You Know What Makes Me Happy? Huge Lawn Ornaments

You Know What Makes Me Happy? Huge Lawn Ornaments

Someone dropped a big drop of red paint on Santa's beard. Oops!

I LOVE LAWN ORNAMENTS. 

If Jay and I had unlimited time and money, our house would be the Griswald's house in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, but with MORE BLOW-UP LAWN STUFF. I especially love when they are the extra big ones, that tower over some people's houses. It's like you are coming home to find a giant Santa protecting your house.

We saw one in Lowe's that's a Santa sitting in a massive truck. Imagine that on your roof? No really. Imagine it. Because it would be amazing. 

Every year since we were super little, Brenna and I would count Christmas lights on our way to my Grandpa's house on Christmas Eve. The rules were that you could only count what you could see out of your window, no peeking through the other car windows. Like most games we made up when we were little, I always won. (That's what happens when you decide the rules). I always won because there were a couple of christmas-light-happy apartment buildings on my side of the highway and by the time we got in the car to go home, Brenna would be so mad about losing that she would refuse to play. HA. Oh man, sisters are the best. You might be feeling sorry for her, but don't because she always cheated like CRAZY. She'd be all like "204, 205, 206 .... 256".

That game would be awesome now because it can include blow-ups. I feel like a huge santa should count for ten points.

Do you have a blow-up lawn ornament or any fun Christmas car games I should make Jay play?
