Looking Back Part 1




Happy Monday Everyone!
I have tried several times to get 
this posted but life is there to 
keep us busy. Plus two days down
with the "creepy crud" did not help.

Anyway we are going to look back at
our wonderful holiday season.

First up is:
The Lee's Summit Magic Tree.
This unassuming little tree sits off the
highway during the  "off season" but
come  Christmas time ii is decorated
with many lights and people come 
from all over to see it.





It is free to see but donations are taken
and shared with a variety of community
charities. Also visitors may drop of
non perishables for the local food bank.





This is a drive through wonder for 
the eyes. If you blink you might 
miss something!














Donations are taken at the end
and shared with a variety of
charities in the county.





Look who I ran into on the way to a
holiday concert! 





One Sunday, we went down to Union 
Station and as a surprise for Mr. Ken 
we went to see "The Holiday Express.








The Conductor working hard to 
make sure everyone went the 
right way.





On the way to the train we ran into
this fellow.




Three train cars were fully decorated.
A flat car held Santa's sled and the 
front car was the engine named 
Rudy.
















Here we are in front of Rudy.





Someone was in heaven to see 
these two lovely ladies.  These 
two Kansas Chiefs Cheerleaders
were doing some 
fundraising by 

selling their calendar.
Yes, we bought one. :)





Trees at the Station.








This year we put up three trees. 
The tall one is my pencil tree, it 
had our family ornaments and 
my White House ornaments on 
it this year. The small tree to the 
left was my Mom's Fiber Optic 
tree. The third tree is on the 
other side of the living room.
It will be in the next post.





I am especially proud of my 
bow because I made it! 
Normally I have a gold bow 
but I wanted a new one this 
year and since our color 
scheme was red,green, silver 
and gold, I went with the plaid. 
You can see it's length in the 
photo above.
The top of the tree does not hold 
anything very heavy so I do the
bow.
In part two, I will show you the 
third tree which I was very 
excited to create plus some 
other fun stuff.

Thanks for hanging with me on 
this lengthy post.


~Keep on Dreaming~

  2. Melinda, I hope so much to get to Union Station next year. It's hard on Keith, but we are going to try! Where is Christmas in the park?

    1. The one thing about Union Station is that you can go at your own pace and there are plenty of places to sit.
      Christmas in the Park is at Longview Lake in Lee's Summit.
