A new tradition

What a crazy few days we had! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to jump back into my escape. Between stuffing myself like a turkey, watching too much football, and wearing out my car's horn due to the holiday drivers, I am exhausted!

We made our annual trek to my mom's house for turkey day. I say trek, but she's only 5 minutes away! Other than the 6 hours of listening to my midgets play my mom's electronic keyboard, good times were had.

We continued our turkey day traditions by hitting the mall Friday morning. We don't go out super early, but we do find some good deals. Even though we don't go hog wild and buy everything in sight, again it's good times.

I also think we may have started a new tradition - lights. No, not mine. As much as I would love to have all the Christmas stuff out the weekend after turkey day, it just isn't going to happen. I need to hire a maid in order for that to work.

And a personal organizer, and a chef, and a nanny....


Enough fantasizing. Back to our hopefully new tradition. There's this house around these parts who like to decorate. Nothing to extravagant. Just a few inflatables, some music, and a few lights. Their light count is somewhere in the ball park of 260,000. Can we saw Grizwolds?


Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself...





Just by chance I looked up their website to find out the hours they have the lights on. Saturday was the night they first flipped the switch for the season. I loaded the kids in the car, in their PJs, picked up my mom, and off we went.







Thank you Steel City Christmas for giving us a new tradition!


Until next time....

Hubby has decided that when our business takes off he is going to invest in a lighting system like that. I think it is a cool idea if you don't overdo it. On youtube there is one house that had over 640000 led lights ummm yeah bit much lol

I think it's great some people enjoy decorating so much. Personally to me, it's more work than it's worth. Yet, I can fully appreciate the ones who do :D

I love going and looking at Christmas lights. Unfortunately, there aren't many near our house that decorate. It makes me so frustrated every year. I can't believe the lengths they will go to on Halloween, yet do NOTHING for Christmas.

Sounds like you had a nice Thanksgiving!

We saw a few lights after Thanksgiving and it was nice to see them up. My little one really loved the lights and was sad when it was over.. Have a amazing day..
