we did it. we went into the overloaded christmas blow-up figurines lady's house. wow that is a mouthful. that's what she said. no she didn't say that. but i did. and i am really immature. anyway moving on.
we were driving by last night and noticed that she had a cardboard sign that said ....
"openhouse Dec. 20th 6-11pm"
it was as if our prayers had been answered. it truly was a christmas miracle! how could we not go see the inside of her house!? so we went in. and it was the most AWESOME THING EVER. awesome enough that i had to caps those words. it was even better than i imagined. there were several decorated rooms. i learned that there are over $10,000 worth of blow-up figurines in her yard, some are over $300 each. all of them are insured. there are surveillance cameras watching them because apparently they have been cut/popped before. the police drive by nightly to check on them. the lady with her awesomely large hair served us cake, ham sandwiches, and punch. all while in her bathrobe. i was blown away. i wish you could have been there. there was stuff everywhere. it was so cool.
anyway, i loved every second of it. these pictures don't do it justice.
also, i didn't even get pictures of all the rooms. there were just too many.
stay tuned for my post on why christmas is cancelled. because i am angry.
it deserves it's own post.
