some christmasy stuff.

every year we go to see the temple lights with our friends.
it always ends up being a super-cold night. 
and the kids are always too loud and rowdy. 
and then we always go to Baskin Robbins afterward. because we're not cold enough.
the kids love it, and it's become a fun tradition. it's interesting to see how palm trees and cacti can be made to look Christmasy.  we helped put up the lights a few years ago - that was really fun. Connor's job was to plug strands into an outlet and put them in a "good" or "no good" pile. He felt very important :)

It's fun to see the palm trees and everything covered in lights. They look more artsy!

I'm sorry, but did you just say "super cold night" and you guys are only wearing sweatshirts? Ha!

Pretty! And what do you mean cold? It snowed in Alabama last night for crying out loud... grumbles... just not at MY house! I miss snow.

Ok, I'm glad other people are teasing you about the cold because, well, you're in LA!!

Those lights are so cool looking! Are they really that amazing in person or did the camera just add some unique dimension that is not really there?

naw, in real life, they looked COOLER!
