HBL and I took our little nuggets to look at the Christmas lights at our local Ethel M Chocolate Factory - they have a cool cactus garden there that they deck out every year:
Look! Pretty lights!
|Don’t you just love Christmas time?|
Entrance into the garden was free because they probably knew everyone and their mom was gonna break the bank buying treats in the Gift Shop (Smart, Ethel. Smart.)
And apparently, some of the light displays were in 3-D, but we didn't know. We knew something was up when we kept passing people wearing 3-D glasses. However, I didn't hear any ooh-ing and aah-ing, so maybe the effect didn't work as well as planned and we didn't miss out on anything.
|Is THIS in 3-D?|
No matter, we were über festive sipping on our coffees and hot chocolate, all bundled up in our winter hats and coats. Of course, this place being a cactus garden and all, the night wouldn't have been complete without a certain Monkey Boy poking himself in the mouth trying to "smell" the cacti. Don't worry, he's okay - when he drinks water, he only dribbles a little bit...
