Santa Makes An Early Appearance

|
No room for mistakes now, he knows exactly where we live and what the kiddos would like on Christmas morning.




He Came To Our Town...

|
Joys of living in a small community sometimes can't be measured.

Part of our volunteer fire department's fundraising program is to have Santa visit local neighborhoods and come into the homes for a visit with the kids; a small donation to the fire department secures you a reservation.  He arrives in style on the back of a fire truck with lights and sirens blazing.

Our neighbors invited us to their house Saturday night for a party and a Santa visit, and then, we had him at our house on Sunday night.

He must have known what I wanted, because he brought me a Cowboy's win later that night...

Junie B. Jones and Batman Smells...

Maryland Ensemble Theater is a small theater group in Frederick that I've wanted to see for a while.  I've passed by the stage/signs a hundred times but never made it in.  Robyn found a deal on Certifikid for discounted tickets.

It was a great show in a very small and intimate setting, and with Jaxson starting his first play for school in a few weeks, I think it really perked his interest.

Followed all that up with some ice cream at one of our local spots in downtown.




Presents Delivered

|
Boo & Pops surprised the kiddos (and Robbie and I) with some early Christmas presents.

PJ's, mugs, and hot cocoa mix will make for a great family night in the coming weeks...

Harper's Ferry Panaroma

Three states in one picture.

Virginia to your left.  West Virginia in the middle.  Maryland on your right.

Grab a map; the point where all three states meet is where this picture is taken.



Harper's Ferry Outlook Hike

|
Took the opportunity of a sunny November afternoon to take a hike; literally.

Headed to Harper's Ferry and hiked the Outlook Trail; minus Miss Belle due to the trail difficulty and cold outside.

Best words to describe...beautiful.
