A tripod would have helped to sharpen it a bit. Anytime you are shooting at night, some mechanical means of supporting or steadying the camera should be used since slow shutter speeds will be involved. Your exposure is just about right. The light display, itself, doesn't do much for me. It looks like they just placed light displays randomly about the yard and house.

If you still have the opportunity (rapidly fading, I know) go out and shoot some more and try resting the camera on top of your car or something else if you don't have a tripod. Take a bunch of shots trying different angles, exposures, etc. just for practice. This is the only time of year you get a chance to shoot Christmas lights.
