when matt got home lastnight we abandoned our gazebo decorating efforts and headed out to marshall to enjoy some christmas lights and fun. it was one of the first really cold nights we have had out here so we didn't hit a huge crowd.
they had the main part of the historic downtown just covered in lights and spewing with christmas cheer. we took a horse carriage ride down the brick paved streets. gage really loved the clippity-clop of our horse friends, candy and bleu. he just wanted to know why they were so slow! cute little boy.
we tossed around the idea of ice-skating but we really weren't bundled up enough for that. we walked around and saw all kinds of cute little shops with the prettiest window displays. i fully intend on returning (with a stroller) and peeking inside.
