Light the Star!

Christmas is right around the corner!
When you see the star on top of our Castle Rock
shine-shine-shining...
you can almost hears those jinglin' bells!
We had a great time at the 73rd annual Star lighting!
There were carolers (many of whom were my student - or former students)...
Christmas lights, Christmas music, hayrides, all things Christmas!

After all the street partying - and the sun goes down -
the whole town of Castle Rock-ians start singing some more carols...
and then the count down begins...
ta-da!
The star is lit!
Christmas is almost here!
Woohoo!"May this star of Castle Rock
Shine forth for peace on earth."


It's not over yet!
Here come the fireworks!
Yep...Christmas green and red fireworks!

So, happy star lighting...
all you blog readers!

Now it is time to give you a little suggestion
on what to order next time you are at your favorite coffee spot.
It is sososo good!
Happy Thanksgiving week!
