Spreading a little Christmas cheer. Last week we had the opportunity to walk Christmas Tree Lane. For those of you not from the area, it is two miles of homes with beautiful lights and displays. They close the lane on two nights during the holidays for people to walk through.
Merry Fishmas! The local high schools paint murals each year to display along the path. This is the one The boys' school did.
Here's Nate helping out the elves. It was a cute display.
This one of my favorite displays. The toys are animated. That is a Mrs. Beasley doll in the rocker. I don't know if any of you remember Mrs. Beasley. But, I still have one of these dolls from when I was about two years old. And she is well loved! She has long since lost her glasses and her pull cord doesn't work. But she still makes me smile. And this display makes me smile every year too.
New this year. A few of the little boys' favorites.
Walking in a winter wonderland...
The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the SNOW! Yes, in Fresno. Ok, so it wasn't real snow. But, Nate was lost in the magic. My little boys have never seen it snow. They have only played in the snow after it stopped falling and it was safe to drive in the mountains. (There is a slim chance that it will snow here next week. It only *snows* here about every ten years. Fingers crossed.)
Even the big boys felt the magic, a little.

Sheri - Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I have a give-away once a month, so you may be able to pick up a free bag then! Just check back often for the contests. Love this post -- what a fun family activity. I'm originally from the Bay Area, I can relate to the header on your blog. Love the beach! Thanks again for stopping by...

I had hoped for snow, the real stuff, today -- but, alas, it's not to bee.

We drove down Christmas Tree Lane the other night. I still love it. Amazing tradition that's been going on for generations in my family (and I'm sure many others).

Loved the photos!
