CHRISTMAS AT DYKER HEIGHTS



sunday night we went deep into brooklyn to spend the evening with mara and danny. mara was in our ward back in our brooklyn days, and though we shared all the same friends (we have a nearly identical collection of christmas cards displayed right now), somehow we never hung out. so it was really lovely to finally fix that, and meet her husband danny, and see her seriously great apartment in park slope.

and then we all drove out to see the famous dyker heights christmas lights. they were seriously insane. it was such a blast. it's not really christmas until you've seen a thirty-foot-tall santa leering at you from a person's front yard, you know.












(danny took this one, i love it!)








and my favorite photo from the night:


pays to be short sometimes!

danny and mara, we love you!

  10. oh I know this all to well. It's awesome. I love all the crazy lights and plastic wrapped nativity scenes (at least that is what they do in Port Chester NY). We drive over to CT into NY and get lost in the lights.

    HILARIOUS photo of all of you. That person has skills.
