Christmas Week

Christmas week.
I love it!!
Each year,our Bible study hosts a Christmas party for our Adult Disabled group at our church.
It is just the best.
Our kids come home for it, we all pitch in and put together gift bags, buy pizza and salad and make the rounds around town to pick up the party goers and bring them in for some Christmas fun.
It is, by FAR, the best Christmas party ever.
No fuss, loss of giving, sweet receiving, fabulous singing, and merriment in it's purest form.
I'm not sure just how to put into words how amazing it is to share this time with this group.

On impulse last night, we loaded up the car and drove to an amazing neighborhood.

I think we walked for close to 2 hours looking at house after house lit up like Main Street in Disneyland.

It was about as crowded, too!
But just as magical.

We wondered where all of this is stored?
Then we wondered if you sell your home, is it in writing that you carry this on as a new owner? Because not one house wasn't lit up.

Maybe not all were as extravagant as this one, but there were lights EVERYWHERE!

All kinds of interpretations..

And of course, the Starbucks runs this week.
It's just a part of who I am...
and it helps with the wrapping I'm not getting done!

Hope your week is going well and your MOMENTS are piling up!

Join me on Friday-I have a sweet one to share with all of you.


  1. What a fun night out.
    We still need to go look at Christmas lights, I think this weekend will be perfect because the temps are supposed to drop to freezing!!!!
    It will feel like Christmas to me :)


  2. How fun looking at all the lighted homes. Makes me wonder how much the electric bill is, just my frugal nature coming out I guess. Hope your ready for Christmas, and enjoy "His Season",it's such a special time of year!!

  3. Oh this is just wonderful! made my evening Lynn:)
