I love the lights, I love Christmas. The love the season.
We are going to go to Bentlyville in Duluth after Thanksgiving, the beautiful lights. Thanks for sharing Jill. I so love it when you do that.
Take care and have a blessed evening.

Oh, it looks like a fantastic time. I love Christmas and holiday traditions. Your girls look like they had a great time :)

Wendi said...

Oh my that looks like fun!

Donna said...

You all look like you had such a fun time. What sweet pictures! It makes me think of our trip to Germany to the Christmas Markets. This certainly gets me in the Christmas Spirit, that, and The Polar Express movie that Tim, the kids, and I watched. I guess some things, we never out grow. :o)

Looks like a lot of fun! I love to see lights at night, they are so magical. The weather has been wonderful here too. We are cold today though, brrrrr. Hope you have a great Monday!

i wonder how broxton is going to act with all the lights this year! :)

Great pictures...I especially like the 5th one! So cute! We go to a similiar place called Candyland in Hershey, PA close to Christmas to see all the lights. I always hope it's not too chilly out...who wants to ride the scrambler and freeze?! Love all the light pics...my camera (or maybe it's me) doesn't capture the lights that well.

Thanks for putting me in the spirit! The girls looked like they were having so much fun. I appreciate your previous post also about helping others, we just noticed our YMCA has the donation tree up so we'll be getting some things for the people on there, I just hate how Christmas can make you feel so good but so sad (when you think of what others are going through) at the same time.

By the way, if the recipe link doesn't work, I would be happy to email you a copy or snail mail if you prefer. :)

Wow, those lights are incredible! I wish we had something like that here!

Cheesemakin' Mamma said...

Oh wow! We don't have anything like that around here. We do have a living nativity that is pretty cool though. Looks like you all had a wonderful time getting into the Christmas spirit!

Looks like a wonderful time!!! I love all the photos. My favorite one is the one of the girls with the fallish background (Hayley wearing the hat). They are both so photogenic.

Thanks for sharing your lovely time.

Love,
Patti

This will be a great family tradition. The lights are beautiful. We have traveled to Lakemont Park in PA for light on the lake. It has always been fun for the kids & me to. The beautiful full size nativity is wonderful. The smiles on the girls faces say it all. So glad you all had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing the photos. Yes Jill you are right. I am already planning how to decorate the outhouse for Christmas. You have gotten to know me pretty good. Blessings!

What a great tradition! I wish we had a Christmas village around here!
I usually take the girls and we go thru the Jolly Holiday Lights display. But that gets old. It would be nice to have something new.

Sara said...

That looks like such a wonderful place!!

Camille said...

The photos of your girls together are precious...such blessings!

Have a great evening.
