Baby’s First WinterFest of Lights

Last night Carolyn and I took Laura Marie to see the WinterFest of Lights in Ocean City.  It was a special night.  Carolyn and I have gone together to see the lights for 12 years in a row.  It was so wonderful to have our little six-month-old baby daughter with us!

The baby really liked the lights.  She was all bundled up so that I could only see her eyes and nose.  She stared intently at the lights, only occasionally glancing around and looking at me with an expression that seemed to say, “Are you seeing what I’m seeing?”  She was awed.

After the ride through the lights we took her inside to see the Christmas trees that various organizations decorated, and she stared at the colorful lights and sparkling tinsel.

Our baby is starting to be introduced to family Christmas traditions!  We’re really excited about creating new Christmas traditions with her.

  1. That’s great, Nathan. Family Christmas traditions are among the most heartwarming moments possible, I think. Every year I pick up Jazlyn to place the star on top of the tree. This year she’s about as TALL as the tree, so it’s not as easy as it used to be. Still, we’ll give it a go as long as we can. I wish I could have seen Laura Marie – that sounds incredibly sweet.

  2. Nathan, just reading this filled me with joy!

  3. I loved reading this too. One of our favorite family traditions is to get a new ornament each year that signifies something special that happened in our family that past year. The year we bought our house, we got a house ornament. Last year, we got a baseball ornament (I mean, come on, the Phillies WON THE WORLD SERIES if you hadn’t heard). It’s so fun! This year, btw, our ornament is one from Salisbury Christian School since the boys started school and I started working there! We’ve created special memories around those ornaments! 🙂
