Sleeping Off a Bender or Just Deflated?

Am I the only one who finds the deflated yard decorations a little bit creepy? You know the ones....the ginormous Santa Claus or Frosty waving manically on the front lawn. I was driving through the neighborhood this morning, and there were all these flat, sad looking collections of nylon on the ground everywhere. They are bad enough when they are inflated and lit up, but it's just sad when they look like they've been massacred in the night.

I'm more of a white lights and classic decorations kind of girl, so forgive me if I sound a little sarcastic.

I'm with you. I'm a classic decorations girl as well. Plus, I think it must get annoying to have to reinflate them all the time??

We drove by an inflated snowman flapping in the wind yesterday and my Lauren said, "Mama, it looks that snowman is signaling for help!" So, we're with you. Give me white lights and candles in the window, wreaths and trees anyday but as for the inflatables...tacky, tacky, tacky. (Especially the inflatable spiders on our neighbor's roof this Halloween.) See? You got me on a roll!
