Christmas in Wilmore

Micah with Santa: No fear, chattering away about anything and everything!
Isaiah with Santa: Not so sure, laughs then cries then relieved when Mommy rescues him.
Elijah with Santa: Full of questions and happy to get his treat bag after waiting in line.
Lighting of the Wilmore tree. Ooooooo... Ahhhhh

Wilmore, charming little town that it is, has a Christmas event each year where they light the tree downtown, have craft fairs, horse and carriage rides, and in the evening all of the downtown shops open up with live music and free treats for visitors. Polics block off the street at either end so people can enjoy milling around in the street. Santa pays a visit for the kids and all of the kids get treat bags courtesy of the local IGA. This year the owner of the IGA who has donated the hundreds of treat bags for several years was given a Corvette car by our local philanthropist, RJ Corman (one of the ten richest men in America or something like that). We didn't stay long because it was pretty cold that night for the boys to be out, but they got to visit Santa and get their treat and that's all that matters right?

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
