I deleted my previous post because I forgot to answer your question.

Love your layout, the paper snowman (I am a scrapbooker!), and the real snowman.

We have lights for outside, but we haven't put them up yet.

Luv2talk said...

We don't have ours up 'yet', but DH says he's going to very soon. LOL. We moved into a new house and he had to 'reconfigure' what lights were gonna work at our new place. I think he just wants an excuse to go buy more. ;)

Heather V said...

We have lights on our tree, and lights on a little display in our basement, but no lights outside this year. We have had fun driving around looking at other peoples' beautiful outdoor light displays, though!

Michele said...

Lord yes! My hubby is light crazy. Our house looks like something out of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. We have icicle lights, lights on the banister, lighted wreaths, and MY lighted pink flamingo in the front yard.

Susan Pond said...

YES!!!! My son in law goes nuts with Christmas lights.

Lucy said...

That layout is great, as are all the others you do. We're forgoing lights and a tree this year since we will be out of town for Christmas. I do miss them and love driving around looking at all the homes so brightly decorated. They have a way of putting me in a good mood.

Katie Burnett said...

Um, excuse me. You did NOT tell me you were one of the 12 MME Designers of Christmas! WAY TO GO!!! Love the CK layout too. Are you going to be on their Dream Team next year or what?

Scrapbookdoll said...

Your snowman was adorable on your layout! And yes we put lights up outside, I live in a townhouse so 1 strand of lights fit and 1 strand for my bushes not many but they are perfect for us.

mary h. said...

You Bah-Humbug! How could you not put up the lights after you bought them AND drove around to pick out which ones you wanted. *giggle*

LOVE your dirty snowman layout. It is so simple but perfect.

Lelia said...

Saw that your layout in CK(?) and knew it was yours without even looking close!

No, we do not have outside lights up this year. Mostly because my husband and I do not agree on them. He thinks they should all be blue. I think they should be clear

Paige said...

No lights for us but I do have one of those humongous wreaths with lights and a cool glittery bow...I love it!

jennj42 said...

We live in an apartment, so we don't put up lights.

Patricia said...

Beautiful layout! We only have lights up in our bushes this year. Our roof is being redone in the next week or so and we didn't want to put them up and risk having them damaged! thanks for the chance!

SavannaLea said...

We do have some outside lites, but they are all on ground level, DH refuses to get on the roof!!

Stephanie Eaken said...

Love your layout-so cute!! We have lit garland on our lamppost & pre-lit trees by our front door. That's it!!

Kathy Martin said...

Your layout is AWESOME! Love the big snowman!

We used to put lights up on the house, the last house we lived in. Our current home, however is way to tall with a steep roof...so for safety reasons, we don't put lights up anymore. We make up for it big time on the inside of the house! ;) Thank you for the chance to win some lovely stamps! :)

Gretchen Krisher said...

Lots of lights in and out! But my husband the Scrooge always complains when he puts up the lights outside (he still does it for me, though!).

gssfam said...

Yikes! Lights? We have not had the time to get them up outside this year....booo...I wish though! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Barb said...

Lights....love them! Inside and out. Went from 200 lights on the Christmas tree to 750 and haven't got the ornaments on yet! Cause the lights alone look so pretty.
Thanks for sharing.

Denise said...

No lights this year... No lights, no tree and no decorations. That's a first for me. But I was out of town to visit my Mom and her house was decked out enough for two.... easily.

No outside lights for me. I just enjoy my neighbor's.

susanv said...

No lights on our house. I actually told my hubby the other day if we ever put lights on our house, it will be because we paid somebody to do it!

owliecupcake said...

Yup, we have some pretty snowmen and snowflakes lining the bushes and sidewalk, then some icicles and big bulbs on the roofline, and a few lights on the porch.

Heather DG said...

Love the layout - your melting snowman looks kind of like me with all the Christmas treats I've been munching yum!

Picking out the kind you like is half the battle - way to go!!

No lights for us this year, they are still packed somewhere unknown from our summer move. Way BUMMMed about it too!

Elizabeth Bailey said...

No light up outside. I have a garland with lights to hang around the door, if husband gets to it this year.

gocanucksgo said...

What a cute layout!! We don't have any lights on the outside =( All our lights are in the inside lol. Thanks =)

TZel said...

I have no lights up.

Sandy Ang said...

No lights as I'd be terrified to have to climb up to the roof and deal with the electrics.

Andy said...

no this year and it makes me sad. i love Christmas lights

Deana said...

No lights, we're too lazy. But we do have a giant snow globe in the front yard!

Melinda AKA medialady said...

Nope, no lights up on the outside. We've got too old to get on the roof - LOL!

Ronda said...

I love the outside lights, but was unable to get any up.

Wendy aka Bling Queen said...

Ok-No lights this year. We normally do them but my hubby said he was not totally in the spirit. It has been a tough year. I understand.

CJ said...

Lights are up! None on the roof anymore, though, as it took its toll on Chipper's back a few years ago. I miss that . . . but not enough to try to do it myself. :)

peggylee said...

wow I just found your blog this morning. I really love it and having a hot cup of coffee and enjoying reading more of it....Love the snowman...yes we have lights (the sad thing is we can call ourselves rednecks since we never took them down from last year) lol....Happy Holidays.

Peggy Lee and yes the lights still work...lol
