a little date driving around to look at christmas lights!

this weekend was a good one.  it was a real solid weekend.  it was the first time in a long time that we didn't have anywhere to be and we were able to get caught up on a majority of our to-do list.  we cleaned the house, finished christmas shopping, wrapped gifts, baked cookies for our coworkers, and even managed to relax a little too.  it was so nice.

one of our favorite things to do around the holidays is to look at christmas lights.  on sunday night after dinner, we took a break from our to-do list and hopped in the car to drive around to look at christmas lights.  we got a coffee to share, played christmas music in the car, and wore our pajamas!

some of the houses in our area really go all out, it's pretty incredible.  the weather was so nice, and traffic was not bad at all.  we ended up driving around for 2.5 hours and we really covered a lot of ground.  it was such a nice little sunday night date!

^this display is really crazy.  two neighbors combined forces to decorate their houses and their yards, both of which are completely covered in lights.  what's really neat is that you get to see the display from the front and the back since there is an alley which runs behind the houses.^
^this house and the one next to it have actually won awards for their displays.^
^all of the displays at this house are hand made, and yes . . . they do have live animals in their back yard!  two sheep and two ducks, to be exact.^
love, laurie

Wow, your area has some beautiful displays. The lights are plentiful.
That should put everyone in the holiday spirit.
