Bring the gnomes home

Original post made on Jan 8, 2009

Such a shame! We live near the Webers and always enjoy their Christmas decorations. Perhaps it's time to put up a few motion-sensor webcams, with warning signs, like the home up on Hearst has.

This story just breaks my heart. We had decorations stolen from our front yard last year, but thankfully none this year. I am glad to hear that the family will continue to display decorations next year as we did this year. Just keep remembering the ole saying "what goes around comes around" and those ppl who stole your knomes. God Bless and Happy New Year!! :-)

Gnomes have a way of wondering off on adventures then returning home.
Let's hope these gnomes go home.

This is sad and unfortunate--a light up santa was taken from out yard last Christmas. My two sons cried when they found out it was gone. Why some people think it is fun to steal is beyond me.
