Up On The Rooftop

On the morning of my birthday (Nov 21) it was supposed to be snowing. Oliver has a huge aversion to putting up the Christmas lights on the house when there is snow on the ground. This could have something to do with his falling off the two-story roof of our townhouse two years ago...

When we awoke, we realized that it wasn't snowing yet and we thought that it would probably be the last Saturday without snow for awhile so we anxiously put up our lights.



Oliver worked from up on the roof and I worked from the ladder and we got them up, went to the store to buy more, and finished with hot chocolate in a little over two hours. Since then we have had to unstring and restring one strand that we blew out. But, we love the way they look and if I can remember I will take a picture at night - especially since we now have a ton of beautiful white snow!
