Tree Lighting!

Last weekend we went out in the midst of a winter snowstorm to the local tree lighting festival. Boy, I'm so glad that we went. It really got me in the holiday spirit! We bundled up in layers of clothing and snowsuits and pulled up to a wonderfully large bonfire waiting for us. Next, Brendan rode a pony, but not long enough for me to get a picture of him. He got scared since the saddle started to slide off of the pony and he nearly fell off! Next we listened to the high school choir sing some classic Christmas songs and as they sang "Here Comes Santa Claus" we all hurried to see Santa coming down the street in the fire truck! A beautiful little girl from the elementary school lit the tree and we finished up with some warm cider. It was a wonderful night to celebrate with family and friends and can't wait to do it again next year!
