Christmas Traditions

Every year there are a couple of places I love to visit.  The first is....
A visit to Snowflake Lane!
This is just the main street outside of the mall, but it is decorated with lit snowflakes, people in costume walking around passing out candy canes.....

 and then the music starts and the drummers arrive and line the streets.  It doesn't last very long but just being outside with all the lights and Christmas music is just so fun!

The Bellevue Botanical Gardens are my hands down FAVORITE place to visit during the holidays.  As you walk through the gardens, 1000's of lights have been made into every flower, plant, tree, or shrub you can imagine...it truly is wonderful!

The pumpkins and grapevine were two of Lucy's favorites!


  1. Isn't this time of year just magical? I love the pics of your fun family traditions! Your little Lucy is a beauty :) Merry Christmas!

  2. What beautiful holiday traditions. Love all the beautiful lights.

  3. Those places both look so festive and fun:)

    I recognize that "look" in the second photo. I get that too!

  4. What a good looking family!! LOVE Lucy's boots ;)
