We got rained out last year but this year the band was back to perform in our town's annual Tree Lighting party! It's one of those times that is so fun and nostalgic and pretty where the biggest prize is the moment they flip the switch and the town is lit up like a Christmas tree!

Mr. Charming. He knows it. That's ok. His mom will keep him humble.
This is not the White House, this is not a movie, this is my little town. I mean, really. Tell me it's not the most magical sight. It would have been great anyway, but having my son playing in the band on the common for all of the families made me especially proud. (son #1 had to work - oops, he'll have to take that up with the Band Director who will be none too pleased...) They played Christmas carols and everyone sang along. In all of the hustle and bustle (and since I'm living the retail experience I know) you've gotta find your holiday joy where you can and last night I found it.
