Christmas Lights

Loren and I have a tradition of going to look at Christmas lights each year. We don't look for just any lights though. We are looking for the most outrageous and goddy looking houses. Here are the one's on the this years list. We made it a double date by taking our friends Justin and Amanda out to Nampa to our favorite restaurant. Then we started by looking at this house in Nampa. The lights cross the street onto the neighboring property, has a working 21 foot tall fariswheel, a lit up igloo, four working train sets, and to top it off; Santa was in the igloo passing out hot cocoa and candy canes. It was totally worth the drive.After looking at the amazing house in Nampa, we wanted to show our friends the neighborhood that had lighted trees along the drive and almost every house was lit. This is the best house out of them all.We then headed up to the hill. You can see this house from anywhere in Boise. The back yard is decorated in an angel. Sorry the picture is so blurry, but we were far away without a flash.
This is the view from the front yard. There were cars lined up all the way down the street, so we decided to get out and walk. And good thing we did.
This is the view of the front yard on the left side of the driveway. This is the view of the front yard on the right side of the driveway. We couldn't believe our eyes. They had everything and anything with a light on it. These houses were great. I can't image the time and energy it takes to put it all up and down, but just think of the electric bill. I do believe that these houses will be a tradition every year.
