Catch the Spirit ! Day 34


What a long day ! Aren't they all !  It's so nice to see the spirit of the Holidays coming up in the form of  LIGHTS !  I just love the lights this time of year.  As you know, my favorite home to see is the house on SOOY Lane !

I had the most wonderful opportunity to meet the home-owners. Connie Havens and Charles Auchter. I can't believe I was invited into their home. How special was that ??? !!!!

Dec. 1st was the magical day to see the lights for the 1st time this Season......what??? No Lights !!!!!
Beautiful lights were replaced with Rain !  The lights don't go on in the rain and I imagine that there are just so many outside connections and things going on that it would not be good to run them in the rain.  Dec. 2nd..... rain.... Dec. 3rd....rain.... what a crock !

So tonight, on what would have been my Dad's birthday, I took a few minutes to go see the lights on this clear night ! I was once again, blown away ! A few new features added this year. The pics don't even do it justice ! From the precision of the dancing trees to the spectacular music and light show, the house on SOOY Lane is just in a league of its own.  If you are in this area, I urge you to visit the magical lights at SOOY Lane this Season .

Let me see how many times I get to venture over there. On the 21st and 22nd , Santa will be stopping by to hand out hot chocolate too !  
Don't forget the donation box outside. These funds stay local to families touched by Cancer.

Thank you Connie and Charles for sharing this beautiful vision with us! Thank you for inviting me into your home.  What a joy it is to see the lights. For me, it is so calming and relaxing. Tonight I ventured out there alone, to have my time with the lights and do my few minutes ...... I was in anticipation since Thanksgiving ! ( well really since last year... LOL)

....and the photo below is of the house next door. The only thing they have up is the light in this window..... I couldn't get that close but if you can focus on it , you will see it is the "leg" lamp from
 A CHRISTMAS STORY.....gotta love it...... it's FRAGILE ( or  FRA-GIL-A )  LOL
Talk again..... Catch the Spirit of the Holidays and venture out to explore .......
Enjoy !
