One of the very best things about living in our little town is the sense of community it brings out in everyone. I know I've written about this before, but it is such a special place and perhaps no time is better than Christmas.
Every year the kids wait patiently for the town to hang the lights. There are angels, Christmas trees, snowflakes, reindeer and every festive feature you can imagine. It all makes for the perfect backdrop at the annual Christmas parade.
Every year we bundle up in layers of coats, blankets and scarves and take our seat on the curb waiting for the church floats, scouting groups, and firetrucks to pass through town.
Of course the best part is running into good friends who help you fill your bag full of broken candy.
It's always cold, and chaotic, and like a scene out of Steel Magnolia's, although, there is no Miss Mistletoe Pageant. Ha! After an evening well spent, we warmed up with Mexican for dinner and a pleasantly early bedtime before Saturday's basketball game!
