Candy Cane Lane

We had an extra fun ending to our Christmas Day celebrations.
A double bonus, if you will:
Mommy and Daddy requested a night out and, better yet,
a day-after opportunity to sleep past 6 AM,
so we brought our grandchildren back home with us.
Darkness arrived in Georgetown at about the same time we did,
so an exciting adventure visiting "Candy Cane Lane" happened.
Thanks to one of the more enthusiastic neighborhoods here in Sun City,
this street was full of fun and magic.
Each mailbox looked like this:

The little ones and Shoeless Joe raced from house to house,
glorying in the child-sized decorations spread on the lawns.

This golf cart's wheels kept spinning

and the red tree trunks were fascinating as they even made the children
glow in shades of red.
Sort of camouflaged, right?
As in: How many tree trunks do you see? 3? 5?

Gigi posed for this one--two angels and a pup, right?

I loved this picture--
my favorite gifts tucked in wrapped boxes!

Cash tried to hold the hand of this bright soldier.
Fun to find a world just the "right" size.
I'm not sure what Gigi was doing--
maybe practicing her "royal" wave.

All the running and squealing with delight helped use up the last of the energy of these highly sugared and frenetic little ones and they finally climbed back in the car to head home.
Ready for baths, supper and bedtime.
But first our wish as written here:
Merry Christmas, y'all!
