TOP RIGHT, elf hat hanging at A Kid Zone, tractor and wreath at Cody’s in Odell, Columbia River Insurance’s annual porch light row, and a lighting display onWy’east Road in Odell. Below, Scott and Lisa Tennants’ home on Belmont offers a striking trick of the eyes: the tree only appears to be poking through the living room roof.Wrote Lisa Tennant, “Our ceilings are only 8 feet high so it wasn’t too hard to find a tree big enough. Scott, and my son, Connor, got on the roof and figured out how to nail the top half of the tree. It looks a little funny on the inside to see a tree where the trunk goes right up to the ceiling leaving no room for the angel ornament on top. But we are having fun with knowing there is a ‘bigger picture’ that makes sense looking in from the outside of the house.”
