Christmas Begins!

On Monday night we went to Angus Barn to celebrate Derek's grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary.  Wow!  That is impressive.  Congratulations to the both of them!


Take a look at this picture...Look closely.


Does anyone notice the elf in the upper left-hand corner?


How about now?  Yes, The Angus Barn had live elves partaking in their Christmas festivities.  That, I was not expecting.

Last night we went to see the Lake Myra Christmas Show.  Check it out online.. Lake Myra Light Show...It is really cool, even with the man that talked entirely too much.  It is three houses, and one computer that run all of the lights.  They are timed to the music and they go pretty fast!!  We had a blast, all packed into Derek's truck and listening to Christmas music.




And a video to try to do this masterpeice justice...

Christmas is such a great time of year because there is so much family time and everyone is happy.  I love it!  I hope that you are enjoying your time with your loved ones and having a safe and happy holiday!

I fly back to Chicago tomorrow to brave the freezing weather and get to see my family for a whole week!  I cannot wait to see them!!.
