Christmas Is Coming



The weather has been so warm (60) that it has been hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner. Alice and I have spent a couple of nights looking at Christmas lights. The first night we went to Rhema  Bible College. They have one of the largest light displays in the nation (over 2 million lights). It was beautiful. Alice has a video clip on her blog. They now have horse and buggy rides, hot chocolate, and funnel cakes. We have been going there since the kids were young. It sure has grown over the last 30 years. You can see it on YouTube.

Tonight we just went in the neighborhood around our house. There were a lot of beautiful homes. It was nice just spending the time with Alice.

I looooove driving around looking at the lights. Now it is just my husband and I if/when I can get him to go. I am an ooo-er and aaah-er. It is best if I go alone because then no one's lack of enthusiasm can dampen my spirit.

Yes, warm here too. This year I have made it a point to walk the neighborhood at night to see the lights as well. Hugs.

I have to admit it is so warm here too - it seems weird. Glad you are having a nice time with Alice.

I can't believe Christmas is already here as well. I just LOVE driving around to look at the lights. I've done it 4x this year already. hahahaha :) It seems like there's more out this year than I've seen in a long, long time. Anyways, it's good for me as I feel close to my father this way - something he used to do with us.

Sending hugs and warm, loving holiday wishes. :)
