And You Thought YOUR Husband was Crazy...


Steve told me yesterday when he started putting up the Christmas lights that it would be "blog-worthy".  I don't know.  He must be reading too much Middle-Aged Mormon Man or something, but I guess he was right, because here I am...blogging about it.


Leave it to a man to take his own life into his hands to put up Christmas lights!


Let's get a closer look shall we?  Yes, that's a rope that he's dangling from and nothing else.  He even trusted me tie the knot!


Not right....but at the same time, just so Steve!

  4. Urk! I read this post from behind my hands and between my fingers. Can't wait to drive by some evening to check out his handiwork!

  5. When I was growing up my dad would put up the Christmas lights the same way-only he was trusting his rock climbing shoes-no rope!

  6. My husband was thrilled when his sons got old enough to take over the light-hanging duties. I wonder what we're going to do this year now that the last one left for college this fall and isn't coming home for Christmas.

    (Actually, I know what we're doing. We're not hanging lights from the second story roof! And we're going to go visit him for the holiday.)

    I'm sure you'll enjoy your festively-decorated house!

  7. It's a good thing he isn't afraid of heights!

    Does he need to borrow our crane? We have two - one goes 45 feet in the air the other about 100 feet. We also have loaders that go about 25 feet in the air.

  8. That is my hubby on a daily basis, he owns a Christmas light company and in our prayers at night he says "thanks for letting me not fall our that roof" That is how I find out that he almost fell off! Scary

  9. This really scares me. I know one sister in a stake I once lived in, whose husband fell off the roof and has never been the same. She felt like she lost her best friend. And there is a sister in my ward whose husband fell off the roof and died. Both men were in their early 50's. There are a lot more important things in this life than Christmas lights.

  13. All my husband said about the picture was "why is he using a hammer? he should be using clips" (as in multipurpose clips or christmas light clips or something). Hope it all turns out alright!

  15. "Reading too much middle-aged mormon man"???
    Is that possible?

    I can't stop laughing at how Steve has the rope wrapped around his leg a few times - probably more for your benefit than his.

    Tell him that MMM concurs: This was truly blog-worthy.

  16. So funny! Why do men always want to "rig" things? I'm always teasing my husband about wanting to "rig" everything in sight. Must be a boy thing. ;)

  18. That's not the first time I trusted you to "tie the knot!"
