in every neighborhood, 
at every christmas season, 
there's one particular house (& i suspect one very enthusiastic dad behind it)
that's so lit up that anyone walking by at night
(within a ten mile radius) 
has no need for a flashlight. 

and around here, that'd be robbie's neighbor.

  4. I always like these houses, I wish we did more lights. It is more work than I'm willing to undertake though!

  8. oh my goodness, so awesome! when we were driving around town before Christmas, we saw a house totally decked out like this one, and their neighbour had a sign out front that said "DITTO" in lights, definitely made us laugh. ;)
