Christmas JOY= Jesus is the reason for the season, giving to and serving others blesses you abundantly.
It was a beautiful day in historic Gettysburg, the second day of December and Christmas was all around on Steinwehr Avenue. Six adults, one toddler and one infant started out on a grand walk down the avenue, prepared with a double stroller and plenty of hands anxious to help with the little ones.
This little guy was not happy in the stroller for long. He was having the time of his life, practicing his recently accomplished goal of walking.
We were headed for a carriage ride with horses decked out in lots of jingling bells. When he spotted those big horses he made a quick jump for g-grandma’s arms.
We all enjoyed the ride through the streets that celebrated Gettysburg’s history as well as the season.
After the ride, he was ready to be friends with the horses.
We were dropped off in front of the historic Dobbin House, beautifully decorated for Christmas.
From there we continue our walk along the avenue. Dick comes close to getting a taste of a large ice cream cone.
Next stop, a visit from a Civil War era Santa. He was almost as perplexed here as he was with the horses. So many new things to see today.
Later we enjoy the parade, and look who’s still all eyes, not missing any of the action.
But this little beauty never missed a minute of her daytime sleep. As snug as a bug in a rug, she also enjoyed the day.
This lovely day began our Christmas celebration, with almost a month to go I see many happy days ahead.
Merry Christmas to all of you from all of us.
