We are the Johnson family from Cypress Texas. We moved into our home in January of 2005 and have been decorating it ever since. Before we lived here we decorated but nothing like we’ve done over the last 10 years! We do this for our community and friends and we hope you enjoy the shows!
Rachel is a freelance writer who has been published online and in anthology books. She is also a photographer who has worked on photo shoots since 2011.
Ryan is our Santa and the mind (madness?) behind our light display and pyro show. During the day he is the Development Manager for Texas Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists and one of the founders/Directors of Lone Star Holidays.
Rachel and Ryan were married in 2000 and have been decorating ever since.
Kierstin is our oldest daughter. She’s 20 and is in college pursuing her degree in Elementary Education. She loves little kiddos and can’t wait to graduate and start teaching. Currently she works full time at Goddard School all day where is a teacher for a pre-school class (she loves it!) AND goes to school full time. We’re very proud of her hard work and commitment to her career!
When she isn’t working or in class Kierstin loves movies and spending time with her boyfriend (that was very hard for Daddy to write!).
Hayley is our middle daughter. She’s 15 and loves music, painting and writing. She is definitely our artistic one! When she was 4 she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes which, as you can imagine, changed our family but also made us all closer.
Hayley’s love of music is varied and she’s been to several concerts with her friends. If you put a paintbrush in her hand she’s bound to paint something… sometimes on the walls of her room! We love seeing her creative side and are very proud of her grades.
Riley is the baby of the family, even at 13 years old. Like her sisters, she works hard at school and does very well. She is the one that will always play with the many pets we’ve had and is the “momma” of the three girls (just ask them, they’ll tell you!)
Her passion is softball, which she started in 2014. Having never picked up a bat se has now progressed so far as to have been a part of several championship team, an all-star team, played up a season at a high school level and is now a part of tournament/travel team the Houston Lightning.
And Our Furry Kiddos…
Our pets are very much a part of our family and it’s been difficult when we’ve lost them. The ones below have gone to the Rainbow Bridge (except Sookie (bottom) who moved on to a family with no other pets; best thing for her!) and there isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think of them.
