When our kids were young we always packed them into the car and headed to Coralville for the Aisle of Lights the weekend before Christmas. They put out luminaries in the neighborhood and houses are decorated for Christmas. It is a tradition we all enjoyed. We did this once or twice with Payton, our oldest grandson, but, as there are so many of us now, we just don't have a vehicle large enough. So Bud rented a 16 passenger van for the evening. We all met at Pizza Hut and enjoyed some pizza and visiting.
Christmas hats were required!
The little ones enjoyed the musical Christmas hat.
The big ones were busy horsing around!
We had a great time, however we were disappointed in the lights, or I should say LACK of lights. We voted to do this again next year, but we'll be sure to scope out the best lights ahead of time! We missed Travis' family as he had to work that day.
We LOVE Christmas! Maybe it is because of the wonderful memories we each have of Christmas when we were children, maybe it is because of the family time, I'm not sure. As much as Bud might sometimes pretend he doesn't like all the decorations, he really does. He plans for the next year of decorating before the current year is even over.
Bud does the outside and I do the inside. Unfortunately neither of us is much of a photographer, so this is the best I could get.
We have snow now, so it really looks Christmasy at night. We love our little Gingerbread House all dressed up for Christmas. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad
