Christmas Decorations

Happy Holidays. My family and I decorate our yard every year for the people who live in Forest Park and in Ketchikan.. We lost a lot of displays last year due to the snow and have yet to repair them. But sadly tonight (12-14-09) when our daughter got home she noticed our penguin blow up missing!!!

We decorate our home to provide something that I was brought up with, Christmas cheer. It's a great joy for myself, husband and our daughters to see people stop and look at our lights and music. The best is the children who walk to and from the bus. I am disappointed that someone felt the need to take a holiday decoration from our yard.

It takes time to put these lights together and set up, let alone the cost. My family and I will continue to do this for as long as we are able. All I ask from Santa this year is the return of our decoration -- no questions asked ... unless next year you would like to come over and help decorate?

I know it's cold out but a lot of people have decorated their homes that are so wonderful, that a family momment is there for us all.

Again Happy Holidays
