WELCOME! Austin and I headed out tonight to take some pictures of the lights around town. The other boys were at home- bah humbug on them! I do not have the best camera but I hope you still enjoy the pictures. As we were headed into downtown there was a beautiful full moon.
This is the big tree in front of the Hyatt.

This is a house that we admire every year. You can not tell by the picture but the large tree covers the front door. It is the most unusual and beautiful thing. As you can tell by the leaning small tree, it has been windy here. This is the tree inside the Mast General Store. It looks like they put 50 boxes of tinsel on this tree. That is all you can see! A must see tree for all those tinsel haters!This is the carousel downtown next to the hospitals festival of trees.These are some of the hospitals trees. We also have a trolley that you can ride on and it was lit up but we were not able to get a picture.This is one of the small churches in the area. It looks so pretty but once again not a good picture. We have so many beautiful churches here. One on every corner. There are literally hundreds of churches in our county. We did have a picture of the horse drawn carriage that you can ride in but it will not load :(The lights a Bob Jones University are breath taking! So very beautiful. No picture could ever do them justice.

This is the walking bridge at the front of the campus.

The BJ emblem.

A tree at the front entrance.More BJ lights.This is the large nativity that is on top of one of the buildings. So breathtaking.All the nations flags.Thanks for visiting my town. I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Christmas.

Everything is so beautiful! You are so lucky to live where you live. Our little town decorates pretty cute, but the big city we are next to is too "politically correct" to show any nativity scenes or even do very much lighting.

Thanks for sharing the great pictures!

Merry Christmas! Sharon

Thanks for stopping by my blog -- nice to meet you! I haven't been out to BJ since they built the new entrance. I enjoyed seeing your pictures of all the lights on campus.

Our kids are close to the same ages -- I have all boys, ages 23, 20, and 14.

Sondra, thanks for coming to my blog and leaving a comment. I see you live in a houseful of men. I only have my husband and one son (who is 23). I am sorry about your baby girls. That had to be very hard.

I don't have a lot of time today, but I will be back to check out your blog.

God bless and have Merry Christmas!!!
