We made plans with Cara & Clint to go check out some of the neighborhoods in West Seattle who put on quite the display of Christmas lights every year. We lucked out and on the way over to West Seattle it started snowing! Big heavy flakes. I’m currently typing while wrapped up in a down blanket looking out at the fresh snow – that is likely not going anywhere. It’s not even supposed to get above freezing until Wednesday – when it’s supposed to snow again!
For those of you who know Colorado snow, we call this snow “cement.” It’s very wet and heavy – which makes EXCELLENT snow balls and snowmen. Scott got a little carried away in someone’s front yard and made a snowman.
Another beautiful house with lights. I love the white lights on a tree coated with fresh snow. Serene.
I think this house was everyone’s favorite. Merry Christmas Charlie Brown! You can barely see on the left of the picture, but Snoopy’s house was decorated just like in the movie. I also didn’t get the piano in there with Linus (just to the right). They have a 50ish foot tree that has a bright star close to the top as well. Beautifully done house!
After we finished with lights, we stopped by a yummy place called Shadow Land in West Seattle. We had some warm comfort food (hello, poutine – thank goodness for the French Canadians) and started out in awe at the snow that was still steadily coming down. Great night with C&C!! I thought this storefront looked so perfect with the snowy (not flocked) garland and Christmas lights.
