Hometown Holidays

Last weekend, Wyatt stayed with Mrs. Desiree and Mr. Sheldon while Justin and I dabbled around the house wrapping presents and little things around the yard. May was so happy that she went for two swims in the 40- and 50-degree weather.
Our winter garden is coming along. The broccoli and cabbage heads are starting to form. We have seen wild rabbits out there twice at night in the past week.

Doc Bunny (our pet rabbit) especially enjoyed the turnips from the garden. She munched happily in the sunshine all day. We have her in the carport to block the cold winds from her right now and I think she enjoyed the warm weather.
We burned off our burn pile where we left all the fallen branches and yard debris. These old bushes Justin ripped out a few months ago must have been properly dried because they went up very quickly. I told him I felt like Moses with the burning bush.
Saturday night we had the Ashburn Christmas Parade. This year’s theme was a patriotic Christmas. We had World War II veterans as grand marshals.
Amanda’s Arts Council float won best civic organization! We are using those silver trees for another project coming soon. Can’t wait to see them all dec’d out again.
After the parade, we went to visit Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Wyatt was enamored and he didn’t want to leave Santa’s lap, which is a huge difference from this Christmas two years ago (terrible pic because I snapped it from a video):
I snagged this vintage Turner County ornament that night too. It’s only one year younger than I am!
Sunday, I finished up my thesis (PRAISE!) while Mimi and Wyatt hung out together. He was the tape-master of the Christmas present marathon wrapping session.
