We didn't decorate much outside our home this year.
Inside looks great - but the outside -- well, we opted for sanity instead.
A big part of the reason we didn't decorate is because NOBODY would EVER look this side of the street, since our amazing neighbors, 'The Griswold's' as we affectionately refer to them, completely DECK THE HALLS.
Santa's sleigh and all the reindeer, too. It fun to look at from our home, and an added reason why we're not even going to try. :)

After we celebrated my brother's birthday at my parents' home yesterday, we decided to take Gianna to look at Christmas lights.
"Let's go find some more!" was the exclamation of the night.
We heard that there was one house in our town who had their light display set to music on a radio station. We waited quite a while to get close enough to see the house, but it was well worth it to see Gianna's reaction.
I wish we would have gotten to slow down a bit at the Nativty, but the drive-by was enough to excite Gianna.
The best light show came from the spactacular moon which happened to be rising at the time of our little light tour. Gianna is quite obsessed with the moon, so she was pretty excited.
