Travelling abroad with kids

I love outdoor Christmas Lights, have done since I was a kid.  My Mum can’t drive so when Dad would visit, he would take us for a drive so that we could see them.  It was such a treat to be in Dad’s car looking at these beautiful lights.

 

 

Over the years more and more people are putting outdoor lights up.  I am now one of those people! Say’s me smiling!

 

 

Dad used to call me Mrs Clause.  I used to be like a big kid at Christmas.  But since Dad passed away things don’t feel the same. 

 

 

Christmas 2021, the first Christmas without him, I just went through the motions of putting the decorations up for the kids. 

 

 

But then on News Years Eve 2021, we decided to have a BBQ and I put Christmas Lights up in the back garden and it looked so beautiful.  I looked up at the black sky and I said, Dad, I hope you can see these, I hope you can see I am still trying.

 

 

The next year Mum said let’s light up my garden so your Dad can see them too, so, Christmas 2022 we had a Light Off to see who could light up our gardens the brightest.  Mum won, at least that’s what I’ve let her believe LOL.

 

 

So, here we are, Christmas 2023 and with tears in my eyes I look across my garden with the extra lights I’ve bought this year and I say Dad, I’m lighting up my garden for you! I hope you can see them in heaven.
