The Highlight Reel




Hi!
I can't believe a week has flown by.

Last Friday Mr. Ken and I celebrated
our 16th anniversary as some of you 
know, anyway that evening we went 
to our local Arboretum and enjoyed
the Holiday Luminary walk.





The weather was warmer than last year 
but we were glad to have our big coats
as the evening progressed.





The grounds covered-- total 22 acres. 
We did not walk all 22 acres but we 
walked and walked.





All the pathways were lit with lots and
lots of candles!! Pathways and water-
ways had candles.





I think for all of us here in the metro
area, we consider this the KC Royals
tree.




A very nice guest took our picture for 
us.

On Saturday, we did a little shopping 
and hanging out.





On Sunday, we went to Crown Center,
a "premier family destination" in down-
town. There are a variety of activities
for the whole family to choose from.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at this
lovely restaurant.





I chose the lunch buffet and Mr. 
Ken had a Caesar salad and 
lasagna.
I posted my choice on Facebook
so I didn't post it here. THEN
we had a Cannoli and Gelato for
dessert.




This is the Mayor's Christmas. It is lit
the day after Thanksgiving in Crown
Center Square. It is 100 feet tall and
lit with thousands of lights and orna-
ments.





A beautiful wreath inside the Crown 
Center shops.





If you look very closely, you will see
that this is a ginormous Snow Globe.
this is part of the "Downtown Dazzle"
Activities. We stood in line and then
got to go INSIDE the globe and had 
our picture taken! It was sooo fun!





These characters were monitoring 
all of the guests waiting in line
for their turns to go in the globe.

Another fun anniversary and now
we are onto the next.

Look for me on Facebook if
I am not here.
