Christmas Fun

I am so excited.  The Christmas celebrations are gearing up for this weekend!  So I thought to give a run-down of what we're case anyone is looking for something to do!

To start things off, we'll be traveling to Greenwood (my old college town) to the Connie Maxwell Children's Home to enjoy the Christmas celebration.  They are their own little community and they are decked out in Christmas lights.  They also have a live nativity, singing, horse-drawn carriage rides, and so much more.  It runs tonight and Saturday night from 6-830pm. 

Tomorrow from 1-6pm we are heading to Pendleton to Timm's Mill for the annual Christmas party.  There will be milling (grits/cornmeal), grits/cider, Tugaloo Holler (blue grass band), horse back riding, and more.  This is always a great time!  One of the doctor's I work for, Dr. David Wortham, owns the mill and puts on a grand affair!  Just click on the link above for directions.

Lastly, on Sunday at 2:00pm, we'll be heading over to the Hospice House in Anderson for the tree lighting ceremony.  We've purchased a ribbon in Mimi's name as well as an inscribed bell.  Bittersweet, but we want our kid's to remember her and all she meant to us!

And I almost forgot!  Zach will be going with his Royal Rangers group from church to ring the Salvation Army bell at the Central Walmart from 2-4pm!  What a great opportunity to teach our kid's it's not all about them this Christmas!  They'll also be invading the toy department to shop for their 'Angel Child' they've adopted this year!  He is looking forward to a great time!

Get out and do something with your family this weekend!  The things I've listed are free of charge and should be a good time for all!
