Dickens of a Christmas

In front of the Franklin Square

We took Ethan to downtown Franklin for the Dickens of A Christmas street festival today.  It was chilly (46 degrees) but still sunny and nice for strolling through downtown.  We saw a handbell choir, a harpist, clarinet player and other musicians as well as Scrooge (a reformed Scrooge saying "Merry Christmas"), the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, and many other characters in Victorian costume.  The oddest sighting was Cayne's favorite -- it looked like a wedge of cheese in a Santa hat.  We never could figure out why it was there.

Ethan really enjoyed people-watching while we walked around and babbled to anyone who would listen.  He also got to try his first piece of a doughnut -- he loved it and kept trying to get more!

Munching on one of Ellie's Old Fashioned Donuts...YUM!

Watching the horse-drawn carriage go by.
