Day 334 - One Day Closer

Our subdivision is a popular drive-through neighborhood for light-seers during the Holidays. We're taking advantage of the extra traffic to show our appreciation to all those who have supported Wayne and us during his deployment this year.

Actually, we're all so excited, we feel like dancing, so we're taking lessons from THIS GUY at the Air Force Academy!

Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells! Jingle ALL THE WAY!!

P.S. If you didn't click on "THIS GUY," go back, do not pass Go, and do not collect $200.
