Christmas Tree Lane





















When you live in the suburbs you get to experience events for the holidays that don't seem to make it to the more urban areas. And while I so miss living in a hip-happening place there are some local festivities that are pretty hard to beat. For example, while nearly everyone gets festive to some extent with lights and decor outside their home, a few neighborhoods in town really go wild at Christmas. We are lucky enough to live just over a mile from one of them and Chad, Maggie and I took the opportunity to check it out last night. Taking photos of lights at night proved to be a difficult task for us but here is the best of what we shot. As you can see there is no-doubt-the-world's-greatest-bow-of-all-time on one of the houses. Man, I would love to have one of those on our place. Also, you'll see the holiday wish-list that Chad and I have signed in years past. This time Maggie signed it and apparently she wants a pony. Other wishes on her page? Video games, a hot rich boyfriend, a genie, 100 more wishes, toys... Finally, one of the homes had this little dancing mechanical animal band which inspired some kids to have an impromptu dance party. Maggie said, "What? A dance party without me? No way." And she was off to get her groove on. That girl can and will dance to anything. Even to a dorky dancing mechanical animal Christmas band.

Fun photos. Looks like it was a fun night. I wonder if Mags will get a pony from Santa.

Our neighbors would be thrilled.

Poor little thing - where are her hands?

The jacket is a bit big but she doesn't mind. It keeps her hands warm.
