While in Atlanta we stayed with our old friends, the Sheads. We call them Nanny and Poppa; they’re like adopted grandparents.
Our first evening we went to the Christmas parade in Douglas. We filled our pockets with candy, and tried our hardest to ruin our teeth! The parade was slightly different than the ones we have in Idaho, where they all consist of horses, horses, and maybe a horse drawn carriage. You get the idea. This was a little different; mostly cars. Of course we had the luck to have the Harley-Davidson crew stop by us when the parade got backed up. Lovely smell, exhaust is!
The next evening we attended a Christmas tree lighting, with a dance and concert. A few of the dance academies performed, and it was really neat to watch. We had a variety of tap, ballet, interpretive, and bit of hip-hop. I must say, the 5 yr-old and below’s performance of ‘I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claas’ was especially cute!
Sunday we visited at Liberty Baptist Church, Mom’s church during middle school. Afterwards, Dad & Mom had a meeting with the Peachtree City United Methodist Church mission committee, while us kids enjoyed Steak N Shake milkshakes and watched ‘Elf’ with Nanny and Poppa.
Overall, it was a great visit! Very fun and a time to slow down and relax. We love you Nanny and Poppa!
