Christmas in Our Town

Every year our small town holds a Christmas event where everyone gathers together downtown. Downtown is completely shut off and the streets are lined with vendors selling their products, delicious food, hot chocolate stands, rides, games, carriage rides, and pictures with Santa. Some of the stores stay open late so people can shop. The performance… Continue reading Christmas in Our Town

Weekend Happenings

This past Saturday was so gross! It was so foggy you could barely see anything when looking out the windows.

When is Thanksgiving?

Halloween is over. Merry Christmas! What happened to Thanksgiving? You know, that holiday for us Americans that comes between Halloween and Christmas. Where did it go? When did it become okay for us to skip over being thankful? When I was young, our family tradition was to visit my dad's parents' house for a big… Continue reading When is Thanksgiving?

Happy Halloween!

It's finally Halloween and I'm a little glad to see it come and go. My daughter is 11 this year and she's at that weird in-between age where she's too young for certain things and too old for certain things. She wanted to go trick-or-treating, so we will, but she's just not as excited about… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
