Not Decorations

I love to decorate for holidays. One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season is driving around and looking at all the houses.

With Halloween coming up in a few days several people have begun to put out some pumpkins and other spooky decorations. But can I please say that the large blow up "decorations" are not really decorations!

Oh this is probably my biggest pet peeve! I hate they way they look. I am so sorry if you have some of these in your yard. But to me they look a little lazy. It's like the homeowner didn't really want to decorate but thought they needed to do something so they just threw this inflatable balloon type thing in the yard and called it a day.

And during the day when they aren't blown up they just lay on the yard like a hot air balloon that got shot down! haha!

Sorry for the rant but as I was leaving my neighborhood this morning I saw too many houses with this type of "festive decoration" and I had to say something.

Do you like the inflatable pumpkins, Christmas trees and snowmen?


  1. me too, I think they're just a little too much!

  2. Omigosh, that first Halloween picture is too much!! I've never owned a blow-up decoration lawn ornament before and don't think we ever will. I agree, they look so pitiful all limp and un-blown-up during the day! You know the Skymall magazines placed in airplanes? Greg found a 10 foot blow up football player of any NFL team of your choosing in the magazine. He really wants one, but I said no ;-)

  3. I'm with you 110%! I can't stand them!!!! For some reason I feel like we had this discussion last Christmas haha!
