Maybe someday I will be ready for Christmas like a normal person. But I gotta tell you. It ain’t gonna be this year. I wonder if we could spare one of the elves from the Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships Coloring Contest to go do my shopping, wrapping, and baking for me? Let’s face it; Tinsel
Maybe someday I will be ready for Christmas like a normal person. But I gotta tell you. It ain’t gonna be this year.
I wonder if we could spare one of the elves from the Blaise Alexander Family Dealerships Coloring Contest to go do my shopping, wrapping, and baking for me? Let’s face it; Tinsel hasn’t been a whole lotta help to the others anyway; she may as well earn her Christmas Tree Cakes somehow!
Speaking of the Coloring Contest, we are almost ready to announce the winners. Frosty, Cherry, and Sprinkles have worked hard to sort them out and get them ready for judging! I’ll tell you what, I still don’t know how they did it, but that pneumatic tube to the top of Candy Cane Lane has been really effective! You can’t beat social distancing like that! I hope that Santa gives them a much-needed vacation when they get back to the North Pole. Just a little reward for all their hard work before they get back to making toys for all the boys and girls!
It always amazes me how many entries we get to our Coloring Contest! Hundreds of little come out and show us their best artwork! You wouldn’t believe some of the work, effort, and talent that goes into some of these coloring pages! I’ll be finding glitter around the office for months! I absolutely love it! It honestly goes a long way towards helping me find my Christmas spirit every year!
We will have all the winners and participants listed in next week’s Christmas edition! As always, I can’t thank our local businesses enough for providing the great prizes! Huge shout out to Flyworld/Kaos Fun Zone, English Model Railroad, Elery Nau Hardware, Hooplas, Treasure Castle Playland, Harder Sporting Goods, AMC Theater, Dairy Queen, Trout Pond Park, and Faxon Bowling!
So we know that I am behind the eight-ball as always, but how are your holiday plans coming along? Have you ticked everyone off your list? Have everything wrapped and under the tree? Does your home smell like a Hallmark movie because you’ve been baking for weeks? Just know that if this describes you — I kinda hate you. I’m kidding!! But please come help me! And bring wine! I have literally no idea how I am going to get everything done!
At least my tree is up, and my adorable, but also a little creepy, vintage Christmas decorations are all out! That was a task in itself in trying to find space for them among all the houseplants!
In the meantime, if you need me, I’ll probably be out shopping!
Oh! And speaking of shopping! Please don’t forget to upload pictures of your receipts to buylocalwinlocal.com/webb. The Chamber of Commerce is giving out tons of great gift cards to local businesses to the winners each week! And it’s super easy to enter. We also have a link on our website, webbweekly.com! You can enter to win every time you shop at a business in Lycoming County!
