It's been a while since I mentioned my strange new neighbors. For the most part, we've decided they aren't too bad. They aren't as loud as they used to be. Although they are somewhat weird, they do seem to be pretty nice most of the time. When pruning a tree, they came over to let us know they would come clean up any branches that fell into our yard. And they have invited us to a few picnics they were having.
So I feel somewhat guilty making fun of them . . . . but not guilty enough not to do it!! I'd been wanting to blog about their Christmas display for a while. And as soon as I caught wind of the XXmas Contest, I knew I had to snap some covert photos and share with everyone.
You see, my new neighbor told another neighbor that they are really excited to be spending their first Christmas in their own home. Now if it were me, I'd show my pride by choosing some tasteful decorations to really make my new home shine. You know, sometimes less is more. But I suppose, in their opinion, MORE is more.
So, now that I've finished my snarky Grinchy post, I'm going to check on Pea. We've been together for 7 1/2 years, and today was the first day since I've know him that he called in sick to work. He even had a 101.6 fever, poor guy. Although I suppose it's better to get it over with now so he won't be sick for Christmas.
