Twinkle Twinkle, Little Lights

I always thought that my first time being on the news would be because I was being interviewed about a crime or a natural weather disaster.  Then I moved away from Greeley and I figured I'd never get my chance to be on TV.

Last night, my family and I were invited to attend the Blossoms of Light at the Denver Botanic Garden and to be VIP guests for the flipping of the switch! FOX31 was there and aired it live.

You can see two and a half of us in the video. Mallory was terrified of being on television. I think what she's really afraid of is that she'll be discovered and turned into another Honey Boo Boo.

Blossoms of Light is really beautiful! They gave us HoloSpex glasses to wear that turn the million lights into amazing snowflakes, reindeer or snowmen. I actually preferred to see the lights without the glasses.

Keith and I even got a rare picture together!

The weather could not have been better; not too cold.  The kids thought the lights were magical, and as they ran from tree to tree, they declared it the best day of their lives.  I can see us adding this to our family holiday traditions!

You should also be aware that there are a few places to purchase hot chocolate and cider and at a certain place on Friday nights, you can have a little something added to make it into an adult beverage.  You can also purchase a bag of roasted nuts.  I passed on this lovely snack because I didn't want to draw the attention of Denver's squirrel population. I have learned my lesson!

If you live south of Denver, you can view the Trails of Lights at Chatfield, located at C-470 and Wadsworth.


  1. LOVE that picture of you guys under the arch!
    And if I ever make it on the news you better send me bail money.

  2. How fun! You guys look great.

    We wanted to look at the lights tonight but it's 80 degrees here. We need winter to come first!

  3. Those lights are beautiful! And, so is that sexy couple under the arch!

    And, WHEN M makes her TV debut, she will simply be known as "Suga-h" (sugar without the R) for her on-air personality name.
