Monday and (last) Friday

David reminded me that I hadn't put up any of our pictures from Friday night in downtown Blacksburg. Oops!

But first, here are Monday's pictures of the day:

Daisy with Daddy in his office when we met him for lunch.

Daisy in her car seat, all bundled up in her new hat and gloves.

Daisy with Beth and Jess, who came to visit last night after the annual NLCF Christmas party.

Okay, back to Friday. Daisy and I walked downtown and met David by the Farmer's Market.

It was the Christmas kickoff night in Blacksburg, as well as the grand opening of the new Market Square Park (home of the Farmer's Market). We wandered down to check out the new park. It's really nice.

Then we walked back to Henderson lawn for the annual town tree lighting. They lit the tree at 5:30pm, and there were a lot of folks packed in to watch.

We had planned on taking Daisy to see Santa at the Lyric, but by the time we go there after the tree lighting, Santa was on break and getting ready for the parade. Oh well. Maybe next year.

We decided to walk back down to the market to hear some tubas play and take in some more sights.

We ended up at the Cellar to eat dinner while the annual Christmas parade began.

When we were done eating, we watched some of the parade as we walked home.

It was a fun night filled with the Christmas spirit. :)
