Hanging Christmas lights on my house is a nightmare. It is all stucco with no eves.. Last couple years I got the clips and managed to get them on the rain gutters, but even a mild breeze and they would fall down.. Anyone have any suggestions?
Mighty putty :D

Hanging x-mas light isn't the hard part. The hard part is having enough patience to unravel the damn cords and taking the time to throw them up. Redneck paradise :D

I also surprised a good friend who became paralyzed last year and his family on Sunday with some lights. It's his first Christmas home since his accident. For some true inspiration, check out his wife's blog. http://newdawnforus.blogspot.com/

Thanks for the kind words CC. His wife updated her blog last night with the complete story and what it meant to them. Her writing really puts the emotion of what a simple act can mean to a person or family. I know a lot of RDP members do random acts of kindness, so please read because I know most people can't express their appreciation like she can. Needless to say, I shed a few happy and sad tears after reading it. http://newdawnforus.blogspot.com/

Merry Christmas RDP!!!

Someone gave us like an 800 dollar gift card to pottery barn and it bought us those ornaments baby dogs and cats running around is a little crazy
We like the Nordic noble furs. Pricey by look very classy. We spent a couple g's on ornaments from the pottery barn. Don't ask me why
For some reason we got a 5k dollar gift card there for our wedding. (I know the reason)My wife went all out on Christmas ornaments. That stuff is just really expensive there

How much was that gift card for again??? :hmm

Hopefully it was just 800 and for some reason I'm thinking a lot more. Maybe the gift card was more and we spent 800 on ornaments. Either way pretty dumb purchase since the ferrets and cats did break some and in sure eli will too.

Had a late start this year be we are finally 98% there. Have a few more little things to do and a couple of fixes. Then going to add some music to some of the lights. Should be done tomorrow.
