Polar Express - SUV

On Friday after we had a family dinner at Red Lobster we came home for a surprise for Charli Beth. We hid a golden ticket in her bed under butter cup her horse, since she always snuggles up to her first thing. I had been telling CB that anytime that she finds her ticket to come running to me with it and I would have her a surprise but she must be a good girl all day.
As she came through the kitchen doors I handed her a to go cup of hot chocolate and Daddy one to of course and out there door we all went with Bryar in tow to look for Christmas lights.
But boy are people scrooges anymore. I remember as a kid seeing Christmas lights at almost every home that we would pass by now they are few and far to come by.

Eventually we found the mother-load of all lights....

With Bryar crying, Charli Beth getting sleepy we ended our Polar Express adventure here and headed home. It wasn't much, but it was a fun little outing for us and she enjoyed it very much being that she is still trying to get me to hid her ticket so we can go on another adventure. Sadly, Momma is out of adventures until next Christmas!

What a cute idea. I agree about people not putting out lights. I took my nephew and we had to drive forever and then we never really found a great neighborhood full of them.

Cute idea! Yea it seemed like a lot of Scrooges this yr but Ryder really got into the lights this year. I love CB's expression, so excited!


Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
