On the tenth day of Christmas...
Tonight was our annual Christmas lights scavenger hunt. I've had SO many people ask me what in the world that is. I come up with a list each year of different lights we look for - snowman, 3 animals in one yard, blinking lights, music with lights, etc. - and we start out looking for all of those things. Tonight we added in jammies and hot chocolate for our trip.
James and Will spent the afternoon with Grandmama while I was at my teacher Christmas party so they were ex.haus.ted. This was Will at 4:30 this afternoon:
So he was a FABULOUS little one to eat supper with. I thought our night might not happen...but he rallied at the idea of HOT CHOCOLATE!
I told Eddie while we were driving around that this is the FIFTH year we've been doing this. Five years ago we weren't marking off a list, but we were trying to get this cranky little thing to realize that SLEEP IS GOOD.
It works like a charm with him:
But not his brother who isn't EVER interested in falling asleep in the car:
We marked almost everything off our list tonight and had a great time listening to the Home Alone soundtrack. It was a fun night!
