T'was the Night Before Christmas

We had a yummy supper, took baths, got all ready for Santa to come and headed out to look at Christmas lights...

When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a big white Explorer coming out of nowhere!
And this is the situation we found ourselves in...

We are all okay and so are the people in the other car. But both vehicles are "all wrecked up" (as Hallie keeps saying) Ryan had run a red light and ran into the back passenger side wheel.
Needless to say after sitting there for about an hour and a half waiting for the police to fill out 10 minutes worth of paperwork we drove home (with a rubbing/scratching/crunching sound) without seeing the lights.
Wasn't our ideal Christmas Eve... but could have been a lot worse.
.... as we drove out of sight, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

4 friends had to say...:

I prayed and prayed for you to have safe travels when you came for Christmas. I forgot to include one for "looking at the lights" Sorry, my mistake. Glad everyone is fine. Can always fix metal and plastic but not loved ones!!!
