We had soooo many cars tonight. The line backed all the way out of our subdivision with wait times from 30 to 45 minutes BEFORE you got up to the display. Wonderful...and terrible for some. We had folks traveling all the way from AUBURN to come see the display! War Eagle man! Thanks sooo much for coming out tonight!
Because of the traffic, we will have to shift our playlist to a shorter list. From 7 till 10pm;
"War Eagle" - by the Auburn University Marching Band
"All I Want For Christmas" - by Mariah Carey
"I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day" - by Casting Crowns
Because we are trying to be "Neighbor Friendly" and considerate of our neighbors, we have found it necessary to shut the show down at 10pm. It is just too much traffic for this late at night. I am very sorry, but we do have to be considerate of our wonderful neighbors.
Toys For Tots
This is such a blessing. We received 12 presents tonight...and $231.00, just tonight! That is fantastic for us! This will help out so many children. Now tonight was the last night we will be taking presents, but we will take donations if you wish to give. Honestly, several people offered donations and I actually told them it was ok...just coming out tonight was enough for us. They insisted that we take the money. MANY people did this tonight.
I choose Toys For Tots several years back to honor my father who was in the Marines. I think the Good Lord honored and blessed ME tonight by having so many good people come out tonight. I am truly blessed. Thanks so much for sharing your time with my family tonight.
Last by not least... I have two wonderful daughters who helped me tonight. It sure was nice tonight spending time with them running back and forth with traffic tonight. They knew Dad had a bad foot which didn't help in running back and forth. So not only did they wear themselves out in helping, but they are still at work in the kitchen cooking for our family gathering tomorrow. Again, truly blessed ;-)
