We spent weeks gearing up for our ninth annual "Christmas Memories" show. We weren't sure how it would go with all the talk of a sad state of economy. We were happily surprised to have a wonderful flood of people and a fabulous sale. We try really hard to provide a fun and charming atmosphere with lots of nostalgia and a sense of true Christmas warmth. We incorporate all the kids we know as well as friends that are dear enough to help us. We also serve a yummy cafe that is a fund raiser for the youth in our church, the food was wonderful. (especially the cinnamon rolls) Thanks Terry!! This year our 14 year old Gracie even served a full espressos bar. Me being the not overly organized type, failed to take any pictures what so ever. My friend Krissy a photographer, came through for me though and sent me a few pictures she managed to get. Over all the weekend was a huge success and now we just deal with the after scene. A huge load was stuffed into our spot at the Monticello and now we will continue preparing for the Wonderful Christmas open house that takes place there on the 5&6 of December where we will set up a special area in the back.
