Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, from our family, to yours! And THANK YOU for stopping by and donating to St. Mary Outreach.

Just wanted to drop a quick note and thank everyone that was able to come and share Christmas with us this past year. It was our fifth animated Christmas display, and time has flown by. We are already making our plans for Christmas 2013!

We have won 1st place in our division (Festive – Region 1) for the Patterson Lighting Contest, sponsored by the Patterson Garden Club.

We also had a spot on Bayou Time on HTV/KFOL/KJUN (HTV10.TV) this year highlighting the display.

We were the first in our area (St. Mary Parish) to have an animated display, and after 5 years we are seeing the segment growing. One of our family traditions has been to view the Christmas display of our neighbors, big and small. The simplest display can be a beautiful display, and it warm our hearts to see that the people that do try to show joy for the season.

From all of us, have a safe, and Happy New Year!
