Chris, Cathy, Connor and Olivia White visit with Jim and Sandy over Thanksgiving holiday

Once again, the weekend was jam packed with festive and wonderful events! The Holiday Tour of Homes brought many tourists and Holly Springs’ natives to town. The Chamber of Commerce and the city did a marvelous job with the Christmas parade on Saturday afternoon. As always, Santa Claus riding in the big red fire truck was a hit for children and all of us who consider ourselves young at heart. The Apostolic Church outdid themselves with a Gingerbread House themed float, featuring live music.

The Clydesdale Christmas party was not damperen by the thunderous rainstorm, which came during the evening Saturday. What a great cause they have taken on this year - to supply the Hurricane Katrina victims from the Gulf Coast with Christmas gifts that they would otherwise not have. There truly is a Santa! May the magic of the season fill your hearts and homes throughout the next few weeks!

Chris and Cathy White and their 16-month-old twins, Connor and Olivia, were here for almost a week at Thanksgiving, arriving the Sunday before and leaving the Saturday after Thanksgiving. They stayed with Chris’ parents, Jim and Sandy White. Everyone had a great time.

Sarah Doxey Tate of Tupelo, Mrs. Rusty Winter of La., and Mrs. Jack Tyson of Nashville, Tenn., were all here for the Holiday Tour of Homes over the weekend. Mrs. Tate’s granddaughters are featured in a photograph enjoying cookie treats in the latest Southern Living magazine. The girls can be found on page 32.
