Here are a few pictures of our 2009 display. We are two homes side by side. I have decorating my mothers home for 32 years. My wife and I bought the house next door ( the one on the right) 5 years ago. This is our 4th year decorating our home. We have about 1,000,000 lights that all get turned on by a total of 66 20 amp breakers. It comes down to two people me and my wife decorate both homes by our selves.

Thanks, Bobby & Bobbie[ATTACH]26723[/ATTACH]

Wow one million lights, man that is a lot of lights......must be a record for residential decorating.

Unless you meant 100,000 lights, and that to is a lot.

Great job.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. We have four big trees. One cedar tree that is 40' has about 10,000 c-7's. One clear blinker to every three reds. The 76" pine tree this years has about 45,000 mini lights. The maple tree with the white lights has about 80,000 lights. The other maple tree in the front yard of my mothers house has about 110,000 mulit lights and 65 strobe lights. This tree has been wrapped with light for 26 years. We take the strobe light out and all the c-7's off the cedar tree every year. The cedar tree takes about 10 hours to put the lights in each year. As for the other trees. The minis do stay up all year but every year between 1/3 and 3/4 go out have to be replaced. Squirrels are the the biggest problem. They chew the plugs off like acorns. We pick them up off of the ground all summer long.

Thanks, Bobby & Bobbie

For those of you who don't recognize Bobby & Bobbie, they were featured on TLC's "Crazy Christmas Lights" in 2006- which ironically is on TLC tonight right before the all new "Invasion of the Christmas Lights". Outstanding display and very touching reasons that they put in all that work. If you haven't seen the show, watch it tonight on TLC.

Great job Bobby & Bobbie!
