Tuesday night we took the kids to look at lights. I loved doing this as a child with my family, so it's something we've incorporated into our family traditions. There is a street nearby that goes all out every year. They also collect food for the Sacramento Food Bank. So we got all bundled up with coats, scarves and "glubs," made some hot chocolate, grabbed some canned food and headed out. We parked the car and walked around the little neighborhood. Drew led the way, pointing everything out and we could not keep up with him! The kids loved seeing all the decorations and were ready to jump back in the car with blankets and hot chocolate when we were done. We've got a few free evenings free before Christmas so we may try and find another neighborhood to visit.

This is the inside of someone's garage! The whole thing spins around and a train goes around it.
