|Christmas when I was 4 or 5. I still like pink, but I no longer cut my own bangs (bad idea!!)|
I LOVE driving around looking at Christmas lights. We used to drive around nearby neighborhoods for an hour or two on Christmas Eve looking at these lights when my brother and I were growing up. It was neat seeing everyone's creativity. Since moving to Indiana, I've learned that some people synchronize Christmas lights to music. That is so cool! I can't believe I'd never heard of this before last year. Needless to say, we've been to see a few of those light displays this month already.

|This tunnel of lights was awesome!!! It's moments like this I still feel like I'm 5 years old LOL|
Decorating for Christmas was a BIG DEAL in our house. Mom had more than one tree, tons of ornaments, strings of lights, extra light bulbs for when the original ones burned out, garland on the spiral staircase and lots of other decorations around the house. It also took a long time to put them up. We also had lights on the house, decks, trees and shrubs outside.
Family gatherings are a staple of Christmas vacation. Social media has made it easier to catch up with everyone more than twice a year, but nothing can replace actually being in the same place together and having a good time. It's always something I look forward to.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
