Lights, lights, lights!!!

Another great date night!  But, I'm beginning to think every night is date night in the Hood.  Sometimes, it's just date night in!  :)  This was a such a fun date night....we went to Hollywood Studio's at Walt Disney World to see the Osborne's light display on the streets of America!  The Osborne's (not Ozzy) are from Little Rock, Arkansas and after proving to have the most impressive light displays in the US, they teamed up with Disney to make it even more exciting.  I have been wanting to go see the lights all month, and with Christmas quickly approaching, and our calendar getting full, we decided to go! 

It has been quite cold here....no really, it has....27 degrees cold!  So, we layered and pulled out our ski jackets (which haven't been used in over a year), and headed to the park just to see the millions of lights synchronized to almost an hour of Christmas music.  We had such a fun night, and were surprised by the intermittent "snow" fall!  Here are some pictures so you can see how extensive the lights are!

Our attempt at a picture of ourselves!

Someone else's attempt at a picture of us....at least ours wasn't blurry!
And, I thought it would be helpful if you could get a little taste of the experience, so thanks to YouTube, you can check it out here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UySCUo_ek4&feature=related  This still does not do the display justice, as lights are all up and down the side streets, and they are also lit and synchronized. There is also a huge Christmas tree between buildings on the right that is lit too! 

We ended our night by meeting friends for coffee at a local coffee shop.  It was so nice to warm up, and the peppermint latte I enjoyed was amazing!!!  We hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas season!  We are especially enjoying getting all of your Christmas cards with pictures in the mail!

Thanksgiving...as promised!

I know I am behind!  It has turned out to be a hectic week?!?!  I'm not sure how quiet weeks always seem to end up that way! 

So, before I move on with more blogs, and pictures of Christmas at our house, I thought Thanksgiving pictures were past due!  Now, back to cooking and grocery shopping!  We are hosting game night with our community group tonight -- looking forward to it :)

Breck not too fond of snow!

Light snow in Kentucky!

Little family picture :)  haha

Attempt at a Christmas card picture for Todd's parents.....clearly not a good time of day to take pictures!

Cooking Gluten Free!

I just had to share what I have been doing all day!  Cooking like crazy!!  I am so tired of limited gluten free options, and dinner being an ordeal some nights because of it!  Now all of this food is freezer bound and ready for an easy, re-heatable dinner in the near future!  I must also say...I love my labeler!!!
