    I put lights on all the bushes and some of the smaller trees so I'm in the middle of about 2 days worth of trimming.

    It's embarrassing though. It's not like one of those fancy houses you see posted on YouTube. Just a few lights and yard decorations. I am building up to a really big display/light show...but this is only my second year doing exterior lighting.

    Don't be embarrassed Mike everyone has to start somewhere.Thirty years ago 1 string of 25 lights is all we could afford the important thing is to share your love of Christmas with your Family, Friends and neighbors.You will find your display will grow through the years.I went from 1 string of lights thirty years ago to this last year.
