Sundance Square ~ Fort Worth, Texas

What were we doing downtown? Don't get enough of it during week, everyday at work? Actually, no! I rarely get out of the office during the day, only once in a while. It's better for me to stay in, and keep my mind on the work at hand. The mirrored building behind this massive tree is my building, where I spend 5 days a week in a fast-moving environment. It's an exciting and fun job that I've been at for the past 20+ years. Ok, no more work...I'm off now for a few days to enjoy my family and the inevitable arrival of Santa!
We shot a few pics on our way to Razzoo's...ummm, where I enjoyed a hefty bowl of 'crawfish étouffée' with dirty rice! An alltime favorite of mine, and Karo chooses to partake of the fried catfish, and it always looks good. Afterwards, we strolled around Main Street into Sundance Square where Santa's headquarters are stationed in front of the Christmas tree.
Here we are on Main Street in front of Haltom's Jewelers,
and that is their clock in front, decorated with gold ribbon.
Anyone for a carriage ride? By the way, these are Rosemary
trees in the foreground...they smell wonderful!
Here they are again, with burgandy and white pansies.
It was a refreshingly, lovely arrangement!
Holy Moley!!! du Chocolat!!!
Actually, that's Schakolad ~ Chocolate Factory
where some of the finest, sinful-est chocolate can be found!
I'm just calling these 'Decorative Seating Pagodas'
They were very pretty!
The streets began to get more crowded as we walked along...a lot of families, children, and strollers. It was around 4:30pm and slightly cool, somewhere in the 50's.
AND THEN!!! HALLELUJAH!!!
Looks to me like he might be giving a scolding, huh? NAH!!
And this child is 'spot-on' with the eye contact!
That'll get you somewhere!!!
Once again, my dear readers, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year. I'm serious this time, taking a break...at least for a week! I know I have a few blog posts to catch up on. Reading your blogs brings me relaxation and joy! You are all so creative, everyone has something exciting and interesting to offer. That's why I read them, for the history, music, art, great photography, and all kinds of 'how to's'! Thank you for reading my blogs and sending such gracious comments my way!
We're expecting to have our grandson Shawn, aka 'Scooter', aka 'Sweetie', aka 'Scootie', sometime within the next few days...and Santa will make a special trip to our house when he arrives. I will be on guard with my camera, of course!
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!! I MEAN IT!!!

Hi Mom (Merry Christmas)
"Maybe Christmas, 'he thought', doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more."
Whoa up there, Santa!
