Yes we do Cat! It's really quite lovely, there is a small plaza where they put up the tree and it is decorated with giant ornaments, and believe it or not those ornaments do not go missing, as I first suspected they might. There also are some giant beautiful snowflakes that a co-worker of mine has made by welding metal. They are lighted as well and they, along with the tree make a splendid holiday scene. I took a picture of the tree, but it isn't very good, folks kept walking in front of my camera. I don't have a pic of the snow flakes, but I will try to remember to get some. The middle school band was playing Christmas Carols and the choir was singing, there was a craft fair in an unused storefront, and wagon rides pulled by four beautiful draft horses(maybe Clydesdales?) we do not have many downtown merchants, but some of them were offering free hot chocolate, mini donuts, popcorn and hot apple cider. The best part for the little kids was Santa and Mrs. Claus arriving on a vintage 1949 LaSalle fire engine. Santa then set up shop in the local pizza parlor to receive the little munchkins Christmas lists and wishes. Not bad for a really small town :)

The Jello, Chips and Salsa were a big hit. One nurse was standing there eating chips and salsa, she suddenly hollers "OMG!!" What, What? She points at them and says, "I didn't notice they were bedpans." Here are the pics:

OMG. Too funny! Oh lordy, those bedpans, those specimen jars

Most Churches have a day of their choirs giving a concert. Beautiful music and usually refreshments after.
Oh! This is such a good idea! I'll also stuff Lakisha in Joy.

With love,

That is almost as bad as my kitty litter cake. No wonder you are an ogress.
