Candy Cane Lane

As we have for the past several years, we had Christmas Eve dinner with the Shannons. This year we were joined by the Steiners as well.

Since we had the three girls present, after dinner we put out our boxes of toys for them to choose from.
Several have found a new home. Horses (not the little ones with the stable – we kept those), games and puzzles. We even tempted the adults with a few pieces.

Don’t worry, Goodwill still gets a boxful, along with a bunch of clothes, and some other odds and ends.

And then it was off to Candy Cane Lane.
Always good for a holiday stroll, this year was better than most as it was dry!

The gangs all here, and some are pictured.

There is always a theme to the centerpiece – this year it is the Nutcracker.

Here are some of the decorated houses. Any time you see a sign, it says “Peace”.

Our favorite over the years. In the past this list actually had a naughty and nice side. We thought it was funny because one of Carl’s brothers name appeared on the right (naughty) side. Now they have removed the decision, and added some more up-to-date names.

We walked through, but several choose to drive through. As a regional draw, this is the normal site on Christmas Eve approaching to drive.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

    Glad you could walk through because that traffic looked awful. We used to have a neighborhood a bit like this in Puyallup called Twinkle Lane.
