Christmas Tradition: Enjoying Christmas Lights

A Central Texas Christmas tradition Brian and I look forward to as much as the kids do is enjoying a village of Christmas Lights at BLORA in Belton, Texas.  

Visiting the lights at BLORA is super cheap and a fun thing to do as a family.  This was our third year to experience the BLORA lights.  Typically, we drive an hour down to Belton and eat dinner before visiting the lights.  It costs only $5 per car, which is a great price for such a fun experience.  We bring our own Christmas music to sing to as a family as we slowly drive through the lights.  The kids area always mesmerized.

About halfway through the lights, we always stop at "Santa's Village" to grab some hot chocolate and gigantic chocolate chip cookies.  It's a highlight for the boys and a nice break before our ride back home.

After hot chocolate and cookies, we get back in the van and put the boys in their pajamas so they can fall asleep in the car on the way home.  Brian and I love the hour long ride back after visiting the lights.  Every year, the boys fall asleep, giving the two of us quiet time to chat - precious time!!

We are so thankful for all of the work and money that goes into this Christmas Light display.  It really is such a joy for our family every year.  This year was no exception!
