I'm taking a few weeks off to enjoy family time and the holiday season. In the meantime, what are your plans for Christmas? We have a ton of family, so our holidays are usually travel-filled. Do you already have your decorations up? Any lights up outside? Here's one of our favorite area houses. The folks who run the Bluelights house, as it's called, ask everyone who stops by to donate to Toys for Tots. If you can believe it, there are 100,000 (mostly LED) lights on the house, lit from sundown to midnight every night. Wonder if they ever get any sleep!

We put up outdoor lights our first Christmas here, but since then haven't had the energy to do it again. Certainly not as much energy as these folks have! If you're ever in the area, definitely check out this house and remember to bring a toy to donate. They mention on the website that donations are down this year, so Mr. GI and I plan to donate.
Thanks for reading this year! It's been so much fun for me to have a creative outlet for our projects, and I'm happy to have a little audience. :-) Happy holidays, and see you again in 2012!
