Visit to the Ethel M. Chocolate Factory & Cactus Gardens with our friends The Clawsons

Tonight Jason & I met up with our friends the Clawson family at Ethel M. Chocolate Factory & at Christmas they have their cactus gardens all lit up! It is absolutely one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. Jason & I had been once before, but it was when we came to Vegas on vacation before we moved here. It has probably been 5 or 6 years & we only live about 5 miles away from it! I love getting together with Kelly & her family. Her little boy Deegan is about a month younger than Jarrett & they seem to really like each other & I really like hanging out with his mommy :) It was pretty cold tonight, but we still really enjoyed walking through to see the lights. We even got to see Santa again!

This was meant to be a family pic in front of the penguin for Nana, but obviously he kinda got cut out, HA!

There we go, now we got the penguin in the shot!

If you ever make a trip to Vegas at Christmas time, I highly recommend visiting the Ethel M. Chocolate Factory & seeing the lights ~ GORGEOUS!


  1. WOW!!!! I love this...sooooo pretty!!!

    cute pics!

  2. That is sooo Cool!! I will have to add this to my list of Christmas things to do while we are moving out to Cali. We plan on making a stop in Vegas, and this looks perfect. I think since everyone is bundled up in all the pictures it gives it a real Christmas'y feel!

  3. This is so pretty! I need to take Asher to see some neat Christmas lights this season - I think he'd really be enthralled! :o)

  4. Lovely pictures! Chocolate factory? That sounds amazing!!

  5. Bonnie!

  6. That looks like an awesome place to visit!!! Wish we had something like that here....we just drive around a neighborhood by us that has a contest every year - but even that is starting to get smaller and smaller too - boo! Glad y'all had a fun time with great friends!
