Christmas in the Village a Pictorial

Ok, I mentioned last night I was going out with the family, some of ya'll (tweeple) said to take some pics, so here ya go...

For some background, I left the big city life back when my first child was borne and headed to the country. We eventually landed (5 years ago) in a small town of 1500 that is quaint and offers all the goodiness that comes with small town life.

Our main street is maybe a few hundred yards long, has maybe 20 stores and well... that's about the size of it. We don't even have a set of street lights in town, just a stop sign in the middle of town.. Gives you the idea. Each year they close off the main street and the town turns up to get into the holiday spirit. Here's some visuals from last night.

Small town Christmas

That of course are the kidlets... or as I like to say these days, the 'hicklets' since they're true blue country kids. They are Elisia and Adrian... they had a blast.

At the local barber shop (yes, with striped poll and all) they were set up for the kids to make some antlers for the evening. Oh and the antlers themselves? You trace yer hand... very cute.

Santa

Meanwhile, over at the local real estate office, Santa and the missus had set up shop. This is a good move because last year? They had it in the funeral home..lol.. strange choice. Nice to see they moved it.

Horse Drawn wagon

Another tradition around here, a few times per year, one of the local farmers brings his horses and wagon into town. It's a nice ride around the town and the kids just LOVE it. Fortunately it wasn't TOO cold, so it was bearable this year.

Just a couple of pics with the fam'. One with my daughter and of course I had to work one in with the missus, whom just HATES cameras and me posting her pic for the world to see...lol. Hopefully I will avoid the dog house with that one...

And there we have it... there were more pics, but I know yer busy, so that's the quick jist of things. The Legion (veterens center) had story telling and a choir as well. Fun time all in all.

From me and mine to you and yours; Happy holidays!

Season's Greetings. Hope you have a Christmas as it should be. I like the look of the village you live in too. Seems a place free from the trappings of city life.

Kind regards

Your town looks so peaceful :-)
The kids seem to be having a fun time. You and Tanya look like a Hollywood couple in that last pic- don't know why she doesn't like taking pictures- she looks great!
All the best,
Eren
