Christmas Lights

Last night my family caravanned over to Athens, Texas to see the lights!  Our first stop was Whataburger!  You should have seen the worker's faces as all 17 of us tromped in to eat!  Hilarious!

Then it was off to the lights display.  It was amazing!  I've been through several Christmas light parks, but none like this one.  It had more wooden Christmas cutouts and lights than I have ever seen.  It took us 45 minutes to drive through it all.  And there was SO much to see!!!  Here are some pictures of our evening.
Tunnel of white lights

So many snowmen!

Lighted displays over the water

Tunnel of multi-colored lights

Castle scene from Cinderella

Cinderella and her coach

Tunnel of blue lights

The Christmas park church - I love how Santa is kneeling in prayer by the door.

There was an entire town of Bethlehem and the manger scene

A HUGE display of dolls!!

The green tunnel

This is our car-full!  Tennille, Grant, Mallory, Jack, and I all rode in the back of Mama and Daddy's suburban!!!  FUN TIMES!!!

We ended the night with a stop at Braums for ice cream!  MMMmmm!
Kristin decided this needed to become a family tradition.  I couldn't agree more!  We had a blast!

We took our chilren there on Friday night last week!
I took more than 100 pictures on my Nikon and THEY DID NOT STORE!!!! I was able to go back and review them while we were there, and we paid the $5 for the Santa booth photo. But when we got home NONE if the pictures were on my camera! I'm still sick over it.... I'm sitting here envying your camera. My son was flirting with the house of dolls! My favorite was the Cajun Theme!!

Such a wonderful family tradition. I agree!
My very favorite is the tunnel of white lights.
Thanks for sharing a bit of your Christmas with us.

Merry Christmas!
