Wordless Wednesday: December 18, 2013 (w/linky)- Christmas Lights Scavenger Hunt

I found this list over at Family Friendly Frugality and thought it would be fun to use when we went out to look at the Christmas lights. The girls had fun helping find all the different decorations.

A House with Just White Christmas Lights (well, 3 houses)

A Penguin

(In case you can't see it, there are two penguins riding on the polar bear.)

Disney Character (Mickey Mouse)

More than 3 Inflatables in One Yard
(This house was amazing. Lots of inflatables, plus I found quite a few of the other decorations here.)


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

A Decorated Mailbox

(Technically, a mailbox that is a decoration, but it is the best I could come up with)

A Nativity Scene

(One by a house)

(And a couple in front of two different churches)

An Angel

The Word NOEL

Candy Canes

5+ Reindeer in One Yard

(The most I could find was 4 in one yard)

(Two on one side)

(And two on the other)

A House with Blinking Colored Lights

(These lights blink in synchronization to the music played over the radio station the owners have you tune to.) 

A Snowman

(I actually took this one because I love the lights shining through the snow on the top of the bushes. Conveniently there was a snowman in the same yard.)

A Camel

We didn't see the Grinch anywhere, but I was surprised I couldn't find the Christmas Train. For years there has been a little train car decoration at this one house that has Rudolph popping in and out. Not sure if I could find it during the day or if they aren't putting it up, or maybe they don't live there anymore, but I couldn't find it or any other.

Looking forward to seeing your Wordless (or not so wordless) Wednesday posts this week.

  11. What a great idea, we just went light viewing last night, this would have been fun to have had. Will keep it up my sleeve next year!

  12. Love this idea - if only we lived somewhere where our house wasn't the only one lit up.

  13. Wow, this is such a great idea and your photos are beautiful. My son and I went on a bus tour last night to see the Christmas lights around the town we live in. I've got to say, they were nothing compared to these though. They just look so much more Christmassy and exciting set against the snow. Thanks so much for sharing this. I love anything to do with treasure hunts!

  14. Beautiful lights. Have a Merry Christmas.


  15. It looks so festive in your neighborhood. I love seeing all the snow!

  21. Nice work! I bet we could find these pretty quickly.

  23. What fun, fun photos! And, BRRR, it sure does look cold there with all that snow, but oh so beautiful, too. Have a very Merry Christmas!
