A Visit to the Enchanted Forest.

IMG.jpgIMG_2.jpg IMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpgIMG_8.jpg IMG_3.jpgIMG_10.jpgEvery year my husband and I drive to the Enchanted Forest for the Christmas light display. Although it doesn’t change much from year to year, I still look forward to this tradition (much like that of our river boat cruise). This year, Geoff picked me up from work at 9 pm, then we drove to McDonalds for a quick drive-thru supper. After we ate, we headed to the Forestry Farm to see the light show. With full bellies, a warm truck, and a beautiful display, I was so happy and feeling very festive.

I wish that Christmas could always feel like this. I wish that we could resist the stress that usually surrounds this time of year and instead only feel peaceful, warm, full, and the tiniest bit drowsy. Well, I wish that for myself at least. :-)))



  1. what a great night! Happy holidays

  2. What a great night and a great tradition.

    The older I get, the better I am about choosing to not partake in the crazy. (But it’s still sometimes really hard.) When I was a broke fresh-out-of-college student, I asked if my family could do no gifts, and since then, even on the years where we do do gifts, everything is so much smaller. For the first few years of this change, I’d feel really guilty day of and kind of sad day after, but I’m hoping this is the first year where that part has changed too. (Man it takes a long time to change.)

    • It sure does take a long time to do so.

      What a wonderful story, I love when bloggers share bits of their lives with me! I would secretly (well, maybe not now) like to do this with my family as well. We seem to grow in size with each passing year, which only adds to the cost. I think that for adults, eliminating presents will also eliminate a lot of stress. But, we will see what the future holds.

      Merry Christmas!!

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every waking and spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
