What a way to get into the holiday spirit. We took two bus trips to Waterford Gardens where they put on a real show of Christmas scenes with lots of lights. Waterford Gardens is an assisted living facility located in Mission Texas at 1522 East Griffin Parkway, between Stewart and Bryan roads. When we arrived we were treated to chili and cornbread. That was followed by dessert cakes, cookies and peanut brittle. We were also treated to some egg nog and other beverages including hot chocolate.

When we sat down to eat our chili, the gardens looked like the picture above. Then at 6:15 PM, they turned on the lights and it became a wonderland.
After everyone filled up on chili and desserts, we toured the gardens.
