Seven winters since we've lived in Idyllwild, we went to our first tree lighting ceremony. We've always been in San Diego during this time but this year was a little different. We head out around 4pm, nice weather but a little chilly.
The Idyll-Beast came out for the celebration.
NBC weatherman Fritz Coleman was the MC this year.
Even Santa stopped by to say Hello. He arrived riding a fire engine.
The guys, all with their drinks to keep them warm.
Baby Alex, cute as usual.
Some christmas singing.
And finally, about two hours later, the tree is lighted. Happy holidays!
