Before skipping town for the holidays, we made our way to Dyker Heights, Brooklyn to check out their stunning Christmas Lights display. We found a spot to park and had a fantastic night walking around the blocks to check out the all festive houses. They were completely decked out with strings of lights, humongous wreaths, multiple blow up characters, reindeer, and toy soldiers. We saw nativity scenes, dancing ballerinas, a giant Santa Claus, and even two carousels! One house was selling hot chocolate for charity, and that ended our night with a sweet twist. Dyker Heights has the most stunning display of lights I have ever seen in one neighborhood. I definitely plan on returning for future holiday seasons, and I would love to bring some out-of-town visitors here to check out the scene.
We had a lovely time on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my family and the day after Christmas with my husband’s family. It was so much fun to see Nico get excited about opening his gifts this year. He was very much into the wrapping paper, and wanted to play with every single toy or book he opened right away. Simply magical!
We are spending another week in Maryland catching up with more family and friends. Last night we went out to celebrate a friend’s 30th Birthday, and we are planning on spending New Year’s Eve in Baltimore. It’s kind of nice to have free babysitting! 😉 Not to mention, we love that Nico is getting so much quality time with his grandparents and family.
Hope you all had a great holiday, and wishing you the best for the new year!
