I have never been much into decorating with outside lights, but it wasn't because I didn't like them. Before we moved over here, we lived in a subdivision that was pretty densely populated and you couldn't leave anything outside without risk of theft. As far as outside lights, if the vandals didn't take the whole strings, they would take the bulbs. One year though, when my older daughter was living with us with her little girl, my wife bought some outside lights and wanted me to put them up. It was Christmas Eve and cold and foggy outside, but I relented and got the ladder out and started putting the lights up. My granddaughter Rachel got all bundled up and stood in the front yard watching me and singing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas". It was pretty hard for me to grumble much when that little girl was so happy.

This place was a veritable beehive of activity today. My wife took over the library and the dining room. David enlisted the help of two of the grandkids and got quite a few of the outside lights up. I saw that I didn't have any extension cords left in the garage. I do have a couple squirreled away though that he doesn't know about. I asked him today though before I went to the hardware store if he needed any specialty cords. What that means id a cord of an odd length that I could make up for him. I did buy a few feet of a couple of different wire sizes though so I could make up some sjort cords if needed. I'm going to try to get some pictures tomorrow.
