So let’s go.
Our first stop is an Armadillo Santa.
Not going to touch this one.
A wimpy sprig.
Mistletoe Wreath. Gotta lay on the ground to get under it.
Since I did a complete tour of the Trail of Lights last year, this year is an overview. If you would like to check out last year click THIS LINK. Here is Santa giving us directions to the entrance.

We also did a Twelve Days of Christmas hunt last year. Here are all twelve.
A display of flowers and longhorn cattle.

I hope you enjoyed our view and I wish you a happy week. Now enjoy more food and listen to the music.
