Sunday Snapshot~Callaway Garden~Fantasy in Lights.

Sunday Snapshot

Yesterday the whole family headed down to the Pine Mountain Area to Callaway Gardens. Their light show is awesome, once you've seen those lights all other light shows fail in comparison. Callaway started this tradition back in 1992 when my oldest was 3months old and we went that very first year. The light scenes started out in 1992 with only 4 scenes and now there are 18 scenes, over 8 million lights and it stretches out over 5 miles. They start hanging the lights in September.  You can either ride the trolley or your car. We like the trolley best so we all piled in at 6pm, our appointed time. Instead of gifts this year, a trip to the light show was Honey's gift to the whole family ~ a great gift to me is time with the family making sweet memories.Shek and I snapped a few photos...mostly Shek did the photo taking...I even snapped some with the Iphone too.

 Zach, Honey, Gam and Pop
 Karlie is the only one looking at me
Me and my girls

 The kids each picked out an ornament or a special something...Jolie has a 'thing' for nutcrackers so she loved this one. She calls him a quacker.

Zach got the  2011 Fantasy in Lights ornament

Karlie decided on a glittery green nutcracker...Shek couldn't tear himself away from the Auburn University Shades and I didn't snap a photo of those.
I tried to get a really sweet photo of all 4 kiddos in the Callaway Christmas Village...this was the best of the bunch. One day...I will get them all looking at me with beautiful smiles eyes open and everything and actually get the photo! LOL

We had a great family outing at Callaway Gardens and a nice supper at a family diner before hand. Thanks, Honey for an awesome Christmas trip!
