So where do we go? To the Lights of Christmas at Warm Beach - which let the record show - IS NOT WARM! Warm Beach is a conference center and camp in Stanwood Washington. They string up over a million lights on their grounds and it is a-maz-ing! It's like someone took a bedazzler to every tree, sidewalk, and building.
We usually stay over night - as our kids sometimes need a warm up spot. The other reason - the thought of getting back in the car after driving 2+ hours there, walking around for 3ish hours, and then driving home another 2+ hours makes the eggnog curdle in my tummy.
The next day we hit up the outlets and finish off our Christmas shopping - oh and we attack Tar-jay like a fat kid on a smartie. Make way people EJ is in the building - I really should have a person shopper with me saying things like, "No that sweater makes you look fat - walk away! Yes, I know it's only $5 but you look like you are auditioning for the role of Mrs Clause. No! NO! You do not need a battery operated blinking light sweater - BACK AWAY FROM THE SWEATER." If the husband said that I'd probably attack him with the battery pack from such a sweater. So he hangs out in the audio visual departement - because apparently the tv needs another cord.
Quite the side trip there - Ho Ho Ho - and we're back!
So we go, we see lights, we eat kettle corn, and candied pecans - that are still warm - gah! So good!
This is where I would add a bunch of pictures from last year but apparently I deleted them off my lap top and moved them over to the back up hard-drive - I am just too lazy to get off my butt to go get them. Click on the link above - they take better pictures than me anyway ;) or watch the clip below.
