The kids took us around to see some of the Christmas lights last night. I suppose that makes us sound old. It does to me because I can remember driving my own tottering parents around to see the lights. The difference is that it was our car, and The Boy was doing the driving because he knows the area best. He does that everyday in his job — drive hither, thither and yon — so he knows his way around remarkably well.
Our main visitation was to the incredible house shown in the photo above. I suppose that every town has one; I know that Sarnia did, but not like this — not even close really. It's not a mansion, but it sure is decorated like one. It's the front that you see in the photo, but all parts are resplendent with yuletide colour — side, alcoves and the back.
The next photo is within the carport (open garage) where the blue arrow points (and while you're at it take note of the red arrow too, for I'll mention it later). You can see angels, the magi, and a village, and that is only part of what is in the carport. Then, around the side of the house there is breezeway which has multiple electric trains and even more villages, but you'll have to trust me on some of this because I balk at taking the necessary bandwidth to reveal all. From the breezeway, you can peer inside the house where there are numerous Christmas trees and a big screen tv with Miracle on 34th Street playing.
The above photo is a close-up of the train that the red arrow in the first photo was pointing to.
These were but three of the twenty photos that I took, but I thought they might help to get one and all in the holiday spirit although I don't suppose that many of you fine folk require much assistance.
One more seasonal WHOPEE! The first big snow is scheduled to arrive tonight and continue into tomorrow.
