Xmas in our hood

Last night the girl took us for a walk through our neighborhood to look at all the shiny lights on the houses. Here is our house. It's kind of boring - we just have one little string of lights around the front porch. The other houses on our street are a little more festive. This neighbor wrapped green lights around their palm trees.
This house actually looks prettier during the day. It has lots of wreaths with big red bows and several pointsettias on the porch. This house is near the end of our street. Our girl really likes how they decorated it with the red lights.

The next couple of houses are around the corner from us. They are pretty.

A lot of people decorated their palm trees this year. Some just have lights, and others have lights and ornaments.




Some people put funny decorations up. Our girl likes this one! We wanted to chase the flamingos.

Other people used lots of lights on their house.

Some people covered their entire house with lights. This house is on the far side of our neighborhood. We don't see this house on our walks because we would have to cross really busy roads to get there. Our girl is happy that this house isn't on our block. It's too bright and too many people stop to look at it.


We hope you enjoyed seeing how our neighborhood was decorated. How is your neighborhood decorated?

Woofies Comet and Blu! Whoa, the Christmas decorations are very nice. Our neighborhood is really boring, there's hardly any decorations. Thanks for sharing the pics! I bet is fun walking while able to enjoy the christmas decos. I read your previous post, your mom is really kind and nice to think of the homeless dogs. I really pity for the dogs, they must be really sad and heart shattered that their owners abondoned them.. how cruel.. sobs..
Merry Christmas btw!!

Thanks for putting up the christmas decorations. We loved looking at them. Most of the houses around us aren't decorated at all.

Hi, friends
Your neighborhood looks great! I'd love to see houses decorated like those you have there!
This year there are not many decorations here. We don't have many ornaments but I like how it looks!
Merry Christmas!

Holy Mother of Dog! Those people really spent their money & time putting up all of those bootiful decorations!!! Those houses sure attracts huge crowds! X'mas is not a huge thing here in Malaysia so no houses decorates like those in your country...
