buggy ride

It's an old-fashioned carriage ride
Through Highland Park, Dallas TX

Bob's you uncle
Fanny's your aunt

I didn't get to ride  - this time....
rsvp only!

The cute horses wore safety feet

*Clomp*clomp*bang* all the way through town!
Touring the light styles of the rich and famous!

It's all lit up down here!

"Shop till ya drop...
....Then crawl"

Not so Silent Night

Oh what a site it is to see!

Hope your night is all good!
Santa is coming - are you being good?


  1. Lots and lots of white lights, I stopped counting at 1,809...

    Havea a great holiday weekend!

  2. Looks pretty! Can't say I'm ready for Santa, haven't wrapped a thing yet. But as always everything will get done in time even if I'm up till 3 in the morning lol.

  3. Oh, these were gorgeous! I've always wanted to go for a ride like that during Christmas. Didn't know they had them in Texas!

    Have a blessed Christmas, Anne!

  4. Those lights are INSANE! How beautiful.

    I really like the idea of a carriage ride. So romantic.

  5. "Shop till ya drop...
    ....Then crawl"

    it's always about exercise with you!
    Just kiddin.
    That was my favorite line ;)

    Those weren't low carb lights! Insane is right SkippyMom!
    Edison could never have imagined such a sight.

    Thank you Anne for a lovely Holiday Post.
    You are the sparkling light in my day ~ everyday.

  6. Well, DH and the reindeer are packed and ready to go - for tonight's trip! Maybe they could have used a ride like this!

  7. So many lights, just amazing. Not many lights in this little hippie town. But I love it here anyway. I wish you a joyous Christmas, Anne. I hope you receive some love and kindness like you are giving to others all the time. Hugs.

  8. A carriage ride sound exciting and wonderful I'm sorry you didn't get to ride this time. I don't think we have anything like that available near us but it is something I would love to do someday. Merry Christmas!

  9. Happy Christmas my Crazy friend, angels like you shine at this time of the year xx

  10. This looks like so much fun!! I've done carriage rides in NYC but never at Christmas time. Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

    LIGHT styles of the rich and famous!
    hee! hee! Ho! Ho! Ho!

  12. Gorgeous pic's! I've never seen so many lights :)

  13. Man - have I got some catching up to do! They lights- they burn!

  14. Oh thank you Anne for these pictures. I was there a few days before you, but didn't take any snaps. I shall refer to yours for my memories. And oh, how I did love those Pinto horses. I've got a real soft spot for the spotted ones.

    Merry, Merry!

  15. Annie - That classic line came from the
    Kidd Kraddick In The Morning Show.
    He's my fave DJ. And he's here in Dallas!
    "Shop till ya drop.... then crawl..."
    And that is exactly what they do here in DFW!

  16. So Beautiful!!!

    I was wondering about the other line, "Bob's your Uncle Fanny's your Aunt..." is that from something? I've heard it on the infomercial for The "Magic Bullet." lol

  17. Haha!! And then crawl!!! :D :D So true! i'm being a good girl. I am. I am. I am. :)


I would love to hear from you!
