Enchanted CHRISTmas Gardens and LEGO Displays

At the beginning of December, my family and some friends went to a local garden where they had a self-guided night tour and the gardens were decorated with CHRISTmas lights.  It was a beautiful, crisp winter night and the scenery got us into the Advent and CHRISTmas spirit.  Here are some sights that we saw:

Can you guess what this tree has on it?

Did you guess glass bottles?  I loved this unique tree the best!

 Butterfly Garden Tree

This was a beautiful double waterfall design

Cupcake #1 was the only one who wanted to visit with Santa

The reason for this holy season

There was also a large room filled with thousands and thousands of LEGOs!  This was definitely a highlight of the evening. 

There was a huge hotel

There was a church

There was a parade walking through the streets and village

There was a CHRISTmas tree lot

There was a ski slope

There were STAR WARS figures around a CHRISTmas tree

There were boys and girls in LEGO heaven!

And there was so much more to look at!  We visited this room twice to see all the LEGO designs and details!

I give Joy to the World when I spend memorable and fun moments with family and friends!

what a beautiful garden lights walk!! and the LEGOs were awesome!!! Legos are Da Bomb!
none of my kids every wanted to talk to Santa.

Oh I miss Christmas lights. They don't really do anything like that here in the UK (that I have found). That is a favorite tradition that we miss. I also miss the church we used to visit that did a live nativity every Christmas. The kids and I were just talking about that today. Looks like your family had lots of fun:)

It looks like so much fun. I like the tree with the butterflies. Thank you for all the LEGO pics. My son just loves them. You have given him a few new ideas. I voted for you.

Hi Kimberly!
It was a beautiful night with the light displays. You never knew what was coming up next around the corner! Thanks for your comment and visit :) Have a blessed CHRISTmas!

Hi Anna-Marie! No Christmas lights? Hey, you could start decorating your house and then you would start all of UK doing the same thing :) Live nativities are special and I haven't been to too many of them, although our oldest participated in one as Baby Jesus when she was 6 months old :) That was special! I added a couple new pics to this post that I accidently left out. It's the tree with the glass bottles. Cool huh? :)

Hi Lynda! Yes, I like the butterfly tree and the glass bottle tree. Did you see I added the glass bottle pictures? The LEGO display was amazing and I'm glad your son enjoyed the pictures and that it will help his imagination to continue to soar! Thanks for the vote and I voted for you :)

Tracy - looks awesome. My son would have FREAKED out at the Lego room! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Melissa! Thanks for stopping by and commenting :)

Hi Tracy,
I love the bottle tree with the lights very neat. I have seen them in garden shows but never actually in someone's garden:) Hope you are enjoying the time off of school and finding some peace and relaxing time:) I voted for you:)

Hi Anna-Marie,

The bottle tree was neat to see since I have never seen it before. I've been making tray after tray of Bua Bark and pretzels, cleaning the house, shopping, (and blogging). I have lots to do still before Christmas Eve! I hope you are enjoying your vacation as well :)
