After my nieces and Dixie played in the snow on Saturday, we ate dinner then went to the We Care park to see the lights. This is a magical place, and now that my nieces are older, I don't think they'll forget this experience. We started doing this with them a few years ago, and it has now become a tradition.
You can drive through the park...
If you walk, you get to go inside this garage, that looks nothing like a garage, and pick a stuffed toy off of the Christmas tree and drink some hot chocolate.
There are lots of photo ops
And of course, Mr. & Mrs. Claus are there passing out candy canes.
This whole place is a neighborhood that decided to do this for donations for one of our local charities.
There are also several little doll houses preparing for Christmas.
Better than a serpent or a dinosaur!
When I was a little girl, we'd always go to my Mom's family in Logansport for a get together. And they'd bundle all of us kids in a car and take us past this farmhouse, somewhere in the country, that decorated with thousands of lights for the holidays. Cars were lined up forever to see this spectacle. I've never forgotten it. Kind of like the above photos.
What traditions do you have with your friends and families?
