Favorite Things--Day 22
Christmas lights. We love Christmas lights. Our house is a clear Christmas light house, but we enjoy all kinds. We try to keep the "looking at Christmas lights" tradition within a few days of Christmas. So last night we drove through our first neighborhood of the year. Unfortunately, the kids had been celebrating Christmas pretty hard at school and at a friend's house that we had visited for dinner, so I think by the fourth block most of them were either asleep or in a deeply groggy state. We have it on the schedule tonight to go see the BIG display in a park in a local town. And, after our brief views last night, I'm tempted to buy some colored lights on after-Christmas clearance. I've got my eye on a lighted tree for our front porch.
