Christmas lights a creepers dream.

Christmas lights are captivating…don’t you think?
I really do think I could be a creeper….if I wanted to.
I mean, I do creep on my kids facebooks.
It’s my job…..it’s what I do.
Many a time I have been on their facebook, checking out their friends and contacts,
when a friend of theirs will message them.
I will have to answer the friend of my child with….”Hey, this is Freebirds or Challengers mom creeping on their facebook, didn’t want you to think they were ignoring you.”
They usually answer with….”LOL….my mom does the same thing”.
Then they disconnect rapidly and probably email and text all their friends a “MOM alert”….I am so onto those kiddos.
I’m sure this helps my kids socially…..hee hee.
I’m talking about a different kind of creeping……….
For instance…..
The Hazard family took a ride through town the other night checking out Christmas lights….
We loaded up all the cars………Minus the Buckeye clan…..whom were sadly missed…….
Then we drove around town to houses that we knew had went all out with their decorations.
It’s a family tradition………..
It was beautiful…………..
but enough about that……..
Decorations Shmecorations……
The cool part was peering into peoples windows …………that was cooler than the Christmas decorations.
It was so pretty……..you could see their lamps on……..people milling around……their decor stood out….you could see details……little mini worlds.
Romeo and I were walking home tonight from another dinner out……and looking into my house at night was just like when we were driving around town…..
So I knew I needed to photograph to explain my creeping self….and also I could take pictures of my home and not get arrested.
I love the way a house looks from the outside looking in…….especially at night.
It’s like the Diorama’s that we talked about before.
I used to love looking in viewmasters as a child………..I LOVED them……..I still do……you felt like you could touch the picture……see the details……I would look for different details in each little photo as I would click through them…….

Looking into a house at night…….it’s like you can see the personality of the people that live there……………
~Click~
It’s so pretty……………..
Must be a really pretty person that lives here…..
Oops….that would be me….. ; )
~Click~
I really love it though.
If I were a professional photographer I think I would take pictures of peoples houses from the outside but looking “inside” at night.
I mean….now that’s a family photo.
It’s the way our memories work….the way we picture things in our past.
At least it’s the way I do……..sorta outside looking in….
Know what I mean?
And I truly think I could really creep on people if I wasn’t worried about my children having to bail me out of jail.
So I’m going to be aware of that risk and just start in our “Rattlesnake Alley“.
I mean….I don’t want to intrude on strangers……now that would be weird creepy.

My family will eventually thank me…..

Their little diorama worlds.

I would be doing them a favor!
Capturing their lives like they probably didn’t know they wanted them captured.
Poor ignorant people.
I need to show them……..
I would be like the Robin Hood that stole money but gave it to the poor.
He gave “robbers” a good name……..he was a good robber…….
I would give creepers a good name…I mean….if they were good creepers.
I would peep in peoples houses but not in a gross way……..not the trenchcoat peeping tom kind of peep.
The only flashing going on there would be from the top of my camera. Know what I’m saying…..
That’s so not creepy or invasive!
People would love it when I showed them later the photo’s I took of their house at night through their windows when they weren’t aware!
I’m sure of it!
I could be famous and  rich, with people calling me every day asking me to creep on them and come peep in their windows when they least expect it to capture their memories.
They will probably put my work next to Thomas Kincaids or someone like that!
This is so my calling!
Unless I get arrested first…………
So I guess I better just start with family .
Allrighty family…
You are so gonna thank me.
But be warned……
no running around in your undies……
I’m on the prowl.
Love,
Me
