The December 2017 Decorated Yard of the Month belongs to Jan Kassen at 609 Newberry Drive. Here is what she had to say about her yard:

How exciting to learn that I won yard of the month for December! Christmas has always been a favorite holiday for me, and this year my yard has special meaning. The Nativity was handmade and painted by my mother over 40 years ago. Last year they decided it was too much for them to continue to put up each year and I knew it could not leave our family. As a kid, I remember neighbors driving by our house just to see the Nativity. This year, it has been truly heartwarming to see the same happen here along with families stopping by with their little ones while on walks to take a closer look.

I have called Richardson home for over 12 years and could not think of living anywhere else. I live here with my sweet Goldendoodle, Boomer. You can often spot him looking out my front window. When I moved here, it was really about location and charm of the homes. Little did I know that I would fall in love with this community. I am blessed with amazing neighbors that have become lifelong friends.

I hope this little gem brings some holiday spirit to anyone who passes by and puts a smile on your face.

Happy Holidays!
Jan Kassen and Boomer
