    I'll Start with the front of the house and work my way through the house to the back porch.
    The lights are C9 LED lights that go all the way around the house.

    To the left of the front entry is my Train Layout (hope to get it finished one day)









    Normally this tree is decorated with train ornaments but since we opted to only do 4 trees this year instead of 7, I decided to do it with my retro 1940-1960 style ornaments.The older folks like myself will remember Shiny Brite ornaments.Christopher Radko has bought the name and is producing them in all sorts of new and colorful styles.










    This corner of the layout is Christmas Mountain,it is covered in snow and the shops are decorated with Christmas lights.There is a skating rink with moving skaters and the Stained glass windowed church has a light up Nativity scene.

    I love all of it, but my favorite is your Christmas city ( It's way more than a village!)!

    Wow, and this is with you guys cutting back! lol

    My favorite I think is the nutcrackers- I have a soft spot for them. I also like retro ornaments- they have character.

    You have an interesting shaped house. The whole effect with the lights and everything is stylish.

    Do you take that whole village/city room down every year and then put it back up?

    The detail! Your family/guests (and us!) are lucky that you love to do it!

    Thanks for the tour!
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.
