Strolling, strolling through our beautiful town

Waiting for the parade to start - just look at that sky - what a perfect day for a parade

Still waiting patiently
The Williamson County Color Guard kicks off the parade
Greatest Band in the Land - Go Eagles! Cait's high school band - she was drum major
her Senior year.
Sunrise Beach Lawnchair Brigade - this is a really fun group of people from Sunrise
Beach Texas who march in area parades to promote their community. They are always a
crowd favorite and have won lots of awards in parades they have marched in.
Those cats are crazy!
Aren't they adorable
Bethleham Re enactors
Here Comes Santa Texas Style!









Hello everyone. Our town's annual Christmas Stroll was today and it was wonderful! The weather was perfect, the parade was great and wait until you see some of the goodies I found. I went "shopping" with some special people in mind and hope you like the results. I've added another link to my favorite chocolate store. Silly me, I didn't think that they had a web site. When I asked the owner if he minded me photographing in his store, he said to make sure I told you that I had sampled everything in the store and highly recommended it all - well I (almost) have and I do!
Hope you enjoy your visit to our little town, come back anytime.
PS to see my shopping finds, scroll to the bottom of the page. I seem to be layout impaired!

You definitely know how to pick the perfect presents!!!I love the roosters and the console they're on and the whole things. I'll have to sample all the candies too. What a great Christmas stroll. I love the lawn chair brigade. I hadn't seen that before. Your little town so reminds me of my hometown in Tx. And yes, Santa should always arive on a wagon drawn by horses. You are the very best. Thanks and Hugs, Marty
