The day after Thanksgiving was not spent black Friday shopping, but rather taking down the fall decorations and bringing out the Christmas decorations! It was a beautiful day and we decorated the tree that afternoon with the windows open...I could get used to that!!
Our finished tree and mantle.
We followed decorating with a dinner of Thanksgiving leftovers and then headed out to Clifton Mills; a local attraction with millions of lights, a miniature village and the largest Santa Collection in the country. At 6 on the nose, all the lights were turned off for about 10 seconds and then with music accompaniment a grand light show began. The kids were mesmerized!

They even had the horseshoe with OSU vs MI and the band doing script Ohio!
