Griswold's NOT

Last weekend my sister in law, Meredith, said we had to bring Bryson over to play with Ally and Colby and see their yard. She said it's going to look like the Griswold's! Rusty, my brother, had gone crazy with the blow ups.
So last night we took our granson over to see. Turns out Rusty did a great job spacing the blow ups around the yard and it looks good. The kids had a wonderful time running around looking and playing!
That is one of the fun things about Christmas!! Seeing the delight in a childs eyes!

That is wonderful and looks like so much work! I can remember how much trouble it was just trying to get my daughter's little pool inflated last Summer. Hope these have a cord or something that means they self-inflate! Oh yes, and they would need to be tied down too, at least the pool just needed water to stay put Lol!

I bet the kids love being around them though, so festive and colorful!

Children are so beautiful. Seeing their eyes and hearts just beam with love for the holidays always melts my heart! Have a fabulous weekend!

PJ said...

Wowee! That looks like an amusement park. I bet those kids had a ball playing in their little wonderland.

Love the wee ones during the holidays!!!

Those are some wicked cool blow ups! Some of the ones I have seen are not cool. Those are fabulous!

My youngest is 7 and he is so excited this year! The older two don't "believe" anymore and have lost some of the wonder. I am so cherishing this last little bit with the baby boy!

Looks like great fun. The Christmas season is underway!

Ann said...

Oh how cute, it looks like a little Christmas wonderland. I bet the kids had a blast

Some of the people in my neighborhood would kill to have Santa on a horse and a train! I live in a very large subdivision and the neighbors have everything you can imagine - from the very elegant and traditional, to fun and tacky.
Seeing your pictures makes me realize that "it's all about the kids." :)

They must have had fun seeing the decorations! :)

Jen said...

Those look great! Makes me wish I had a yard to decorate.

Matty said...

They look like gems. The innocence and delight in their eyes is something to treasure.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Holidays are all about the kids and yours look VERY happy.

The decorations are so fun, how could they not ook great!

Oh Gayle! How lovely. Wish we had this stuff when I was growing up. It must be so magical for the kiddies.

And you reminded me of one of my all-time favorite movies: National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation! That Clark Griswald... what a character! But I think I even liked Randy Quaid better. He was a riot. I'm going straight to NetFlix and putting that in my queue!

Families are what lifes all about. have tagged you tomorrow. Ignore it if you want. Will be back.

Holly said...

My son asks for blow ups every year...not yet! Although they are fun for the kiddos!

Theta Mom said...

To see their delight, isn't that the BEST?!

Gayle, this is such a cute idea. Please tell Rusty how much we enjoy the pic's on your blog. I've never seen this before. I'm doing real well. Just have to take care and let the healing process do it's job. Love to you all, Aunt Barbara

Well, isn't that just the coolest thing ever. What fun!

Margaret aka: Fact Woman said...

I have a secret desire to be the Griswolds. Maybe not with blow ups but with the old plastic figures from the 1050's. I'd love a yard full of them. It looks like you had a great time.
