Christmas Festivals and Tree Lightings! Georgia Christmas Attractions!

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple of days I had a pretty busy weekend! Saturday my family and my sister's all headed down to our city's annual Christmas festival . It's such a great way to spend time with family! At these events they have freebies and rides lots of music and food. At the end of the event they light up the big Christmas tree and call it a night! I take my kids to this every year and let them unwind from being in the house so much during winter.Sam took Gabe on his first Ferris wheel ride and he loved it!

                                            Here's a few pictures from over the weekend!



On Sunday we attended our church for worship and also had the Annual Church Luncheon and decoration of the tree. It's always such a fun and happy occasion  We listen to preaching and then everyone brings a covered dish and we all have a lunch together. After everyone is full to the rim and barely able to move we all go into the sanctuary and decorate the huge Christmas tree which all of the kids really enjoy!


















To finish off our day we headed to our local hardware store and picked up our addition to the family the Christmas tree! We got a 6-7 foot fraser fir and a new Angel topper!Once we got it home we cranked up the Christmas music and all participated in decorating our tree. When we finish we all settle down in front of the telly and watch The Grinch! We had a wonderful weekend!
