The plan was to not go this year...but then, Lights of Christmas had a pay what you can night...so I figured, at a discounted admission, to go ahead and take everyone...after all, they really do enjoy it (I on the other hand, am kind of feeling done with the Lights after so many years - if you have never gone, and are local, I highly recommend it! I have gone for the last decade, and am just ready to take a year off, lol!)
Everyone was so excited. I was slightly nervous, but thanks to my wonderful FIL, who took everyone to band/choir, and let me get a good nap, I was feeling at least up for it!
Brianna, Callie and J rode the pony rides this year. Ashley decided that she didn't want to do it.
Everyone else is either too big or too little.
Then we rode on the train ride. They have a new caboose this year, that we rode in. Everyone liked it, Especially J, who had been telling us he hears a train since we got off the bus!
After that, we got some kettle corn, and headed inside to warm up and hear a story teller.
With everyone was able to feel their toes again, we were off to see Bruce the Christmas Spruce! The girls already know all his jokes, but still have fun going to talk with him!
On our way to each main event, we were looking at all of the wonderful decorations they have set up.
One of the favorite activities at the Lights are the mini donuts...made hot and fresh right before your eyes!
We stopped in to say Frosty, who was a bit too scary for Callie and J this year, before heading over to see the life size nativity scene they have set up.
I love spending time with my children! What a privilege it is to get to experience these things with them. What a wonderful say to start out our celebration of the birth of the Light of the World, than with a wonderful display of lights in His honor!
And just for my wonderful, hard working, amazing husband, there is a bag of mini donuts on the kitchen island waiting for you! Thank you so much for all of the hard work you do to provide so well for us. We love you very much, and you were greatly missed tonight!
