I take pictures as it occurs to me, and this time of the year is no different; so, no particular obligatory Christmas pic.

My little man and I suited up and went walking the other day, to check out one of the Christmas traditions that I enjoy in our traditionless non-Christmas season.

 Bring on some outdoor Christmas displays that make you stop, stand, and stare!

First we saw this reindeer with a moving head, I’m not sure what the other animal is; through a gate on our way from home, and over the gate on our way back.

Then we saw the most spectacular one I’ve seen this year so far. Oh my word! Whilst the other one was a ‘look at that’, this was definitely a, ‘WOAH, CHECK THAT WOWSER OUT’. I moved back and parked the buggy for us to get a better view. It just felt good to be there; I could see myself sitting on its front lawn and chilling for¬† while. My picture doesn’t do justice to the display.

And then this one, with quite a few Father Christmas figures, with different moving lights, including running reindeers.

May – my #12daysofparenting code word – I assume that the house owners don’t mind these pictures being taken? I figure they know it will draw more attention than usual and that folks like me might take some pictures.

I must say that I’m quite chuffed with what my camera captured; and thanks to picmonkey for their ‘exposure’ editing tool.
