santa came to light up our town the day after thanksgiving. we'd never been before but quickly discovered that it was quite the local celebration. hundreds of people crowded the town square (or "the diamond," as we call it) to watch a parade which culminated in santa's arrival by trolley, accompanied by miss ligonier's court. it was freezing, and dylan was a bit overwhelmed, but all in all, it was quite the festive family outing.
a few more pictures from the weekend with my family who came in from philly and brooklyn:
i think we are out of the woods with the swine flu, praise God. thank you for all your prayers!
