Christmas Eve, Eve.

Things are looking great around the Neighborhood!

Santa Bunny knows when you've been good...

Christmas time is here.

We'll be drawing near.

Oh, that we could always see,

Such spirit through the year.

Holiday Spirit Award Update!

Janice Delosky and I trekked the neighborhood tonight appreciating everyone's holiday spirit.

We should all take a minute and know what a great neighborhood we live in and how wonderful it is that each home is unique with interesting design.

The Briers 2009 Holiday Spirit Award


Tomorrow I will be posting the homes for judging. 

I will label each home and you must comment to be heard.  

Comments are hidden so feel free to vote...and vote often. 

You don't have to pick just one.

But that's not all.

Spruce up your place tomorrow night!

We would love to see some sort of decoration...wreath, bells, stars...

Christmas Eve

I'll be out and about around 9 pm to see if here is anything new...if it's raining, I reserve the right to stay inside and sit by the fire. 

 If you wanna help judge, let me know and come with.

1 more shopping day til Christmas!

Briers Christmas, 2009

Bulbs on Stakes!

Howdy Neighbors,
In the spirit of the holidays and the eternal quest for neighborhood involvement, I thought I would take some time to document the decorated homes in our community.

We do have a Neighborhood Spirit Award, a.k.a. Yard of the Month.  The month of December brings with it a special Holiday Spirit Award....the Yard of the Month sign all dressed up for the season...

First night of Judging was tonight!  We will do 2 more evenings of walking the neighborhood to see what is going on.  The Winner will be decided by comments and feedback both here, facebook (join our group on facebook) and the Briers Yahoo group.  If there are no comments, I will narrow it down to 3 and send out emails asking for direct responses to count as a vote.  Vote early and vote often!

Here is a sampling of tonights contestants:

Briers Way, Christmas in the South!

I love a Blue Christmas!

Happy Holidays Folks!
See you around the Neighborhood!
