The Lights of Christmas, a Family Tradition

I love family traditions. It's the simple joy of yearly repetition, mixed with noticeable changes in the kids and all of us experiencing a familiar event in a new way. One of our annual traditions is The Lights of Christmas. I think I appreciate it more every year because I can see how as the kids get a little older, they enjoy it more than they did the year before.

Last night was a record breaking night for The Lights of Christmas. 8,723 people were there. How do I know this number??? Well, Paisley lost one of her shoes while we were there and today I called to see if it was turned into the lost and found. The super nice lady on the phone gave me that HUGE number and I told her about how much fun we had. 
We were in traffic for a long time on our way there so, we got bored and started taking strange pictures....
(note to self, do not tuck chin to chest, while taking self portraits) 

 Over one million lights and there is no way my photos will ever do it justice. 

 Train rides. :)

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a Child is born, 
Unto us a Son is given; 
And the government will be upon His shoulder. 
And His name will be called 
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, 
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 


  1. LOVED your photos. We love The Lights too. We didn't go last night. We went Sunday and are going over again tonight. Eric had to stop by the church last night, so he had to sit in the horrid traffic without the delight of The Lights. It looks like you were doing just fine being patient in traffic!!

  2. Looks like so much fun!! Great pictures!

  3. You did a great job with this Angela! I can see the awe on the faces of the kids.
    I have trouble imaging a traffic jam at Warm Beach, but if that many people attended the traffic really must have been backed up a long ways!!
    Merry Christmas to you and your family:-)

  4. Oh wow, this place looks amazing! I'm sure your little ones were just in awe!

  5. so many blessings! I also loved this entry in your blog...I think I will be looking at this page again and again...loved the way you wrapped it up with the scripture at the end too. thank you
