A Dream Realized!

When we first moved to this tiny magic town, someone told us there was a Christmas decorating contest each year. Brooks immediately told me he was going to win it. Big words from someone who had NEVER decorated a house before. Spending every Christmas away from home visiting family meant that it didn't make sense to go all out, but I knew it was always something that Brooks wanted to do. So he started small in 2014 with some lights and then upped his game in 2015 with small trees and garlands. This year he added a decked out mailbox (thanks to his mom for the assist!) and a few more lights. Last week they announced the winners - and we won Best Traditional Decorations for 2016! What a great way to kick off the year - not to mention it made his week :)!
