The adventures of hanging holiday lights

I love my hubby and I certainly know he loves me. Why? Well, for one thing...he's out in 40 degree temps and blustery winds, hanging our Christmas lights.  It was such a sight to see, let me tell you. (Queue chuckle) From climbing ladders (he's NOT a fan of heights) to swinging a long pogo stick through the air in order to toss the lights high up in the tree for me...that's my fab, loving husband. He makes my/our Christmas magical every year.  :)

  11. Exceptionally cute sketch this time around. Love that scarf wrapped up to his chin, and the too short pants. I hung some lights in a tree outside, but didn't have a pogo stick. That sounds easier than climbing up a ladder, throwing the string of lights around the tree, climbing down the ladder, and repeating all of that several times. But they look beautiful when I look out my window at night.

  12. Nothing makes me feel quite like a kid again as Christmas themed illustrations. The one from Sunday and this one both delight! The magic of the season is really in the work that creates it. . . Michael is obviously a child-spirit as well. I have neighbors in their late 60's who decorate their house and trees every year, no matter the weather, and I hope they always will. . . enjoy the magic and the lights! Ahhh, now I'm getting allllll Christmas-squishy inside. :) lol
