One recent cold afternoon, my daughter and I went to the local coffee shop to make plans for the holiday season.  Every year we talk about all the things we want to do, and then, after it's all over,  as we are putting up the bits and pieces of the now Christmas Past, we realize we didn't do any of the things on our wish list.  This year we took our calendars, ordered some hot chocolate, and got to filling in the blank spaces.  

While we were downtown, we went into the old library that was recently renovated and brought back to it's former beautiful self.  I snapped a few pictures just to show you how pretty it is.  Mostly they just have classics, I think.   

First thing on our calendar was the Christmas Parade. 3:00 today.  We were so excited to be going to our first event! Aren't we just so prepared?! So on the ball?! So organized?!  We gave ourselves plenty of time, knowing there would be so many people, sooooo many children. I wasn't sure where we would park. Luckily, we were early enough to get a nice close parking place. We walked around a bit. Downtown Newnan is really a wonderful place to be.  

 This is the old movie house.  It's now a nightclub. 
We are sitting on a bench here, waiting for the parade to start. 
 There were some vendors there, but we weren't seeing any families. The church bells tolled at 3:00...We waited and waited. No sounds. No children. No parade:(  

Oh well, we had a lovely time together, we kept telling ourselves! We still made memories. We got out of the house! We felt all Christmassy- tingly after seeing The Square all dressed in it's Christmas finery.  But no parade. Sigh.  We went home. I checked my calendar.  Oops! It's Sunday, not Saturday! We get to do it all again tomorrow!!

I hope you've had a great Saturday! Thanks for stopping by!
