You don’t have to do this on a Saturday night, but it was a great relaxing way to end our busy day (and it’s free). I was a little bummed when we couldn’t find a sitter so we could go out for my friend’s birthday, but I didn’t let that get the total best of me. We ended up making a family night out by looking at all of the incredible Christmas lights. It’s amazing how much time and effort people put into their lights and decorations.
Here are a few of the houses we drove by:
I purposefully took a picture of this house because of the Grinch. I always joke with my daughter saying my husband is the mean Grinch.
This is a lot of work!
I thought the tree was really cool. Creative!
I loved this! Sometimes we get so caught up in the hustle bustle of Christmas that we forget why we celebrate it.
We stopped by the grocery store on the way home and I picked up some ice cream and whipped cream. We came home and my 2 year old watched Rudolph, my husband played with the baby while I made these:
Wow, what a fun night as a family!
