Last weekend we attended the Gretna tree lighting. I just love old Gretna! It has that small town, cutesy feel and is just so homey. Every year I see the event and tell myself we should go but something always come up. But this year the stars aligned and we were able to go! My mom also happened to be in town so she tagged along also. Yaya met us out there too, so it was just a night of family fun. My friend Angelina and her family went also so the kids were able to play with some friends.
There were a lot more people than I expected but it was a large enough area that it wasn’t awful. I was actually pretty impressed by all the stuff they had going on. Before the lighting there was a parade and then after there were different performances and kids could take a picture with Santa. It was the perfect way to kick off our holiday season. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
