This afternoon we got to experience a real Christmas treat. One of Papa's friend's from work goes above and beyond when it comes to decking the halls. His decorations are kind of famous and have been filmed and photographed to be featured in the news. Apparently, he does this every year and my guess is it has just grown and grown. Today he even invited Santa to be there so that visitors could not only enjoy all of his decorations, but also get to talk to Santa, too! He collects donations for a charitable cause and does all of this out of the goodness of his heart.
Ryan, Heather and Rylan came along for the fun this afternoon. Gigi and Papa were happy to have all the grandkids together for a picture by the Christmas tree.
We weren't sure quite what to expect about this house, but when we pulled up there was no doubt we were at the right place.
I have never! It was like something out of a movie. Every single inch of his yard was covered with inflatable decorations. They were on the roof, hanging out of the windows, stuck in the trees and every other place they could be squeezed. There were extension cords coming out of every window, Christmas music playing and there was so much laughter and joy!
The kids loved walking around and checking out all of the different decorations. Not one was alike and there were some really unique ones, too.
They all got to talk to Santa and he confirmed they were all still on the nice list. He told Harper he'd be by our house is just about a week and a half!
