Merry Christmas everyone.
Only a few days left to prepare for Christmas so Santa can make his yearly debut. Perhaps not as large as in the past, rumors have it the parade was great once again. Congratulations to the Chamber for making it happen and to those who participated in the parade. A lot of hours are spent in preparing for such an event. Of course spectators are needed to cheer them on with appreciation for all the hard work. The weather could have been a tad bit warmer but Santa’s visit made it all worthwhile.
That’s what Christmas is all about and how fond memories are created here on the prairie.
New arrivals at the Library for the younger set include Karen Kingsbury “Let‘s have a Daddy Day;” There are forts to build, tadpoles to catch, and baseball games to play. How about a good floor wrestle with Dad that ends in a big belly laugh? Daddy Days can happen anytime--because what Dad loves best of all is just spending time with his little ones. So, what is a Mommy Date? The book “Lets go on a Mommy date“ is a playful, rhyming story describing some of the best. The zoo, circus, park, animal farm, or movie theatre. But in the end, spending time together is what a mommy date is all about, whether it’s a fun outing, or simply snuggling down to read about such adventures together!
