Christmas Lights

Since we had to run out and fill our water cooler jugs after dinner tonight, hubby decided he wanted to treat the girls to some 31 Flavors.  I told him since we were going out, it would be a great time to drive around to look at the Christmas decorations. We loaded up right after we ate and went up to the neighborhood that we do our Trick or Treating in. We figured they go all out for Halloween, so hopefully they would for Christmas.

We were not disappointed. Yes, there were lots of houses without even a wreath on the the door, but it was all good. There was one house that was hooked into a radio stations music and the lights danced with the beat. We sat in front of it for a few minutes then another car pulled up and blocked us. We left and circled around and came back and parked and decided to get out. Little L was excited to get out, so excited that she dropped that damn pacifier that was in her mouth. After checking out the light show, hubby put her back in the car and Oldest and I searched for the run away paci. It had actually rolled underneath the car and we didn’t find it until hubby went to turn it around. We drove for sometime through the neighborhood, pointing and talking about all the pretty decorations. L became a little chatter box and went on and on about some of them. Her favorites were Snowmen and Santa Clause. Eventually we made our way back out and went to fill up the water jugs. Then it was time to get some ice cream. Nothing like a sugar rush an hour before bedtime, right?  She was definitely ready to hit the hay when we got home. Her last words before drifting off was “Me take a nap now.” And she was fast asleep. 🙂
