What Mom Saw

So, on Monday I told you that Mom & her Sister
went to another Tea & Tour,then went to see Mindy.
Well, on the way home Sunday night,this is 
what Mom saw.

This is a big house in Halifax that was really decorated.
It had lots of lights and little scenes.

A "Charlie Brown" Nativity

This is the back of the house

A collage of house lights

Even tractors were decorated!!

Lights in front of a downtown hotel.

Lights at Parade Square in Halifax

Parade Square from the street

The tree with City Hall in the background.

A ship called the "Mattea" in Halifax harbour.
It was getting ready to move to Bedford Basin 
as a big,windy storm was due to blow in on 
Monday. It WAS a huge storm too!!
Many communities outside Halifax suffered much damage.
We were indoors,cozy and dry!!

We love the lights your Mom and her sister saw! Very festive!

Glad you stayed safe and warm in the storm. We're due for a big storm on Friday.

We love the lights!

There used to be a little bungalow at the top of Main Avenue (around that area, in Fairview) that did their house up like the Griswalds. LOL. People would go up there just to see it -- we certainly did! Some would get out of their cars and go closer. It was fabulous. Mom told me a few years ago that he doesn't do it anymore (or perhaps the home owners moved or passed away, I don't recall).

It looks like a lot of careful work went into those lights. They are very pretty.

We hope that the damage from the storm is able to be quickly fixed.

Oh so beautiful! We love lots of Christmas lights - mom would decorate everything if she could! There is a place near her old house that has tractors and other equipment like that and they decorate all the ones out front with lights - she loves it! We think all the pictures are so pretty!!

We really like the tree with the blue lights. We have blue lights on at our house. They are on the front and back porch and we have them on every night.
