red bulb in there. The other night we were watching a Hill House haunted show and my husband looked over and said that house looks just like the Hill House burning up inside w/ghosts!

You know I love snow so I have to love Snowmen:

Santa's to amuse the little grand-daughter:

So this is our Merry Little Christmas to all!

@j.w - I made those mop Santas for family gifts years ago! My sister still has hers - she's the only true fan of my handiwork! I put those little push button music makers in the end of Santas cap so he plays cheerful Christmas songs!

This is last year's pic of our loft railings:

This year we retired the 10 1/2' tree and got a shorter one; so the deer are easier to see. I didn't decorate the rail this year, but put a new bow on the doe.
