A Dickens of a Weekend

This weekend my husband and I had the pleasure of traveling with our good friends, Kaye and Eric (pictured left) to Wellsboro, PA for their Dickens of a Christmas. We had so much fun! Friday we drove up, rented a cabin in the nearby state park and were completely delighted to find that the accomodations were really outstanding!. The cabin was so clean and tidy. The Lord even blessed us with the gift of a blanket of snow to greet us with.

We went into the town of Wellsboro on Saturday morning. Everyone was decked out in their warm Dickens outfits. The streets were filled with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Street vendors were selling their handmade decorations and gifts, and of course lots and lots of food. This was a beautiful day of taking in all the sights and sounds of Christmas. I absolutely loved it! Sunday as we were packing up we had a beautiful snowfall that coated the trees and ground so beautiful and when we did pull out the lake had a pure white blanket of snow on it.

After visiting with our friends relatives we headed back home. Monday we were busy preparing a Christmas meal for 19 of the ladies from church. We ran around all morning trying to get everything set up but in the end it all came together so nice. Everyone had a great time and loved the food and fellowship. I must say this year more than any other year before I am so happy to be taking time with all my family, friends and loved ones. It is much nicer than freaking out looking for last minute shopping gifts!
