A Night To Remember

Christmas Lights
Sights & Sounds of Christmas
in Havertown, PA

I would like for you to meet my Grammy's good friends, Rev. John and his wife, Dale. Rev. John also works with my Grammy and they have known each other for a very long time. They invited all of us to come out to a place called Havertown for an evening of Christmas cheer. First, we stopped and got a bite to eat at a nice place that had steaks, hoagies, pizza, hamburgers, and one of my personal favorites...french fries!

Right next door to the place where we ate dinner, there was a store that was full of all kinds of trains. Of course, my favorite thing in the store was a table-top train set of Thomas & Friends on the Island of Sodor. I saw Thomas, Percy, Gordon, Annie, Clarabelle, Sir Topham Hatt, and all the gang! I had a good time playing with it and, trust me, I got really upset when I found out I had to leave them all behind in the store!

We also went upstairs and looked at all the other trains and stuff in the store. Thomas & Friends were the only trains that I knew about and I had never seen so many different kinds of trains in one place before. Some of them were really big too...it was something to see!

Grammy found this really nice carousel in the store. It reminded me of the one that I saw at the Willow Grove Park mall. She said that this one was too small for me to ride on so, I could only watch it go round and round without me.

This was another really big table-top train set. There were three trains running on it at the same time and one of them was a Christmas train!

While Pop-Pop and Rev. John kept me busy upstairs with the trains, Mommy, Grammy, and Dale went back downstairs. I think my Mommy and Grammy were getting me some Thomas & Friends stuff for Christmas but, s-h-h-h (whisper)... they think I don't know that's what they were doing!

When we finished at the train store, we rode around Havertown and looked at all the houses with Christmas lights. Some of the houses had lots of lights all over them and it was too many to count. Here are some pics...I wish there were more but some of them came out too dark. Oh, bother!

I can't believe that this candle is taller than me? Anyhoo, it was a fun night and we want to say "Thank You" to Rev. John and Dale for coming up with the idea. We had a really nice time. Maybe we can do it again next year!

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
