I find it a little funny that I am taking the Christmas decorations down and I am going to post about putting the lights up.
I tried to put the lights up myself this year. We've never hung lights before and we have tons of lights for it. We didn't have a staple gun so I tried to be resourceful to hang the lights. I used thumbtacks. Jared came home and was impressed with my efforts but laughed and said that won't work. I should have just waited for Jared to come home but part of me thinks if I hadn't tried we never would have done it.
Jared got the right materials to hang the lights and went to town. Benjamin and I kept him company out in the cold.
Benjamin had fun walking around climbing the stairs and the ladder. It was chilly though.
I love having the lights up. It's so pretty.
