Jolly Holiday Lights 2012.

Driving through Jolly Holiday Lights is a great Christmas tradition. You should add it to your lists, if you live in Des Moines, if you don't do it already. (We actually drove through a few weeks ago, but it slipped through the blogging cracks until now. Oops.)

During Kley's two weeks of finals, (and are now FINISHED as of last night! Yay- my husband is back!) I put index cards on the wall, one for each day of finals, with something fun on the back that he could look forward to that night after his finals. One night was driving through Jolly Holiday Lights. 

If you haven't heard of it, Jolly Holiday Lights is set up in WaterWorks Park in Des Moines, and different companies sponsor a light set-up. The entire thing is sponsored by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, who grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. 100% of your admission goes to this cause. (Most of the kids pick going to Disney World as their wish. :)

Here are some pictures of our drive through. I apologize for the poor picture quality, it's hard to take good pictures in a moving car!
