I Dedicate This House...

...To the LaMotte Family Christmas!

I had a Griswald Family Christmas experience the other day. Andrea and I had purchased new lights for our house for Christmas, and I put them up and everything looked great. I hooked our lights up to a timer where they come on at dusk. When dusk came (around 4:45-5:00 p.m. here in Delaware), the lights came on just like they should. I saw one bulb was out because it was not screwed all the way I fixed it. And then it happened. The lights went out. For no reason. They were brandnew. Three hours of work down the tubes.

Well, today I was finally able to check the lights out. The fuse in the first strand went bad. I replaced the fuse, and all the lights work. Now we have 9 glorious strands of lights on the house (I think Clark at 25...with 100 lights each.) I'll post a picture later...but for now, this video clip will have to do.

Andrea and I got our tree decorated last night...between the hour of 9:00-10:00 p.m. Abbie was quite awake and playful. Thankfully she did go to sleep around 10 p.m.

Now I should study for my final, which is tomorrow. I'm really not in the mood to take it.
