Tonight we started what we hope becomes a family tradition: looking at Christmas lights! Since Ryan's attention span is still pretty short-term, we just went to a small town near us called Maurice who is famous for their "Small Town Christmas". Many of the houses in town are lit and there is a very large display that kids will really like. Ryan thought it was "pretty cool" which is how he describes anything good.
My favorite thing was seeing my talented co-worker, John's, new painting which he displays on his front lawn in good weather. Check out the post on his blog, Paintings from a Small Town, for a few "in-process" pictures! It is amazing and I hope you get a chance to go see it this Christmas season!
