What happened to our house?!?



After this weekend, I have no doubt that The Husband has assimilated into American culture.

For those of you who don't know, The Husband became a citizen of the USA about a year and a half ago.  He says that he became a citizen so he could vote (he was tired of taxation without representation... wasn't there a war about that?!?), so that the entire family had citizenship in the same country, and other equally as noble reasons.

Noble Schmoble.  Now I know the truth - he just wanted an excuse to take part in our great Thanksgiving weekend traditions without feeling ashamed.  This weekend he:

  • Decorated our house with more types of Christmas decorations that I've ever seen ("but I got them on sale after Christmas last year for 75% off" he claims)
  • Got up at 4:00am on Friday to hit the early specials, and came home with something we didn't really need (although I do admit that the new vacuum does pick up the dog hair better than old one did, and our kennel club will be thankful to get the old vacuum to use in the club building)
What could be more American at holiday time?

  1. Go Noble Husband! I won't be satisfied until I see him on the news trampling people at Wal-Mart in a Union Jack t-shirt on the day after Thanksgiving. Or hitting them on the head with a tin of Spam or the complete collection of Fawlty Towers. I'm going to tell the childen this photo is actually a picture of the outside of OUR house...
    What do the dogs think of the deer?

  2. I'll have to give the husband the Fawlty Towers idea - he just might use it to jump the queue next year.

    The dogs were ok with the deer. The first Christmas we lived in this house, our neighbors had similar lighted, moving deer. It drove Maggie crazy for a few days (meaning she barked at them A LOT) - then she decided they weren't a threat. Since she doesn't bark, the boys figure it's ok.
