How to Decorate Your New Home for Christmas for Less Than $650,000!

So we haven't owned a home in 14 years.  Instead we've been living in homes provided by the churches we have served.  Now like anything, there is good and bad to that.  But we are truly enjoying owning a home and being able to invest in decor and decorations that we know (God willing, instead of the bishop) that we'll be here next year to enjoy them!  And we LOVE our house!!!!   We feel so incredibly blessed to be here.  In order to celebrate those blessings, we went out and bought Christmas decorations worth many times the fair market value of our house.  What a better way to prove you're blessed than to decorate!  I'm providing some before and after pictures so you can enjoy the season with us:

I see there is quite a bit of landscaping and home renovations as well!

Impressive.

that makes me want to vomit. there is a house out in Richland (named for the people that live there..) that has all sorts of inflatable things on the front yard and lights everywhere and I think there was a George W with a santa hat in the upstairs window.

unrelated.. my verification word is Weeni...since when do these things call names?

Brett Probert said...

Sarah...I hear ya. Isn't GWB really Santa Claus? I always thought he was!

Sorry for the name calling. I'll have to take it up with powers that be.

Dude, I like what you have done with the place. Thanks for keeping it real.

Brett Probert said...

Chris...you know me and real! I'm an amiable, as you can tell from the decorations. I just decorated like this for Jesus. I think he's really happy right now.

HMMMM I swear I saw a house that looked just like that on Invasion of the Christmas lights on TV. Woah was that you? Thats super cool.

Brett Probert said...

Hey Raylen...you caught me.

Ben said...

I knew it!!! Can you give me some decorating tips? I'm gonna need your autograph too. :)

Raylen Darby said...

Sorry that last comment was me, I guess my dads account was on.

Brett Probert said...

Ya Raylen...I can give you some tips.

1. Don't overdo it. Sometimes less is more.
2. Remember the reason for the season.

Raylen Darby said...

HMMMM I'll have to work on not over doing my Christmas decorations too much, I mean you obviously didn't. Yes we must definately remember what Christmas is really all about. But I still need your autograph.
