Tonight is this year's debut of the annual tradition of viewing the Christmas lights with the "I'm just a girl" kids!
Once a week, during the month of December - I take the kids out and about after dinner and we visit different neighborhoods and towns viewing the light displays.
They get dressed in their cozy clothes (a.k.a pajamas), and we make a stop at Dunkins for hot cocoa & munchkins - and they get to sit back, relax, listen to Christmas music and "ooh" and "ah" at the lights.
I love it too, because it's a great way to wind down the week -- and who doesn't love Christmas lights?!?!
No "bah-humbugs" allowed in this girl's world. There's enough crankiness all year long to go around; for just a few weeks I want to be able to enjoy the happiness, excitement and pretty decorations that make us forget, even if for only a moment -- all the ugly things that exist in this world.
