The Larson Christmas Light Show in Elburn

Last night we made the "quick" drive to Elburn to see first-hand the "Larson Christmas Light Show." I say "quick" because the house isn't too far from our house, but the traffic was ridiculous at the house. There's a huge house in Elburn that puts on this spectacular Christmas light show that's choreographed to music on one of the local radio stations. It is super popular in the area; we waited a little over an hour in traffic to drive a half-mile to make it from the road to the front of the house for a good view of the show. It truly was amazing what this family/company did to their house. It inspired us to do this one day to our future home......(yeah right).

Too bad Kaila fell asleep, so she missed it. Fortunately, Kenna was awake and was able to see the light show......with no reaction. With this being our first Christmas by ourselves in Illinois, we realized that this event sparked a new Reyes Christmas Tradition, except now we know what radio station it's on (so we can follow while sitting in traffic), to go right as the show starts (5pm), and right as the holiday season kicks off after Thanksgiving. It was unbelievable how many cars were there to see the show and how long we waited in traffic, but it was worth it!
