Ross-Ade in the house!
Mama gave me my 1st puzzle of 2018 in honor of our NYC trip. Let the clock begin! Attempt #1
Finished in under 6 hours. Took me a bit longer b/c I tried not to use the box top. I’m a glutton for a challenge.
Question… which is next, popcorn or Purdue?
The holiday spirit had me wanting to round out the year to see the lights at the IMS.
Nothing will ever compare to @Newfields. This is more geared toward containing your child in a car and not making them walk. Or in my case, containing my adult-xmas-light-judging friends! A few ones I liked…
After we left IMS, we drove around Speedway to see the best decorated houses or worst decorated house of the Westside. This one earned a solid 10 out of 10!
The tree is lit!
The holiday cards are arriving!
Even the reindeer is here!
A Christmas Carol is playing!
Merry Christmas to all!
Watch out! It’s a YETI!
Had the great pleasure of introducing K to Yuletide and getting my 2nd dose of the show with these minions!
Fantastic! Fabulous! Such a great snow, I mean show!
As we waited for our Ch-Uber, watch out for the grizzly!
Who’s the winner of the 2017 Motown Blues Christmas contest? Say hello to Motown Philly!
It’s all about the details people! We passed out CD singles offering autographs throughout the night.
EWolk wanted to borrow my wig and get a photo with the Crew.
This might not have been the Motown LA expected, but damn we are creative!
What allows you to eat a fridge full of food?
Let’s get our fat asses up and run 4.6 miles on Turkey Day! Previously. Can’t believe it’s been 5 years since I did this race. No complaints because traveling is fun! They are really trying to increase participation at this event. A wave start and bring out yer balls! Me trying not to get hit in the head…
After hosting our first amazing family Thanksgiving, it was time to end my Mother’s plea to see the tree lighting at the Circle.
If we are going to do this, let’s do this! I scored nearly front row seats to the show. We had some good laughs about how close we were.
Bundle up! It’s cold when the sun goes down, even at 55 degrees!
After 1 hour and 55 minutes of stage shenanigans….
We FINALLY got to see the tree get turned on!
That tree inspired me to get our tree up and decorated. Bought new ornaments at the end of season last year. Had to lean on the OCD to figure out how best to use them.
A little twine and the starrs!
Happy holidays! Let the present wrapping begin!
The starrs aligned for a great downtown weekend!
Started our adventure with the Evening of Promise Gala benefiting the American Lung Association. Attire was black tie with a bit of whimsy. Silly Hoosier felt this was whimsy.
Since my dad and CS’s dad have both fought and are winning against lung disease, we were especially thankful that we could support this cause and still have our fathers in our lives! Great reminder to live every day to it’s full potential!
After the event, we were treated to a wonderful stay at a friend’s condo to prep for a Colts brunch before the game.
Not only did we know the hosts of the brunch, the best family East of the Wawasee Boat Company was there with us!
Great memories made again!
Since the pumpkin display was such a hit, I was ready for my next outdoor holiday experience. The Indianapolis Museum of Art has been promoting Winterlights @NewfieldsToday. Let’s check out the preview party!
The experience starts right away as you approach the front doors. I’m always intrigued with the ever changing ceiling decor in the lobby.
JS and her minions joined us to witness the glow of a million bulbs light display!
This experience was stunning from the first step!
The lights were coming from everywhere.
A stunning 50 foot Christmas tree made completely of toys! Those big circles are kiddie pools! Very clever.
The Lilly House had animated lights to music.
Positively fantastic! Already can’t wait to see how they out-do themselves next year! Go visit!
