My christmas house of 2009. The fir tree is over 60' tall with a 8'x8' star I had to carry the star up the tree.

For my MoMMY

I started the major lighting in honor of my mother.The lord took her from me last August one week after my 45th birthday and 1 month after he took my father. Each year the house is dedicated to my mother Sharon. My promise to her was that she would be able to see her (our) house at Christmas time. That way she is sure to be here and help me out because the holiday just does not seem the same to me with out her. I started hanging lights when my emotions got to heavy with missing her. Lots of tear laced bulbs. I’ve never been able to hang up all of my lights before. I now find myself purchasing more. My favorites are the 8-foot by 8-foot star that sits atop a 60-foot Douglas Fir tree,The "Flying AirDogs filling in for Santa's reindeer to mention a few. This year the "Ice Tree" received most attention until the weather warmed and it disappeared. I added the red white and blue flashing tree this year to honor my nephew serving in Iraq.
The neighborhood knopws the house is finished when MOM is added to the roof!
Thank you and Merry Christmas everyone hug your MoMMY
