Christmas lights

One of my favorite things to do every winter is to drive around and look at all the Christmas lights displayed throughout the neighborhoods. There is something so peaceful about it and definitely brings out the Christmas spirit.

This year none of the boys wanted to join us, but Pete and I headed out last evening and even grabbed a little plate of Christmas cookies to nourish us along the way. :)

I went online to see if I could find some great light displays in our area, and we headed out to several of those. None of these pictures really do it justice, but most of the houses put on quite a 'show' with music and all.







I love this Charlie Brown play house that is down the block from us.


But the highlight of the evening was the tree in Bloomington that can be seen from Cedar Avenue. Truly amazing and spectacular to see up close in person!!



After our light viewing we stopped to get an appetizer and drink at one of our favorite spots, Chianti Grill.
And then came home to start our Christmas present wrapping.
It was a perfect evening.
