Saturday:) Celebrating on the Square~ Home For the Holidays

27 Nov

“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” 

― Laura Ingalls Wilder

The city of McKinney puts on an amazing Home for the Holidays festival. Yesterday was the tree lighting ceremony. I didn’t make it out for that, but I went down to the square tonight. It’s always great bumping into friends, watching the families laughing and celebrating, everyone in a festive holiday spirit. Arriving in the late afternoon, I was able to watch the sun set, changing the daytime mood into a nighttime festive glow.

    Who’s that with the Grinch?


    Bumped into friends Kelle, Lynda and Mary.


    My friend Brad Donaldson was showing his wonderful work in front of LAST Gallery.


    Kelle and I stopped at Sweet Spot Bakery for some hot chocolate and coffee. It was so busy, I barely had a minute to say hi to Kathy and Elizabeth.

    I’ll just share a few pictures.


    Nighttime magic.


    McKinney does it right, day and night. A fun day on the square.
