Candy Cane Lane

2 days until Christmas...In Arizona, Lily and I used to pile in our wagon, and we'd walk around our neighborhood looking at all of the Christmas lights. In Wisconsin, things are done a bit differently, and piling in cars is the preferred method for looking at Christmas lights. We could have piled in our wagon, walking is allowed, but who in their right mind would want to walk when it is 24 degrees outside?!? Tonight we headed to Candy Cane Lane in West Allis to check out nearly 300 homes decked out for the holidays. There were all sorts of colorful lights, inflatables, and one house even had a dinosaur. On 95th Street we ran into who else, but Santa Claus. Lily finally talked to him (without tears), probably because she was strapped into her car seat and he came to my window. Nonetheless, she told him what she wants for Christmas, and she will sleep a happy little girl tonight (at least we hope since she still has a cold and can't breathe very well). Guess the third time is the charm when it comes to her visiting Santa this year. We were mesmerized by all of the decorations, and wanted to find more houses to look at, but with all of the excitement to come in the days ahead, we thought it best to head home and rest. Wishing you the merriest Christmas ever from our decorated world!
