I know it is not even Thanksgiving yet and we are hanging lights, but the weather was so nice, we had to. Five stores, four hours, three broken bulbs, two ladders, and one brother later...it is all done, and it looks great. At first I was against the colored lights. That is why we went to five different stores trying to find clear ones . Apparently they do not exist. Now they are up and I am so happy, I have decided they are fun and classic.
