The December 2018 Decorated Yard of the Month belongs to Gabriel and Melissa (Renner) Williamson. Here is what Melissa had to say about their yard:
Thank you so much for the honor of Decorated Yard of the Month. We are delighted!
Our Christmas display has grown over the years, as we typically scour the clearance aisles to pick out one or two new items after Christmas — something we can add to the display the following year.
We like the white lights on the house, but we also like a lot of color, so the colorful path lights are my favorite. Gabriel custom-made the tree that is on our flagpole, and this year it has presents underneath and ornaments hanging within. Our Nutcracker keeps watch from the west arbor. But who are we kidding? We know the addition of the FLYING PIG on our east deck is what put us over the top.
I gently suggested we should have a theme, but Gabriel said our theme is anything that lights up. That works! And we are overjoyed when we see people stop and take pictures with the flying pig or candy cane-munching dinosaur. Our own small children love it all, too.
We love our old house, big trees, great neighbors and pretty, joyful neighborhood. Thank you for recognizing us. We hope our yard makes you smile. Happy Holidays!
