Follow the star...

This past weekend was the 74th Annual
Castle Rock Star Lighting.
It is our favorite!
We go downtown,
get hot chocolate,
chat with friends and fam,
sing some Christmas carols...
and await the countdown to the lighting of the
big star on top of Castle Rock.

We began with a puppet show at the library...
Notice, Ariel came along, beside Allikaye.
Grandma and Popa were loving the puppet show too..
mmm hmmm.
I love sharing memories with this chick...
Here is mama and girl waiting for the Castle Rock Bell Ringers
to perform...

And here is the star...
lit every year since 1936!
I l-o-v-e stars for many reasons.
During this season it is such an incredible
reminder of the Light and sacrifice that was sent down
on Christmas.

"We saw HIS STAR in the east
and have come to worship him"
Mathew 2:2


Also...
since it is Thanksgiving week...
I made this silly little turkey shirt for
Allikaye to wear on Thursday...


Traced her sweet little hands,
added button eyes and a waddle.


Gobble...Gobble...
