Twice per year, the lane is shut down to motor traffic and only walkers are allowed. We have made a family tradition of walking the lane. The kids favorite displays change each year (last year's post) This was Joshua and Brandi's first year to walk together (maybe this is the beginning of another generation...)
Nate was the only one who wanted his picture with Santa.
My pride and JOYs!
I hope it says something like Happy Holidays!
Jacob walked to Christmas Tree Lane from our house, about 1.5 miles.
Nate rode in the wagon. So, it was Jacob's turn to ride.
This is one of two by out high school.
Shawn is a junior. Go PATES!
Brian was pulling the wagon and i made sure to keep hold of Nate's hand.
Nate's fascination this year is with Rudolph.
And the only picture of me, lol.
We had just watched it a few days before.
Nate and I found hot chocolate, and Bumble Bee.
Santa's worshop always gets Nate's attention.
"because, it has another story."
I'd love to have a house like this someday, too.
Last year, the grand finale was the house with the "snow." That was all Nate talked about as we walked the lane. "I wonder if there will be snow." You know when you live where it never snows, even fake snow brings holiday magic; and Nate was not disappointed.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Traditionally, the evening ends with Starbucks.
