Going Shopping...

Some of you may have figured out that I'm CDO.
It's like OCD, but the letters are in the proper order.
When I do something, I will just keep at it until it's up to snuff.
"That's good enough" isn't a phrase I use.
Now, obviously when you deck your halls, you also want the outside to practically scream, "These-people-are-holiday-crazy-and-if-you-think-this-is-over-the-top-wait-until-you-walk-INSIDE!"
So armed with 18 feet of pre-lit garland, clusters of shatter proof ornaments, and some wonderful wire edged ribbon, we set out to trump all of the neighbors and establish ourselves as the house to which to aspire!
My Merry Minions twisted and spangled between sips of iced cocoa (85 degrees, people) and fractured seasonal tunes with slightly altered lyrics. No, I will not give you examples. 
Some of you have toddlers on your laps.
As our glistening handiwork took shape, we got excited to see the glorious result!
 
Up went the ladder!
Up went the eldest Minion!
Up went the sparkling mess of creativity!
Ooooooooo, swirls of glittered ribbon in sumptuous swoops!
The neighbors will be mad with envy when this is done!
A little adjusting and tweaking...

...and the crowd goes mild.
Guys, we need some stuff. This is pathetic.

Headed for Big Lots, Walmart, Publix and Dollar Tree, BRB.
If not back, avenge death.

While you're waiting for me to get back, there's a GREAT party going on for you spray paint aficionados.
