Today our family Advent activity read “Bring hot chocolate to see music Christmas house.” Sounds silly, but the kids immediately knew what it was. There is a house that is only a few blocks from us that puts on a Christmas lights display to music. We go every year and the kiddos can’t wait.
The kiddos made a special card for the family who puts on the show every year. We wanted to let them know that this is a Christmas tradition for our family and we appreciate all the effort they put into it. I tried getting a picture of the kiddos putting it in their mail box, but felt a bit like a stalker. So as hard as it was I walked away without a picture.
The kids watched the light show with the windows open on the van, radio blaring and drinking hot chocolate for quite a while. They even sat down on their lawn for a bit. Eventually the kids got cold and they moved into the van to listen to a few more songs. So fun! This is the first year that they had 3 houses all linked together. I still like the original house the best, I think that it will always be my favorite.
Hope you enjoy the Christmas lights show!
