Wordy Wednesday: Picture Perfect Angels

Sunday, we went with my whole family to "Our Lady of the Snows." If you aren't from the St. Louis area, then you probably haven't heard of this place. It's a good drive from where we live, but well worth it. Basically, it's a mile-and-a-half long drive, that consists of over a million lights, electro art displays, and life-size Biblical statues which take you on a scriptural journey to Bethlehem. It's truly a breathtaking display that focuses on the birth of Christ. 
It offers so much more than a drive through light display. It has camel and pony rides, a petting zoo, puppet shows, music shows, an electric light show, wreath decorating contests, a whole room dedicated to children, and so much more! The children's room is filled with crafts, games, and a bunch of activities, all centered on the true meaning of why we celebrate Christmas, Jesus! 

They also had a photo studio set up where the kids or the whole family could all dress up as angels and get your picture taken. We didn't intend on getting ours taken, but after the picture below, we thought we should try and see if we could get a smile out of these boys..... No such luck, but a great memory nonetheless!

I'm pretty sure this is the best and funniest picture ever!  Who knew being an angel would cause such reactions. ;o)

It's as if Dominic was saying, "No mom & dad, just no....."


  1. LOVE the grumpy angels! And I hear there is a drive through area somewhere near us. Since I may be having a baby soon it may have to wait until next year! But my son is sooo into lights this year!

  2. Oh so grumpy and cute all at the same time!
