Christmas in the Kirk

No snow down here in New Mex for a white Christmas. We had some the other day and it lasted about 2 hours. Pretty boring. We were able to find a little holiday cheer . . . at the River of Lights!

Bats and Jack in the box, definitely the first things that come to mind when I think of Christmas.

Santa is writing on his list what Dan wants for Christmas this year. Its the same as last year's Christmas wish and the jolly old man is still too poor to get him a metal lathe. Plus, it wouldn't really fit in the sleigh.

My favorite was the T-rex with moving parts.

It's no Temple Square, but it'll do for these New Messicans.

Count your lucky stars for the lack of snow! Looks like a fantastic light show!

Nothing says Christmas like a cowboy and a submarine.

I had to look twice at those bats. Couldn't figure out what they were or were doing in a Christmas Lights Event!
Right now, after shoveling snow drifts, I'll go for no snow!

Wow. I don't even have words for that. Ok, I do, and they are these: sometimes I wish I lived in the Kirk. I haven't looked that hard, but I doubt there is anywhere with a light display that varied. And I don't even know what a metal lathe is--is it like a scythe? Does he want to be the grim reaper or Father Time?
