Christmas Time in Marietta

It's been raining nonstop around here, but we're still trying to soak up the Christmas traditions in our town.  Living near Atlanta, there are so many holiday events taking place.  Of course I want to do them all, but would probably go crazy trying.  Plus, our kiddos aren't old enough to appreciate all of them yet.  I hope to add at least one a year.  This year we plan on going to Callaway Gardens Fantasy in Lights.  I can't wait to go ice skating outside or sledding down Stone Mountain, but I don't think this will be that year.  We've been staying a little closer to home.  
We went to an impromptu dinner last weekend on the square.  It was still unseasonably warm and actually stopped raining for a bit, so we decided to take a tour of the Christmas decorations on the square.  As we were gazing at the tree, the heavens opened up and drenched us with rain.  As we all sprinted to the car, I couldn't help but start laughing hysterically.   I'm so glad it wasn't freezing yet!
This one discovered Nutter Butter Reindeer and loves them!

Tonight, Elizabeth sang at our Children's Candlelight Service.  I still remember the first time we went to this as a family.  E was less than a year old.  I couldn't even imagine her being big enough to sing on stage... but she is!  Watching them all walk in down the center isle holding their (battery-operated) candles, almost made me cry.  I loved listening and especially watching her sing song after song.
