Meadow Lights

Every year, we take the kids to Meadow Lights.  It's a tradition here and we drag them all with us.  Young and old alike.  And, one of Yana's friends got drug along as well simply b/c he was at the house at the time.  hey, we make no exceptions.  LOL.  It was sort of an impromptu decision just b/c we knew the following week would be too hectic to go.

This was a day where Sofie hadn't taken a nap.  Can you tell?

Nik beyond excited waiting for the train to arrive.

Our three youngest checking out the lights.

The girls of course wanted their picture taken.

And Summer mad she didn't get in w/ the first group of girls so wanted me to take it again.

Safe to say Nik loves his little sister.

The lights are beautiful.  Really are.  Better in person as a camera can't capture it.

And of course we had to see Santa.  Or as Sofie calls him 'Ho, Ho, Ho.'  Yet, she's still scared of him.  Likes to high 5 him and move on w/ the candy.  You're not allowed to take pics inside unless you are buying them.

 I just think Alex looks so much older here.  And no, Summer's coat is not small.  Goofball pulled her sleeves all the way down of her sweatshirt underneath. 

So, we were trying to line people up to get a picture of them all together.

Umm, yeh.  That's not working so well, is it?

No one is missing.  Alyona is hidden behind Sofie.  Notice her legs?  LOL.  Hey, all I can say is we tried and older kids amused us for the most part.

And, the main reason we all come here anyhow...the candy!  Of course.  Only part of the old fashioned candy store.  We go every year.  And yes, eat some on the way home.  Go home, and watch Christmas movies.  

We were supposed to go to the Christmas Parade this past weekend but the down pours got the better of us.  Each year, we do a few things for Christmas that have become little traditions I would say.  Hope we can keep some years to come and one day, take our grand kids here.  Right?  We're done w/ kids, kids, aren't we??  I'm waiting for Warren to come screaming upstairs.  LOL.  Anyhow, great time at Meadow Lights other than some little teen attitude in the beginning.  Pleasant time and that's what we shoot for.  More to come but need to head to bed.  Guess I need to explain soon what's going to be happening w/ Chaos Manor.
