Michelle and Robert Spieler pose with their daughter , Gracie, in front of their home. The house the Spielers purchased recently on Stratford Place in Country Club Hills is decorated with a big red bow. The long tradition of the big red Christmas bow was started by previous owners, Nell and Madison Earl Bullard decades earlier. When the house was sold, the bow and instructions to hang the bow were left with the house.
