neighborhood tree lighting

Last night was the annual Christmas tree lighting in our neighborhood.  Despite the temps being in the low 30s (with wind chills in the 20s) we had a blast!  The kids saw Santa and his reindeer, bounced in bounce houses, played in the snow and went down the snow slides.  Our local art shop had free face painting and allowed the kids to make a really neat ornament for the tree!   It was FREEZING, but we would go out for a bit and then hop in the donut/coffee shop for a while and the art shop was warm as well.  We didn't stay for the actual tree lighting, but on the way home, Abby was able to see some Christmas lights and she was just tickled!  Such a fun night with neighbors and friends!
