It was a quiet foggy evening in Blue Stem, when I headed to city hall to pick up the guest judges. During the drive back to our neighborhood, the guest judges asked me how many homes had been decorated? I wondered if they were thinking that the judging was going to be a short, quick and an easy job with only a hand full of homes to look at. They did not think in the beginning it would take them a little over an hour to select the 4 winning homes.
City Manager Eddy and Asst. City Manager Drake were quite surprised when we turned into Blue Stem. So many had decorated their homes for Christmas! It was evident as we began driving through the neighborhood, the number of individual households that had put a lot of thought behind their decorations and had also spent quite a bit of time putting the decorations up. It took these gentlemen a little over one hour to pick their winners. The decision was certainly not an easy one, as there were more than 4 homes that had done a great job!
A BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE:
FIRST PLACE- 1712 SW 31ST – JOHN & DONNA F.
SECOND PLACE- 1600 SW 31ST TERRANCE & CHANTAL L.
THIRD PLACE- 3217 CAREY PLACE – TODD & SUMMER K.
FOURTH PLACE- 640 SW 33RD – RYAN & ASHLEY M.
A video and some photos of not only the winners, but a number of Blue Stem decorated homes, will be featured on the Blue Stem website in a couple weeks: www.bluestemridge.org "Our Neighborhood" page
I want to thank the judges for the time they took from their busy schedule to help with our very first Christmas Yard of the Month. I
encourage you to drive around our neighborhood one evening with your families to enjoy the lights.
Merry Christmas and God Bless!
