Gettin' Grinchy wit' it.

2008 Christmas Tree Lighting

Our town just held it's annual "light up" night. Usually we opt to stay home and watch the fireworks from our house, but this year we decided to venture out and see what the excitement was all about.

Although it was dreadfully cold, everyone was in good spirits. The ceremony was relatively short, after the introductions of Christmas luminaries such as Frosty, Rudolph and Santa and Mrs. Claus, they hit the lights. The crowd then ooo'd and ah'd appropriately.

We had planned on going home to watch the fireworks, but since they started immediately after the tree lighting, we decided to watch them from ground zero. Lauren couldn't take her eyes off the sky.

Afterward, everyone crowded into the school cafeteria for cookies and hot cocoa. While all the kids rushed off to Santa, Lauren instead preferred to meet her Christmas idol:
