Fantasy Lights

Sunday night we took in a local holiday light show for the evening. This light show only opens one night a year as a walk thru light show, typically it is a drive thru show. However, we enjoy walking it way more. Driving is so hurried - walking allows you to stop and enjoy, talk about the light displays, answer questions from your child, listen to carolers, sing Ruldolph the Rednosed Reindeer at that display and visit with your company. Much nicer and not hurried at all!

I'll admit we meander, but I am amazed at how many hurry through this kind of activity... especially after rushing to get there I can't imagine rushing to get done. We like to be a bit slower and take it all in, something I really hope to instill in Holly... which will be hard this day in age when everything is rushed.

We had a really nice night and wonderful company! Afterwards Grandma Annette invited us all out for dessert and cocoa. So we met up and enjoyed a nice night sipping cocoa and visiting some more. Made for a great kick off to the holiday season!
