Christmas lights at Denton Ridge

This year was our first time visiting Denton Ridge Christmas lights and we had a great time. Beautiful lights, live Nativity Scene, reindeer barn, and Santa of course! Can't leave out the carolers, singing Christmas carols around the piano while sipping hot chocolate and spiced cider. If it is chilly while visiting the Christmas village you can warm yourself by the fire and roast marshmallows. If you want to see over 50,000 Christmas lights grab your friends and family and make your way to Linden, NC. You will know you are close when you see the glow.

Clickin Moms Blog Circle l November - Creating Drama with Light

The theme of our Clickin Moms Blog Circle this month is one that I looked forward to all year. I have a long list of lighting techniques I hope to try. While decorating for Christmas I decided I would mark one off the list by creating heart shaped bokeh. Can you see the hearts? 

My Christmas decorations are my favorite! I feel like they add a visual element of love and peace. 

 Visual proof our tree is full of love! We pick up ornaments throughout the year from places we visit, celebrate milestones, and sometimes we create one or two.

 A Santa musicbox my husband gave me our first Christmas together. Since then I have collected a few others but this one is still my favorite!

 Our tree is never complete without a bell or two or three.
