Last weekend was a busy weekend with kids around here! Friday night our youngest had a choir concert at Light up Middletown. The Community Center is in a beautiful old church and it is always beautiful! First they light the light the tree outside and then Santa leads a parade to the Community Center and they have several choirs and soloists. Maia’s choir did a wonderful job and were so cute. I think I may miss these concerts when she goes to middle school next year!
Every year we make a trip to Madison, IN, my hometown, to do some Christmas shopping and wander around. It’s a great little town if you haven’t visited before. This year we went on the Nights Before Christmas Candlelight Tour. In addition to homes like the Lanier home that are always open to the public, they have private historic homes open to visit. They are all decorated for Christmas and the whole town is so festive it just gets you in the spirit. We shopped at some of our favorite stores All about Soap, The Attic which has the world’s best coffee, The Cocoa Safari and milkshakes at Hinkle’s. There may have been burgers at Hinkle’s too. Because of the tour and limited time we had to skip some other favorites like The Little Golden Fox, but we will get there next time.
It was just a great little trip and the kids had fun too. As a matter of fact we had such a good time that I didn’t take pics! I know! Bad blogger! Anyway, I have posted some pics from Facebook and the Tour of Homes website as well as links to some of my favorite things about Madison and a video blog that shows some of the homes.
If you are ever interested Madison has a lot of nice little hotels, bed and breakfasts and restaurants. If you have any questions about places to stay or things to do let me know!
