O! Christmas Tree...

I remember as a kid, so looking forward to piling in my parents car and riding around the city, looking at all the Christmas lights.

It's a habit that we started doing as adults - some of my "kids" from church would come over and spend a Friday night at the house. The boys always loved piling in the back of my hubs king cab and off we would go all around the city, looking at the lights and sights and wonders that Kansas City has to offer.

I still look forward to Christmas lights and I'm ready to take a stroll down Candy Cane Lane and look at some Christmas lights.
I'M NOT AFRAID TO THROW A FIT TO GET MY WAY, EITHER!
