Apparenly it's already time to start the Christmas Season in our town. Today was the annual Festival of Lights and although the thought of it almost made me want to hurl, we went down to see what it was all about.
And we really had a great time. The fun thing about a small town is that you always see people you know and run into people you hadn't seen in ages. Children were dancing on the courthouse steps, carriage rides were given, High School Musical was being performed by the high school, all the businesses were holding Open Houses and there was food galore. What more could you want? But seriously. Christmas the first weekend of November?? Blech.
Later today (or tomorrow if you go ahead and "Fall Back"), we play our Division Championship on the High School football field. And believe me, that's a huge deal to a bunch of 6 and 7 year olds (and even their parents!) :) I even got window paint to dress up the car and some noise makers to be a little bit obnoxious! So proud of my little man and his team - they've worked so hard this season! GO LEGENDS! I'll update tomorrow with the results!
Thanks so much to all for the birthday wishes! It really meant alot to me and I would have posted about it a bit, but well...I'm getting old sadly and hate to face that. Plus my day took a bit of a backseat to Miss Lydian Jane this year. And I'm so ok with that. :D
And one more thing - if you have a chance, come on over to Rhubarb Roots (LOVE that name) tonight at 9:00 EST/8:00 CST. I'm doing a little chat with the ladies there and I've love to have you stop by! :)
