Radio City Christmas Spectacular and Shadrack's Christmas Wonderland!

It's now officially December which means that all things can be about Christmas! I'm only decorating a little bit (meaning one tree and a few red candles...) because in less than two weeks we will be back in California for the holidays!

But we are fully embracing Christmas while we're here!

Thursday night we saw the Radio City Christmas Spectacular at the Grand Ole Opry.  We went just to see the Rockettes, but there was also a singing group that performed with Santa.  It was a little cheesy but we really enjoyed seeing the Rockettes.  And only in the South would a show end with a live nativity scene---complete with three live sheep and two live camels.  Here's a clip from youtube of the Rockettes doing one of the dances we saw!

Saturday night we went out to sushi with Andy, Emme and baby J before we headed over to Shadrack's Christmas Wonderland.  Basically they take a RV park and decorate it with Christmas lights that are synched to music.  As you enter the grounds, you tune your radio station to the one all the lights are synched to.  Here's a clip from youtube. To say that this exceeded my expectations is a complete understatement.  An absolute must see for anyone in the area!

And we got to drive past the MASSIVE nativity display in front of the Opryland Hotel.  So who doesn't love hundreds of people trying to get up close to a wooden baby Jesus?

Both of these events were awesome and had we known about them when we made our Fort Campbell Bucket List, they definitely would have been on there!

We topped off the weekend by going to church for the first Sunday of Advent!  Now it's grilled cheese and soup for lunch while we watch Elf.
