Tis The Season...

I mentioned in a previous post that Christmas is my favorite time of year. I also mentioned that I would post some pics of my yard decorations when I got them put out. Well, today was the day. My wife and I climbed in the attic, took out all those boxes of decorations, and put back in boxes of Halloween decorations and baby clothes. It's a never ending cycle of pulling stuff out and putting stuff back in around here. However, Christmas is big in our home. Not only for the spiritual significance it has for our family, but also because my wife and I are like big kids around the holidays and now that we have two little ones, it just compounds the joy and anticipation. I actually look forward to hanging lights and decorating the house.

To make matters worse, we are also Disney junkies and are making our annual (sometimes we miss a year) pilgrimage to Walt Disney World next weekend. My oldest son is two and this will be his second trip. We always go as a family including grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncles, and cousins. We are also taking a friend and riding buddy and his family this year. Not only that but we are meeting friends there that have as many in their group as we do. So it should be fun. We are tying two of our favorite things together, Christmas and Disney.

Anyway, since Thanksgiving is passed and the Christmas season has officially began, I wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and all the blessings you can handle.

Here is the real reason you read the post, the pics of the yard art:

Every yard needs an inflatable Santa, mine just happens to ride a motorcycle!!!
An overview of my yard:
The only snow I'll see this Christmas:
Mickey and Minnie, obviously:
Donald, complete with Santa hat and a scowl (this is my favorite):
Goofy, sporting the German helmet and some mini-apes:
I did the artwork myself, so forgive me for any technical inaccuracies.

Those are great decorations! You shouldn't worry about any technical inaccuracies, the artwork is awesome, if I did it, they would all be stick figures!

RTR: Wishing you and the whole crew an enjoyable little vacation. Disney can be a lot of fun. Nice looking yard too. I think you did a bang up job on it plus it is all original stuff making it even better. I don’t process any type of that talent.

Great Decos! I love your Disney M/C! I still have to coerce my hubby to get our stuff up!
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Wow...those are GREAT! I love Christmas too. I always put my Christmas tree up at least a week before Thanksgiving and it's decorated with many motorcycle ornaments. Imagine that! :)

Have a wonderful Holiday!!!
