Since David and Adam were little Angie has put them in the stroller and run the neighborhood looking at lights. This is something that all three look forward to doing. And in fact this year the boys even requested they do this in November. So, Angie took them the last day of November through the neighborhood on a run looking at lights. It is a special time just talking, listening to Christmas carols, and running in the dark. The moon is bright, the lights twinkle, and the boys giggle with each other along the way.
It is one of the best memories and somewhat bitter sweet because there will be a time where they will no longer feel like their home away from home is our stroller.
So, here we are one more year sharing the season in the simplest way!
We think this house has the best lights in the neighborhood - because it is home!
This year because the boys have been reliving life on a ranch or farm almost daily we opted for a gingerbread barn rather than a gingerbread house. From the moment Angie brought it home the boys wanted to put it together and decorate it. They spent a couple of hours doing this which is longer than they have ever been in invested in our gingerbread house making. And they are proud of the product.
